When I was younger, I felt out of place with my peers and out of touch with any emotional connection. I always wondered what was wrong with me. This kept me from making new friends and fitting in with the other kids. Now that I'm older, I realize it was anxiety. I didn't think it would have such an impact on my childhood and adulthood. When did you find out that you were struggling with anxiety? What were your thoughts, and how do you deal with this struggle?

      For me when I found out and when I actually accepted it were two different things it was like okay I have anxiety. It wasn’t until I got medicated that I was like wow so many things I didn’t do because of this illness. And now if my anxiety is high it really helps to just take a step back from everything and really tell yourself that you’re being irrational and it’s not your fault it’s just your brain trying to protect you.

      I always had stomach problems, and my doctor finally figured out it was all due to extreme anxiety. Ive had it for a very long time, and some days are way worse than others. I have meds/a psychologist with me, but sometimes it feels like you're drowning under the stress

        @BrookXbangtan Anxiety will do that to you, but in the end everything will be okay 💜

      I figured out that what I dealt with wasn't normal around sixth grade, was diagnosed in seventh, but I've dealt with it all my life. Took years of therapy and medication, but I can function and be successful now!
