I'm Kathy Hopkins and am full of anxieties. Even so, it would be no fun to go fetal in a corner whilst becoming Crazy Hermit Lady. With a nervous stomach (and rambling. plenty of rambling.) I'll explore different anxieties (sometimes with guests) and ways to deal.
A stands for Acrostic! N stands for Neurotic! X stands for [footage not found]! T stands for Thisbitisweak! I stands for I'm not going to finish this bit! Hey fuck-os. Listen to this manic slurpy mess and avoid real therapy.
Welcome to A Cup of AnxieTEA! Hosts Gabby and Zöe talk about how our mental health factors into everything we do in life. We share our struggles and triumphs and hear from experts who can help us figure out how to navigate this world as anxious ladies.

This week we resurrected ourselves from the dead to talk about our jobs, and what makes us so anxious while doing them. While drinking tea. We're really staying true to the format we promised. Warning: lots of biscuit chewing noises in the first three-four minutes. Also I double checked and Arnotts classifies all of their products as biscuits *incl…
Do you own two guitars, a bass, a keyboard, and a really expensive drum kit? Do they all have a thick layer of dust coating their surface? Do you try not to look at them when you walk by? When someone asks if you play, do you say "A little!" just to end the conversation? This one is for you. firstname.lastname@example.org is an email address we have - send…
Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, the perhaps more outdated and obscure Tumblr. That's right. We cover them all. You're welcome. This week we were perhaps more angry than anxious. Send us your stories and ideas to email@example.com so we can do something with it!Anxietea

Send your stories or ideas for topics to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll do someth…
From hemorrhoids to shitting your pants uncontrollably on the train to work, we talk about health, like, a lot. Frankly this episode was hard to chisle down.
