Fire in the Skies

All of a sudden the leaves were gone
The pages were turned, the end of the song

I've had my fair share of anxiety leading to panic attacks, some that would leave me restless for days and not know which way to turn. It made me desperate to find some kind of solution because burying it definitely was not helping.
