It is widely known that health care costs are extremely high.

Battling Anxiety

Friday, April 19, 2013
By: Jenna Lindsey Channell

College is a time of great growth for a young adult. Sometimes, you completely lose sight of who you are.

It can debilitate you to a point where you wake up in the middle of the night shaking and short of breath. I battled anxiety my sophomore year of college and am proud to say that I am now happier than ever. I lost sight of what I wanted out of life.

I found a few sites about the regulations but they were very dry and I could not imagine writing anything overly thrilling with such dry material.

This immediately intrigued me so I had to read more. This is one of the most exciting aspects of researching for a blog article.
