10 Things People with Anxiety Deal With

Many people experience anxiety, whether it be social, stress-induced, or one of the many other forms. Anxiety is a real condition and it isn't something to joke around about. Here are just ten things that people with anxiety have to deal with.. sometimes even on a daily basis.

1. Panic attacks. The absolute worst feeling someone struggling with anxiety can feel. Freaking out, hyperventilating, crying, shaking... and none of it is in their control.

2. People saying, "oh, just calm down. There is no need to worry."

3. Feeling like your drowning and you can't do anything to stop it.

4. Having someone tell you, "oh, it's just in your head. There isn't actually anything wrong with you."

5. Not wanting to interact with people because it's overwhelming and terrifying.

6. Dealing with anti-depressant medication that can either help your anxiety, or make it a million times worse.

7. Just wishing someone could understand that you wish you were normal and that you could control the feelings you have.

8. Becoming so anxious that your anxiety turns into depression. Then you're anxious about being depressed.

9. Never being understood because "you don't look sick."

10. Absolutely loving when you find someone that has anxiety because you can actually be real with them because they understand you.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
