Eating and Anxiety: What Helped Me

Abs – February 8, 2018

Lots of Anxiety Sisters have been emailing me about my eating and anxiety blog series to ask “what helped you?” I won’t keep you in suspense any longer–what helped me learn to manage my eating issues (and my anxiety) is an extraordinary place in the mountains of Vermont called Green Mountain at Fox Run, which […]

Eating and Anxiety, Part Three

Abs – February 6, 2018

I want to begin by thanking the many anxiety sisters who have responded to this blog series with statements like, “This is so me!” or “This is my story too!” Although I have been writing about my anxiety disorder for years and am quite comfortable revealing everything about that struggle, writing about my eating disorder […]

Flu Anxiety

Abs – January 31, 2018

Last week, I came down with a nasty cold—clogged sinuses, sore throat, coughing—that kept me home for several days. Various friends and family members called to check on me, and each said a variation of the following: “You better see a doctor. You could have the flu!” No matter how much I tried to argue […]

Apology Anxiety

Mags – January 24, 2018

When you board a plane and need someone to stand up so that you can get to your seat, what do you do? If you are like me, you apologize to your seat mate. But, why apologize? That I have the window seat? Because the airline has packed us in like sardines? That I could […]

Eating Disorders and Anxiety, Part Two

Abs – January 17, 2018

My first visit to Green Mountain at Fox Run (there have been 8 since) opened my eyes to a whole new perspective—an approach to weight loss and overall well-being that I had never previously considered. Are you ready for the big reveal? Here it is:   STOP DIETING   I know. It sounds ridiculous. How […]

Eating Disorders and Anxiety, Part One

Abs – January 9, 2018

Like so many other Anxiety Sisters, I not only have anxiety disorder and depression (managed fairly well through medication and the strategies we write about on our blog), but also an eating disorder. While these may be diagnosed as three different brain illnesses, they are all connected and intertwined with each other. In particular, my […]

Guiding Words vs. New Year’s Resolutions

Mags – January 2, 2018

Just as I was finally starting to believe I had survived the holiday season relatively unscathed—only the usual garden-variety anxiety with a smattering of depression—New Year’s Day rolls around, and my anxiety spikes.   Why? Because January 1 is judgment day. It’s the day I am supposed to promise myself in writing what I will […]

We want to hear from you!

Mags – December 12, 2017

Dear Anxiety Sisters, Tuesday is usually the day we post a new blog, but, this week, life (read: anxiety) got in the way of writing for both of us. If you read Abs’ recent blog, you know that she was hit pretty hard with depression about a month ago. She decided to take a couple […]
