" Anxiety is like a game of tag. You have your base or, if you’re lucky, bases. Once you leave your base and for the entire time you aren’t on base, you constantly have this uneasy feeling because someone could tag you at any moment. When you have chronic anxiety, these bases are the places where you feel most comfortable and the least anxiety. Home, your room, your car, etc. When you leave them, there’s always that uneasy feeling of the unknown and being chased, but without the adrenaline, of course. "
