Everyone gets anxious from time to time, which is why it can be difficult for us to understand people with chronic anxiety disorders. Anxiety disorders, however, can be socially and psychologically crippling for those who suffer from them, so The Mighty decided to help give these people a voice by collecting and publishing their comments about anxiety.
The comments, which Bored Panda supplemented with their own photo pairings, offer some specific advice for how to approach with someone who has an anxiety disorder. Most of them, however, have to do with simple compassion and understanding. If you have an anxiety disorder, let us know what you'd like to add in the comments!
