  • Fatigue is constant. I’m exhausted all the time.
  • Making immediate decisions are difficult.
  • If you want to ask me to do something, I’d like to know well in advance so I can mentally prepare myself.
  • I don’t cope well with sudden change of plans.
  • Most times anxiety keeps me from enjoying things as much as I should.
  • I over analyze situations because I’m scared of what will happen if I’m not ready for it.
  • It’s difficult to explain what’s going on in my mind because I don’t even understand it myself.
  • Fear of a panic attack produces anxious thoughts, anxious thoughts bring on anxiety which turn into a panic attack–the vicious cycle continues.

    I also have anxiety and I get anxious often usually in social settings. Finding a outlet like blogging has done wonders to push me outside of my comfy comfort zone.
