9/27/2020 marks 6 years since I was diagnosed with anxiety. 6 years. I’ve been living with sis (my mental disorder) for almost a decade and we’re finally learning to get along. Y’all know there’s a story behind every treat and this one is mine. I remember when I first experienced a panic attack. I called 911 because I thought I was having a heart attack. My hands were drenched. I was in a fetal position on the bathroom floor. I didn’t know what the fuck was going on. I was given at least 4 medications to try before I found CBD oil, that worked. It took yoga, therapy, meditation, journaling, and ... baking to cope. One of the first cakes I made during sophomore year finals was this lemon cake. I just needed to do something, anything, other than focus on accounting homework. I was baking through an anxiety attack and didn’t even realize it. I haven’t had a panic attack since March 3rd. God is good. Keep ya head up, my love. When life gives you lemons... make lemon cupcakes. Every time. 🍋
