    What makes me anxious …

    Hey Everyone,

    Sorry its been so long since I last wrote, however sometimes life just gets in the way.

    So its a bank holiday weekend, who’s excited? … I am !! An extra day of work. YES PLEASE !!

    So today I thought I would open up about something I don’t often talk about unless its with my closest friends or members of family.

    I was diagnosed with severe anxiety when I was around 14/15 years old, (I think, I’m not certain). This is something I deal with day in, day out and some days are definitely worse than others however I have begun to learn and understand what makes me anxious and what can help when I feel like this.

    I’m definitely not doing this to get attention, I would just like to share some awareness and find out if other people get anxious about some of the same things I do.

    So for those of you who don’t know what anxiety is I have linked a website below that will explain anxiety and panic attacks, including possible causes and how you can access treatment and support.

    So what I am going to do is list everything that makes me anxious, there are quite a few but I know when I get half way through I will forget most of them anyway. So I will try my best. Some people may find this interesting but some may not. I just thought I would share my experience with anxiety.

    Some people reading this may have experienced some of these, so if you have why don’t you leave a comment and let me know. If there is something not on this list that affects you let me know, I’d love to know.

    • WORK
    • Meeting new people
    • Crowded places
    • Peoples opinions (When they’re different to mine)
    • When people look at me
    • When people are laughing near by, but I don’t know what they’re laughing about
    • Asking questions
    • Interviews
    • Being told I’m not doing something well
    • Shopping (when its not online)
    • Learning something new
    • Talking on the phone (However weirdly as it is, I do this as a job)
    • Working out
    • Having to present things to people
    • Walking in a room first (this is one that affects me 24/7)
    • Asking the price for something
    • What people think of me
    • My appearance
    • Trying to make plans
    • Unknown numbers
    • Going somewhere new
    • Experiencing a panic attack when I’m with people who don’t know about my anxiety
    • Thinking I haven’t locked doors or turned something off
    • Thinking I look orange when I put foundation on
    • Going out for meals
    • Not being dressed right for a specific occasion
    • Irrational thoughts
    • Things not being in the right places
    • Forgetting things
    • Cancelling plans because of the way i feel at that time
    • Being told I’m overacting or being silly (this occurs a lot)
    • Not having hand sanitizer on me
    • Roller coasters/Theme parks/Water parks
    • When I’m ill for more than a few days
    • When people ask me what I want to do with my life
    • Getting my haircut
    • No locks on bathroom doors
    • Tests
    • Leaving voicemail’s
    • Listening back to myself on recordings
    • Choosing what to where when going out
    • Wearing wintery/black clothing in the summer

    So this is just a few things that make me feel anxious. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to leave me a comment.

    What I will do soon is write a few more posts about my anxiety, maybe explaining why some of these situations make me anxious and how I deal with it.

    I hoped you like this post and I hope that some people can relate to this.

    Anyway Thank you for reading!!!

    Stay Weird .. xx
