Anxiety Girl

As a girl who is recovering and who knows people who are recovering from anxiety, these comics really hit the button so to speak with me. In particular - anxiety girl, an anti hero who can speak for us all. 

An anxiety disorder is a medical condition characterised by persistent, excessive worry. Speaking from experience, think of it like extreme first world problem worry over everything and anything. Like worrying because you're worrying. Or worrying because you're not worrying. 

This disorder interferes with a person’s ability to carry out or take pleasure in day-to-day life. This means always having that sinking feeling in your stomach, feeling faint all the time, not feeling happy, forgetting how to laugh, over compensating, looking fake to outsiders, or becoming severely introverted. This can lead onto depression (they tend to go hand in hand) and other mental disorders.

Anxiety should not be taken lightly, it is not simple 'a lot of stress' or 'just a symptom' or 'she/he's just over reacting'. It is the by product of a low self esteem and little self value, and it is completely and utterly okay to feel like this. There is a lot of help out there, listings are as follows:


But instead of ending up on a downer, you can find the full list of hilarious but true comics here

About

I am a girl, last time I checked. I love food, friends and family and sports that involve orange balls with lines with back boards. I'm arty and have a hate-hate relationship with math.
I live under a rock, don't have a phone and am down right crazy awesome.

I go to bed at 8 and like my sleep. ♥
