Anxiety is the most common mental disorder in the world. Currently, it affects about one in 13 people, meaning that approximately 7.3 percent of the world's population is facing these struggles every day. For someone who doesn't have it (lucky them!), it may seem like something that can easily be shrugged off. I'm sure that many who are struggling with their mental health have heard their "just-cheer-up's" more than enough.
Quite recently, someone started a thread on Twitter about what anxiety feels like. The person wrote that their anxiety feels like an increased heart rate, worrying about the future, feeling disconnected from the world and other symptoms. Other people started sharing their symptoms as well, thus making the thread go viral with almost 17k likes. Scroll down below to read people's answers on what anxiety feels like to them and comment on whether you've dealt with the same struggles (and even maybe how you managed to overcome them!).
