I always felt that way -- Nothing but the best: I had to learn that it was okay not to be good at everything -- Obsessions: Drug addiction didn't get rid of my anxiety; it made it worse -- The bathroom chronicles: My severe stomach pain was a clear sign that I had to find ways to chill out -- War story: Being separated from my family when I was just sixteen triggered years of chronic anxiety
