Hello, I’m Hannah, and I have anxiety!


NBC

I’ve had it for as long as I can remember (both social and generalized), so I definitely felt it as a kid. 

Back when I was little, I thought I was just ~shy.~ Nope! I was terrified of anything and everything!

Whether you had anxiety growing up like me or just found certain situations anxiety-inducing, here are 25 posts I just found a little too relatable when it comes to anxiety.

Note: Obviously there is a difference between being anxious sometimes and having anxiety. I do have anxiety and can relate to this post, but you could also totally relate if you don’t have anxiety and found these situations anxiety-inducing as a child!

1.

I know eye tests were supposed to help you, but I cannot tell you the anxiety that they gave me as a kid.

3.

But the ultimate anxiety-inducing part of school was literally just having to speak in class.

My heart rate sped up as SOON as I heard icebreakers being introduced.

Presentations felt like a personal attack.

And if we had to read aloud??? I just KNEW I’d be stumbling over every word.

I was good at school and all, but the anxiety that the teacher could pick me to answer a question at any given moment was actual torture.


Twitter: @soIemnIyswear

Raise your hand if every report card said “I wish she’d speak up more in class.” No thanks, I have anxiety!!

8.

Although nothing can beat the adrenaline rush that came after.

Speaking of class…why did my brain do this?

brain: "u could scream right now. no one's stopping you. just open your mo-" me: "what the fuck why would i" brain, banging its fists on the table: "scream! scream! scream! scream!"

I used to think, like…what if I just stood up and started waving my hands like those car dealership inflatable guys yelling “LALALALA”….what would everyone do….and then I wouldn’t be able to stop thinking about it.

Every kid with anxiety knows allll about leg bouncing in class.

So many coughs held in…that couldn’t have been healthy…

I used to do this EVERY DAY in study period.

"Anyone else have that anxiety that your music is actually playing out loud so you constantly take off your headphones and listen just in case?"

13.

Mostly because I was watching Tangled on my iPod, which I did every day in study period. Why consume new media when you have your comfort film/show you watch every day?

Going through airport security is one of the most harrowing experiences an 8-year-old with anxiety can have.

Though it’s closely followed by your mom leaving you alone in the checkout line.


Twitter: @mattedward98

When I go home for the holidays my mom STILL does this, and I STILL start to have heart palpitations, even though I have my own credit card now.

16.

And the first time I bought something without my mom there…one of the most stressful experiences of my life.

"does anyone else get really anxious when the cashier hands you change and you’re hurriedly putting it away in your wallet so that the next customer in line can proceed or is that just me"

17.

Oh, wait. Never mind. The most stressful experience of my life was every time my parents forced me to call a friend’s house BY MYSELF if I wanted to make plans with a friend.


Twitter: @kadymcdermottx

Their dad would always pick up and I’d have to ask to speak with Alexa and they’d joke around like “who’s Alexa?”…harrowing.

18.

And ordering takeout??? Still can’t do it.


Twitter: @hansaz_

Thank god for online ordering.

19.

Even hanging out with friends could be stressful.


Twitter: @dewycheek

Why am I still like this?

20.

I mean, at any moment you could say the wrong thing!!

Receiving stickers was always a joyful experience at first, but things would always soon take a turn.


Twitter: @HiyaImMaya

I ordered stickers for my laptop last year and I was literally sweating trying to decide where to put them. I knew I could move them but they would’ve lost their stickiness and maybe curled up on the sides and then I’d have wasted the sticker and AHHHHHHH.

22.

Public transport was really something else as a kid.

"nothing makes me more nervous than my bus taking a different route then it normally does like???? where are u taking me ... I am naked and alone in this universe and no one is watching over me"


ierohero / Tumblr / Via rockboci.tumblr.com

Even the schoolbus taking a new route gave me anxiety.

23.

There will never be an “oh shit” moment as bad as when your mom gets home and you realize you forgot to do an errand she asked you to do.

24.

I still do this.

"Does anyone else with anxiety find themselves constantly googling the definition of different words? Even if I know the definition of the word, I still google it before I use it in conversation just in case I was wrong so I don’t look stupid."

25.

And finally…I think all anxious kids can relate to this.
