Today I wanted to speak about the top 3 worst things to say to someone with anxiety.
As you probably already know, I have generalized anxiety. I take medication to help, but sometime it’s not enough.
Many people experience anxiety. Some types of anxiety are healthy, but if the feeling begins to invade your daily life, you may have an anxiety disorder.
Generalized anxiety disorder:
If you know someone with anxiety, please don’t do these top 3 things:
- Don’t ask them what else could go wrong. Something can always go wrong and there’s nothing like the imagination of a anxiety sufferer;
- Don’t text them saying that you could crawl under your desk and cry and then not respond when they ask “what’s wrong?”;
- Tell them if you are going to be late. Don’t go radio silent.
