Last night I had a dream. I was in therapy. It wasn't a great dream because I had to explain to the therapist what my anxiety and depression felt like. How I described it was quite deep and I'd like to share it with you.
To me, it's like being trapped within myself. It's like I have some sort of armour or suit on and my actual self is trapped inside, and I can't escape.
The actual me is someone who is happy and wants to try new things, wants to meet new people, and I'm confident in myself in many ways.
But the armour is so suffocating and there's no way to get it off. It weighs me down, it's heavy and wearing this armour every single day is exhausting.
In my dream, my therapist then asked me "Can you ask someone to help you take it off?"
It was quite an eyeopening dream for me.
Can you describe how you feel?
