Introduction to Kirsi Cannaday, Author of ‘Anxiety-Schmanxiety Blog’

May 8, 2024 Kirsi Cannaday

Hello readers, I am Kirsi Cannaday, a new writer for Anxiety-Schmanxiety Blog. I am excited for the opportunity to share my experiences with anxiety. I believe that being open about our mental health battles gives us the strength to heal from them and gives others the courage to do the same.

I am 30 years old and have two beautiful little girls. I have been married for eight years, and my wonderful husband has been navigating my anxiety experience with me. It hasn’t been easy for him or me, but we’re figuring it out.

Kirsi Cannaday’s Experience with Anxiety

I was diagnosed with anxiety in my 20s after having my second child. I’ve experienced panic attacks, anxiety while driving, and the physical symptoms of anxiety like nausea, dizziness, and rapid heart rate. I’ve had times where I struggled to leave the house or accomplish simple tasks. I feel a constant mental battle with “what ifs” and “should haves” and irritability. This gets heavy sometimes. Some days are a big struggle, but I’m learning how to cope.

Kirsi Cannaday's Plans for 'Anxiety-Schmanxiety Blog'

I went to therapy for anxiety and learned many tools to help me. I’ve learned some triggers for my anxiety are feeling trapped and feeling out of control. Knowing my triggers allows me to gain control when I start to feel anxious and panicked. Sharing my story with others has also been healing.
