Woke up this morning well before my alarm went off. My anxiety always disrupts my slumber on game days. When I’m laying in bed wide awake staring at the ceiling, Bodie rests soundly next to me. Doesn’t even make a stir if I get out of bed. What little luxuries that get stripped away.
I’m on the bus heading down to Neumann for the opening round of ECAC tournament. This is my first ECAC and I’m thrilled who I’m charging into this experience with. One more week of play with a team that has saved me. Who has given me love and strength. My anxiety is a steady undercurrent right now, but as we near it will reveal its ugly head. But I want to enjoy this day, this first with a group of girls who have changed my life.
