      I have Generalized Anxiety Disorder.. it's a terrible feeling. I have had it under control thanks to having my medicine. It's a Medication for life

      I eventually turned to medication to help me. But meditation, exercise & finding hobbies that keep your mind busy will help also.

      I like wrapping myself up in blankets or doing things that make me happy like reading or listening to music

      Music, art, tv, and talking with people I'm comfortable with. I've also found that when I'm outside with other people, saying that I'm anxious and why I'm anxious (if asked of course) has helped me a lot 💕

      1. Set up a support system. Having parents, peers, therapists, and/or school counselors has helped me with a lot. 2. Every day that you wake up, and before you start your day, make a plan on what you want to accomplish. Don't beat yourself up if you don't finish or even start what you wanted to do. There's so much time in your life to do it. 3. Kind of adding on to number 2, tell yourself to get through the week, school day, work day, hour, etc. 4. Reflect on what makes you anxious and why. Practice using coping skills for smaller scale situations before using them for "big boi" ones.

      everybody handles it a little differently according to what feels right. for me, my biggest help was having someone to talk to in a judgement free zone, like my high school counsellor. my mom too, sometimes. these days it's my best friend. it's easier to fight it when you don't feel trapped and isolated. also, create a routine of caring for your body and mind in a safe, warm space where you can be open with yourself. make your room into the most relaxing, comforable space possible. play soft music, hang soft lights, light soothing candles, and focus on the actual sensations you feel physically, rather than your intangible emotions.

      remember that you are safe and loved as often as you can muster to remind yourself, make sure to leave ample time for self care and self regulatory things, have some cocoa or tea if you like it and really the big part is just management. it wont go away really unless you consider medication and intense therapy and even those things take time. be gentle with yourself is the biggest part of coping.
