Does being around your loved ones help the severity of your anxiety or no effect?

      It depends on the family members. I have many toxic members that make it worse. But my husband is my rock and he helps my anxiety more than anyone else.

      Everyone is different, I recharge around small groups of people that I like. So when I’m anxious I guess that carries over because hanging with (people I like to be around) usually eases my anxiety. But I know several people who default the opposite direction and seclude themselves. Not that one is better than the other just different.

      People increase my anxiety. My sister is one of three family members I love (the other two live five hours away) and she doesn't help my anxiety but she doesn't make it worse. She's not toxic or anything, just being around other people doesn't make my anxiety better.

      It depends on the company!

      It depends. Certain family members are not helpful and on some days if the anxiety is really bad I just need to be alone. But usually sitting around with family members that do help and doing an stressor activity liking watching a movie definitely helps

        @Emmazing my husband doesn’t think he helps, but he does. Just by being there and allowing me to talk through it! My father though, literally increases my anxiety.

          @WhimsyTurtle my father has terrible anxiety and just increases all of ours.
