Discuss your experiences with anxiety and stress related disorders/conditions and your experiences. What is it/how severe is it?How do you cope with it? Is your family supportive/not supportive? Do you take medicines for it? How are you coping with everyday living? Discuss.

I don't get nervous when in front of a group of people like at school when presenting something. I actually try making the clas laugh. However back then when I would present, like I would smile because I wanted to smile, but something was forcing me to be serious, like my lips kept joining together for some reason and stopped me from smiling. But I wanted to keep smiling. Idk, I guess I was nervous and my muscles were doing their thing. This hasn't happened for a while but yeah just a past experience.

I have social anxiety. I don't take medicine for it. I have a sort of cognitive behavioral therapy from my volunteer ministry work that I participate in. I hate talking to people but this forces me to interact. I've been doing this for over 15 years and so far I still have intense anxiety but I am able to cope. Another thing that helps me is reading books about human nature. I don't really know how to interact well on a social level. I am more of an "explainer" than a "socializer" so reading about people and body language and social cues has helped me to fake it to a degree. I prefer to stay home and watch anime and play video games, but I have a few loving friends and family members who will drag me out of the house. I end up having a good time, but the anxiety that precedes it is quite heavy.

I think I have an easier time being addicted to things than most of my peers. Still, I sort of just will myself to act so that I correct certain behaviors. One of the few I haven't been able to overcome is my caffeine addiction. Not too bad, though. Caffeine is common and not expensive so there's no reason to go through the trouble of quitting again.

I had a panic attack just once and it was stupid and never happened again, so I don't complain about it.

You're probably not going to go belly-up and die just because you're stressed. Don't think about it and just do it. Throw yourself into a situation and watch yourself survive. People are more resilient than they think they are.

Everyone thinks I'm a crazy bitch when I walk in.

Everyone thinks I'm crazy bitch when I walk out. /topic

Kidding, the only real problems I have is when feel like people are calling me crazy. Because of false diagnosis, I'm prone to being over defensive when people find out about them, and I can have break downs from time to time.

My little sister always fixes me on the stop somehow, I don't need medicine or any other help if she's around.

If she isn't around, I normally look for the closest friend and hug them until I feel better. Strangers are surprisingly nice enough to hug you if they can tell you're upset.

Chew my nails and worry. Sometimes I try to sleep it off. I'm not a naturally anxious person, but when I am anxious it eats away at me.

My social anxiety is awful.
I get extremely nervous and panic over the simplest things, I can hardly talk to people in person tbh.
My family isn't that support, they kind laugh about it and force me to do things I mentally and phsyically can't, even if it's something simple like talk asking someone a quick question. I think it makes it worse because when i DO have to talk to someone I'm nervous I'm going to get laughed at because of how awkward I am.
I don't take medication for it and I don't ever really plan on it
I cope with it by sometimes just pretending I'm someone else. Idk if that sounds weird lmao but I'm a really cold, shy person so if I act like the opposite while in awkward scenarios it makes it a little easier.

I always have had social anxiety since I was in kindergarten. This pretty much includes every social situation with strangers, for instance ordering something at a drive thru, asking an employee of a store a question, calling stores/ talking on the phone in general, interacting with people online... actually, a couple years ago I would never be able to post on a forum, and I mean that. Used to make me sooo anxious. I started taking medication though, and it's helped me a lot to learn how to deal with social situations even when I'm not taking meds. Family doesn't really get it, but they try to be supportive. I'm like x10 better these days
