It’s no secret that I adore all forms of adventure: hiking and camping, reading sff books, and playing video games all help me to forget the world for awhile. And with it, my anxiety. I don’t talk about my struggles with anxiety and depression much on Reader Voracious, but they’re part of my everyday existence and shape who I am as a person. The same anxiety that cripples me with fear also inspires me to work hard and take pride in my work.
As Mental Health Awareness Month comes to an end, I wanted to open up a little bit about my anxiety to maybe help others out there. I knew this was the perfect time to write about my love of video games and how they help manage my anxiety.
