It’s no fun having anxiety – regardless of how severe your anxiety runs, its a largely invisible condition that few are really comfortable discussing in real life despite the fact that it controls a large part of how they live their lives. But one area where people do seem to loosen up and become more willing to talk about their struggles with anxiety is Twitter – particularly when they can mask their pain and suffering with some jokes.
Remember, you’re not alone – pretty everyone has SOME anxieties they’re dealing with. But thank f***ing god we have the internet, otherwise I’d have no idea what I’d do.
