It is 3am and you wake up suddenly, hearing the beating of your heart echoing in your ears. The clock ticks slowly by your bed, and darkness blankets your windows.
“How am I going to do this?” you say to yourself.
Finding a way to make your mortgage payment, living through a tense day at the office with an unreasonable manager or hitting the pavement to look for clients feels like too much.
Your stomach tightens. The air thickens in your lungs as you feel pressure on your chest like a slow vise.
Thoughts quickly turn into poison, and they flood your body with fear.
After a fitful attempt to go back to sleep, you wake up, go downstairs and make a cup of coffee. Bad television or cute YouTube videos take the edge off of your anxiety. You are thankful for your Facebook friend in London who is awake and willing to banter with you...
