      Hi! I have anxiety too, I was diagnosed at 14 or so. It's part of what led me to study psychology. One thing I have learned that helped me be more at ease with my anxiety is that our feelings tend to be very physical. Anxiety presents like stress can. And so it can effect all of our body's systems. Digestive, cardiovascular, muscular, etc. So physical symptoms are both common and expected. I know when my anxiety gets bad, I can't sit still, I twitch.

      Hey! I first experienced symptoms of it around 7 years old but received a diagnosis at 16! It started as excessive itching when I was in an uncomfortable situation so I had assumed it was just allergies! I’ve also gotten all sorts of medical issues and it turned out to be my mental health. I’m down to talk and be there for you!

      Hello! I’ve also been experiencing anxiety. It is the reason I have an eating disorder. Whenever I have anxiety I get dizzy and feel like my mouth is numb or my body goes numb. It’s hard to overcome and I still haven’t been able to overcome it but if you need anyone to talk to. I can be here for you.
