Lina is 19, cute as a button and has anxiety; the same as my son. She admitted it to me as she served me and I mentioned his own struggle with it.

I explained a few things to her about his treatment and what medication he is taking. She was fascinated to hear it all.

This is an epidemic borne out of over sheltering combined with social media frenzy which puts pressure on these kids to attain the unrealistic before they understand most of it is illusion fabricated by a vapid society.

"I hadn't seen you for quite a while Madame but I'm glad I did today"

"Me too Lina. Me too"

I just wanted to give her a big hug and tell her things would get better with time which I know they will.
