      I already suffered anxiety and panic attacks and lived a private life and then some scum criminal assholes broke into my network filmed me naked in my home and bullied and terrorized me for years... if the childhood I had where I was never safe in my home was not enough these cunts breaking into my home and making me relive my childhood all over again will cause anyone more than anxiety I wish I was dead everyday... it never stops!!! I feel frustration and anger every single day that I have to open my eyes ... I feel torture every single fucking day ... skin crawling and every single nerve in my body on overdrive and it never ever stops and now I will never feel safe in ANY ENVIRONMENT ever again

                  Just by this.... I got happy... because when I open up to anyone... just just laugh and say I'm too young to be depressed... it makes me feel pain in my chest and cry inside because everybody just don't understand ... so now I just keep it to myself.... depression is too hard to explain to anybody anyway... because either way... they won't understand... because they only define it as just sadness.... and I know depression is just numbness... but when you combine depression and sadness like
                  Depression..-not caring about anything...
                  Anxiety..-makes you care about everything...
                  I'm stuck between that so I'm able to feel diffetent emotions... not just numbness...

                      I was at the Apple store today and I almost passed out out of anxiety and my heart was beating so fast... I had to step out. All those people.. eyes, the bright lighting. I felt so exposed.. I had to get out. I hate feeling this way.

                              My anxiety has gotten so bad that I get cramps, and they are bad. I also have social anxiety, but all of it’s gotten much better. I haven’t gotten a cramp in about a month now, and I don’t get sweaty when talking in front of my class

                                This is just so accurate, for me. It's like I have my own shadow that talks in my mind
                                "You're not beautiful"
                                "So are you ready to embarrass yourself?"
                                "Ready to hurt someone?"
                                "If everyone will just judge you then, be a skeleton that everyone will love"
                                "You'll never succeed in life"
                                "Soul is the greatest gift you will ever give to them"
                                "You are ugly, useless, brat, boastful, get the poison in your kitchen"

                                Meh, but no one seems to believe

                                  @Sara Farguson thank you for the advice, but no one seems to be happy everytime I talk with people, no one cares, and it's true, they don't understand, no one invites me in their events, parties, I don't actually have friends that I share my problems, but I have friends that made me their problem bins. Even though thank you for your concern, I hope you're fine too (:

                                  HARMFUL CREATURE the next time you think these thoughts talk to someone, hmu even- just please don't listen to the voice, please don't get the poison. I understand how hard it can be but you're worth so much more than throwing your life away.

                                        So that is what anxiety is when you hear negative voices in the back of your head telling you also two things I guess I have it

                                            This is a terrible portrayal of someone living with anxiety, maybe next time hire an actor who really does suffer from anxiety, then she wouldn’t have to act. The director of this video couldn’t even make a porn film look good, no matter anything real

                                                      This is how I lost all my motivation. I fear everything in life even if they are not fearful in anyway. The only way to get rid of the fear is say fuck it, you only life once or convince yourself that you have to form discrimination in the operant conditioning ( nerdy stuffs in Psy)

                                                          you make it all sound like it's nothing but it's so much worse...especially when it's mixed with depression, insomnia, etc...

                                                          I know this is an interpretation but it’s not accurate at all I’ve have really bad anxiety and depression rock bottom self esteem and you can’t just leave anxiety or depression or any of it at home because it’s like an infection and the longer you leave it without getting any help the more it grows and festers. Self harm is pointless I’ve tried it but it was no good music keeps me going and frequent anxiety and panic attacks are sooooo fun to deal with when you just need to get something done.

                                                            I don't think she leaves the anxiety in home and it doesn't feel it anywhere else. I think that's an metaphor, you can notice that she turns her back to axienty. In my view it can means that she is finally leaving well. That she as friends and something with a guy who helped her to get better.
