10 Things People With Anxiety Hate Doing…
Having Anxiety Sucks
Anxiety can make you think the worst in any situation. Anxiety causes simple tasks, that anyone else would find easy, challenging. Such as phoning in sick or making conversation with somebody you hardly know.
If you have ever experienced anxiety you’ll understand how any one of these things can be difficult:
Answering the phone
If you have a job that requires you to answer the phone on a regular basis it can be pretty difficult sometimes.
Parties that involve large groups of strangers is pretty much always a no go. A small bunch of friends that you find easy to talk to is much more manageable.
Phoning in sick and having time off
You only phone in sick when you literally feel like death because you wouldn’t put yourself through the stress otherwise. What if it doesn’t sound believable or what if they think your migraine is another excuse for a hangover?
If you don’t enjoy your job then you probably start to worry around Sunday evening and it spoils your weekend. When Monday morning comes around you start to think of everything that could possibly go wrong.
Not being able to sleep
A vicious cycle begins when you can’t sleep. Something is playing on your mind and you can’t sleep but you can’t stop thinking about it. A couple of hours pass and it’s now the early hours of the morning. You have to be up in a couple of hours. Now you panic because you’re not going to have any sleep but still have to go to work.
Being called shy
This is almost as bad as being called chubby. You’d prefer introvert or even mysterious.
That awkward moment when you see somebody that you know but you have no idea what to say. Most of the time, you see people and just say hi because you’re pretending to be in a rush. To be honest you would much rather pretend you never saw them.
Getting a new job
This one is quite a challenge for anyone with anxiety, you’re really throwing yourself into the deep end. You have to meet new people, learn new skills and what if nobody likes you? What if you can’t do the job and you get sacked?
Not planning ahead
Spontaneity is not an option. If you had to get the train somewhere you would know the time of the train, platform, possible delays, time it was going to arrive at your destination and final destination of the train. That’s before you’ve even left the house.
If you could live on island with just you and your loved ones you would be quite happy.
