New Seasons: We Are Moving…again!

Midnight Paranoia

I have been pretty open with all of you about my struggle with anxiety, but I have not talked so much about it’s shadow. I would like to introduce you to my Paranoia. He does not show up very often. Mostly around midnight, when I am alone. He whispers nightmarish thoughts in my ear. He pokes …
