Confessions of an Anxious Mortician

welcome to my anxious brain

Who Is GADGirl?

EDIT OCT. 2023: I’ve changed the name of this blog. Well deserved. I’m still anxious. All day; every day. Still very much GadGirl!! Don’t hate me because I’m also now a Mortician.


I had my first panic attack in 1981, when I was 3-years-old. I remember it vividly. My heart raced and I vomited on myself. When I was 28, I finally received a proper diagnosis — Generalized Anxiety Disorder with Irrational Fears. The truth was a long time coming. The strength of my psyche has been challenged almost daily from that point on. I am better for it. I am resilient. And while I refuse to let GAD define me as a human, I embrace it has a part of who I am. And who I am kicks booty.
