I came across this blog post about how someone living with anxiety who struggles to explain her anxiety to her peers/family/loved ones. She talks about how frustrating it is and how people don’t seem to understand the actual condition. So she decided to make an “anxiety chart” to help explain her anxiety. I looked at it and thought it was AMAZING and described it PERFECTLY. Here’s the article in case you want to read it: https://themighty.com/2018/03/anxiety-chart-help-other-understand-anxiety/

This is awesome! Many times it’s so difficult to express to others what the exact feelings that we may be going through are, and drawing them out in a chart such as this can definitely be an effective way of trying to express yourself when all other methods seem impossible or too difficult.

I haven’t looked a this since it was first posted a while back I can still definitely relate so much!
