What is having anxiety like?

So someone posted this on instagram and I find it very relatable that I decided to post it here. Here goes..

What it’s like having anxiety?


Having anxiety

is like being scared and tired

at the same time,

it’s the fear of failure

but no urge to be productive,

it’s wanting friends

but hating to socialize,

it’s wanting to be alone

but not wanting to be lonely,

it’s caring about everything

then caring about nothing

it’s feeling everything at once

then feeling paralysingly numb,

it’s slowly crippling

but never obvious until too late.
