Anxiety Disorder

Do you know someone with anxiety disorder? I have anxiety disorder. Everyone has a little bit of anxiety but some people have more than others. It is okay to feel scared and upset. I used to not eat in the mornings and I never smiled. I lost a lot of weight and I was never happy. People all over the world have anxiety disorder so don't feel like you are the only one in the world who has it. My mom always tells me that there are some things in life that you just have to deal with like stress. I used to think that every little problem i had was because of my disorder. The things i am most scared of are: my parents leaving, sleepovers, flying on airplanes, storms (mostly tornadoes), and car accidents. Some of these are just life and a lot of people are scared of these situations too. It always makes me feel better if I talk to someone who is close to me to share my feelings. I hope this helps some of you who have anxiety disorder or knows someone who has it.

I have SAD (Social anxiety disorder) and it sucks. It's when you are afraid of doing anything that has to do with socialty. I can't eat, talk or even walk and sit without fear of meeting eyes or catching attention. I actually realized that maybe keeping my mind off my disorder and stop thinking "It's because of my disorder" would help.   X)   Nice article. 5 ***** stars!

You're very brave to say that you're scared. I have a disorder too--a learning disorder called auditory processing disorder. It means I have a hard time following directions and sometimes I hear things differently. I have a hard time focusing on one sound out of a bunch of sounds. I used to blame my disorder for all my problems in my life. Now I've learned that problem are just a part of life. It's good to know that others have simliar problems to mine. Keep writing!
