En dag i livet (A day in the life) / A short film about anxiety


1 out of 3 Danes have mental illness Anxiety is the most common We know this, but what if we could walk in their shoes for one day? I don’t feel like getting up right now… It’s all too much You slept so late again Why can’t you just pull yourself together? You’re going to run out of time Don’t forget to pay the bill today I need coffee before I do anything else What do I need to do today? I can’t remember… Where’s my phone?? That can easily be better… Why am I always so lazy? I think I can wear this or maybe it is too tight and people will think I want attention Just a slut Or… why does she think she looks good in that? Yeah well, this looks stupid People will think I don’t give a shit about my appearance I’ll just take this It’s fine I know I’ve forgotten something… again Ok, phone…purse…travel card…keys…cigarettes… …medicine…a change of clothes…my charger… …earphones…hairbrush…deodorant…makeup…pen… Are you sure the door is locked? Yeah…no… Did I do it? No, it’s fine! Stop it You can’t do this every single time What if he’s working today? I can’t remember if it was his shift today He always touches me when he talks to me I just wish I could tell him to back off But everyone will just think I’m overreacting He’s also good friends with my boss The car behind me is so close I can hardly stand it What if my foot slips and then she drives into me? I need to go home now… otherwise something is gonna go wrong Did I forget to switch off the stove? No… did I? I seriously cannot remember What do I do if it was on all day? It can’t be fucking anxiety I know it There’s something wrong, I know it You should remember next time that they should be in order of customer and not the dates I need to make an appointment with the doctor before work tomorrow The car needs to go to the workshop If I sleep now, I’ll get 6 hours of sleep Did you remember to lock the door? What if he fires me because of it? I have to do it tomorrow I just want to sleep… Anxiety is like quicksand
The harder we try to escape, the deeper we sink in
