IF TONY STARK HAS ANXIETY AND BRUCE BANNER TRIED TO KILL HIMSELF AND THEY CAN STILL SAVE THE WORLD AND THEN CAN STILL BE OKAY THEN I CAN MAKE IT THROUGH HIGHSCHOOL

THIS IS THE BEST MOTIVATOR I HAVE SEEN

[Image is a flowchart. It begins, “Congratulations! Something is happening in your life!” and then asks, “Is it a good thing?” Both the “Yes!” and the “No!” arrows lead to the word “Anxiety” written in large red letters and underlined. Arrows lead from “Anxiety” to “Avoidance” to “Guilt” and back to “Anxiety”, creating a closed loop.]

people with anxiety disorders are so brave like we feel unbearable amounts of anxiety over doing things like going to the doctor or getting on a plane or talking on the phone or taking a test but sometimes we find the strength to do those things anyway even though we’re terrified out of our minds and that’s really amazing. people with anxiety are brave as hell

I was talking to my younger brother the other day, explaining how I had an anxiety attack at someone’s party and felt awful for doing so.

He simply said, “You know, I think anxiety attacks sound a lot like asthma attacks. They keep telling you to breathe and stop worrying, but it’s just not that simple and you can’t help when and where they occur. But you wouldn’t apologize for an asthma attack. Don’t apologize for this, either.”

So moral of the story is I love my brother.

This. Except replace the “mild embarrassment” with “irritation/boredom” (public transport/cabs/cars)

One of the most accurate depictions of a panic attack that I’ve ever seen.

Thank you. Just thank you. Far too many people don’t seem to grasp the concept of what a panic attack actually is. Getting upset is not a panic attack. This is.
