According to the latest statistics, an estimated 284 million people experienced an anxiety disorder across the globe in 2017, making it the most common mental health issue. It was World Mental Health Day yesterday and we've come across a loving story of a couple who fought through anxiety in the most adorable way ever. Going through mental disorders is probably one of the most difficult phases in someone’s life. Denisha Bracey's boyfriend, however, knew exactly how to comfort his girlfriend when she recently faced panic attacks.
Denisha Bracey resides in Canada and her boyfriend of two years, Riley Rankin did something, which can be an inspiration for many.
Denisha was quoted saying, "The last couple weeks I’ve been struggling with anxiety and panic attacks and my boyfriend has been helping me a lot with this. Our 2 year anniversary just came up and he made me this beautiful gift!”
An overwhelmed Denisha expressed, "He made me 'love pills'. Every pill capsule is filled with a little note that says something loving or sweet, something that will make me happy, or a good quality about me. He bought empty capsules and filled every single one and put them in an empty pill container."
Riley shared that it took him three hours to make these notes, "It took about three hours to get everything together. It was definitely worth the time. I think I read about someone doing something similar, like 6 months before. I wanted to make her happy, I wanted her to be able to cope with her anxiety when I’m not around-or even when we’re having an argument-or I just can’t be there for her."
Each 'love pill' had notes like, "You should run for Miss Universe because DAMN!", "Be proud of yourself, you are amazing, think of all the things you’ve accomplished!"
We're not crying, YOU'RE crying. Brb, gonna go give bae the tightest hug!
