EP 669: Naked Life Story - Megan W.
Ever feel like you're drowning in anxiety, holding your breath just to get through everyday life? Megan did. From a young age, she battled crippling social anxiety, her voice silenced by a fear that would leave her shaking uncontrollably. But little did she know, her attempt to escape this fear through alcohol would lead her down a darker path, where the very thing she sought to numb became a prison of its own. From her early struggles with social anxiety to her rock-bottom moment of falling over drunk in the shower, Megan shares her journey with Annie Grace getting real and raw about the pain and the healing that were part of the process. This episode is packed with powerful insights and practical tips on how to stop using alcohol for anxiety relief and start living life pure, unadulterated, and free. Thank you so much for listening to this episode. If you’re ready to see how This Naked Mind can help you on your personal health and wellness journey and wanna learn more.
