In My Blood

Inspired by his challenging experience coping with anxiety, In My Blood is a single written and performed by Canadian musician Shawn Mendes. Mendes shared personal details about his battle with anxiety in an interview with Zane Lowe of Beats 1:

“[Anxiety] was kind of something that hit me within the last year. Before that, growing up, I was a pretty calm kid, super steady… I knew people who had suffered from anxiety and found it kind of hard to understand, but then when it hits you, you’re like, ‘Oh my God, what is this? This is crazy.’”

In My Blood contains lyrics that many who cope with anxiety may relate to and sends a positive message to those who are suffering to continue to stay strong:

“Help me, it’s like the walls are caving in
Sometimes I feel like giving up
No medicine is strong enough
Someone help me
I’m crawling in my skin
Sometimes I feel like giving up
But I just can’t”
