I have severe anxiety, to the point where I worry about almost anything at any point. It doesn't exactly help that I have other mental illnesses that mixes with my anxiety. It's like a gigantic ice cream with 5 different types of topping. It's very unnerving :( :sweat:

Yep. Social anxiety. To the point where I subconsciously avoid the aisles with people (library, supermarket, etc.) and act like a total duck whenever I have to approach a cashier *smacks stuff onto counter and quietly waits for the receipt

I know this is a lil old but I rarely talk. I have PTSD so anxiety is a part of my life. For those that do not know Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD is a disorder that develops in some people who have experienced a shocking, scary, or dangerous event. Fear triggers many split-second changes in the body to help defend against danger or to avoid it. This “fight-or-flight” response is a typical reaction meant to protect a person from harm. Nearly everyone will experience a range of reactions after trauma, yet most people recover from initial symptoms naturally. Those who continue to experience problems may be diagnosed with PTSD. People who have PTSD may feel stressed or frightened even when they are not in danger.

Mine is due to a childhood trauma. We won't get into that. Something that helps me is petting my dog. Of course my issues are bad enough she is a trained service animal but she will keep people away and try to snap me out of it. Now I just wish others understood as well as my sister.

Yes, I do. Mine is also related to PTSD, as is my depression. I have good days and bad days, though unfortunately mostly bad. I don't cope very well, to be honest, I'm still learning how. It's been debilitating and I've been seeking treatment for years. Best wishes to anyone reading this, you aren't alone.
