22 years ago today, the first photo was uploaded to the web – and it was of an all-girl science rock band from CERN, signing about colliders, quarks, and antimatter.
Oh, and they were actually really, really good.

    I check my Facebook page 36 times a day for the sole purpose of making sure I have not accidentally posted a nude photo of myself

    I reread an email 13 times before pressing send to ensure I have not written something in the email that could convict me of a crime

    Before taking a stage when asked if I allow flash photography I always want to say “No” because I’m terrified flash photography will give me epilepsy

    I know it doesn’t work like that, still

    I never eat nuts on an airplane out of fear of that I will suddenly develop a nut allergy and if I have to asphyxiate I don’t want it to happen at 30,000 feet

    Twice in the last two years I’ve been aborted from an airplane for running screaming down the aisles as the plane was taking off

    I can’t walk through San Francisco without worrying my indigestion is the beginning of an earthquake
    I brace for tsunamis beside lakes in Colorado
    I’m not joking
    The last time I saw Niagara Falls I couldn’t take it
    It was too much much
    I had to plug my ears to look at it and close my eyes to listen

    Generally I can’t do all my senses at the same time they are too much much

    Like if you touch me without warning, whoever you are, it will take everything I have to not hate you

    Imagine your hands are electrical sockets and I am constantly aware that I am 70% water
    it’s not that I’ve not tried to build a dam

    Ask my therapist who pays her mortgage
    My cost of living went up
    at five years old when I told my mother I have to stop going to birthday parties because every time I hear a balloon pop I feel like I’m gonna get murdered in the heart

    Last year a balloon popped on the stage where I was performing, I started crying in front of the whole crowd
    plugged my ears and kept repeating the word “LOUD LOUD LOUD LOUD” it was super sexy

    That’s what I do
    I do super sexy

    Like when I asked the super cute barista 11 times ‘are you sure this is decaffeinated? Are you sure this is decaffeinated? Are you sure that’- yes I drink decaffeinated and still jitter like a bug running from the bright bright bright

    I have spent years of my life wearing a tight rubber band hidden beneath my hair so my brain could have a hug

    These days when no one’s looking I wear a fuzzy fitted winter hat that buttons tight beneath the chin

    I only ever wear a tie so that when I convince myself I’m choking my senses have something they are certain they can blame

    As a kid I was so certain I would die the way of meteor falling on my head
    I would go whole weeks without looking at the sky ‘cause I didn’t want to witness the coming of my own death

    I started tapping the kitchen sink seven times to build a shield

    My mother started making lists of everything I thought would kill me in hopes that if I saw my fears they would disappear
    Bless her heart but the first time I saw that list I started filling a salad bowl with bleach and soaking my shoe laces overnight so in the morning when I ironed them they would be so bright I would be certain I had control over
    how much dark could break into my light
    how much jack hammer could break into my heart
    My spine it has always been a lasso that could never catch my breath

    I honestly can’t imagine how it would feel to walk into a room full of people and not feel the roof collapsing on my ‘NO NO NO I am not fine’

    Fine is the suckiest word
    it never tells the truth

    And more than anything I have ever been afraid of I am terrified of lies
    How they war the world
    How they sound by our tongues
    How they bone dry the marrow

    How did we get through high school without being taught Dr. King spent two decades having panic attacks?
    Avoided Windows
    Jumped at thunder

    I think we are all part flight the fight
    part run for your life
    Part ‘please please please like me’
    Part Can’t breathe
    Part scared to say you’re scared
    Part say it anyway

    You panic button collector
    You clock of beautiful ticks
    You run out the door if you need to
    You flock to the front row of your own class
    You feather everything until you know you can always, always shake like a leaf on my family tree and know you belong here

    You belong here and everything you feel is okay
    Everything you feel is okay

    "Panic Button Collector" - Andrea Gibson

    This is the best poem about anxiety that I have ever read.

    Good poem
