    I have social anxiety.

    Yeah, the cliché 'can't order things' or 'count my money twenty times' type. I can't do things alone. I can't buy things alone. I have my friends order for me. I can't walk down the hallway alone. I can't present by myself, or give speeches. And honestly? It sucks. So don't...

    Anxiety and Fear

    I have such bad anxiety that I worry about things constantly. I worry about tomorrow before it even arrives. I have tried to talk to family about it, but it seems they don't take it seriously. I worry so much that sometimes my chest hurts.
