    Yes especially when people expect me to cope with it or "work through it" the same way they have. It's different for everyone. I can't treat my anxiety disorder the same way I treat being nervous about something. I'm sick, not just dramatic.

      i was expected to go into work while having seizures and it definitely made me feel less worthy of my emotions

    Yes, even after 20+ years of treatment. It's usually because of the ridiculous opinions of other people. Or, very specific to my bipolar disorder, part of my mood swings. Anyway, you are not alone in this!
