I’m not gonna lie, anxiety can be a pain in the ass. I have had anxiety nearly four years now but I have learned to cope with it. Fitness, diet changes and socializing have all helped. However,there are still some things that trigger anxiety in me.
- Dark rooms:
I must have at least a small lamp in the corner if the room is very dark. I’ve always been a tad bit afraid of the dark but I think it’s mostly down to fear of the unknown. Not great in cinemas either.
I will not go into an elevator. Claustrophobia x 1000
I’m still having trouble travelling on a bus due to panic attacks but I’ll slowly be training myself shortly to take a full bus journey anxiety-free before college.
- Going to an event:
- Making a phone call:
I am guilty of asking my parents to arrange a doctor/hairdresser appointment because well, I can’t.
I have many other fears and phobias but ones that I don’t get panic attacks from.(arachnophobia etc). Anyway, these are the main scenarios where I panic due to anxiety.
