10 things not to say to someone with anxiety

1. Calm down

Short answer, no. You ask me to calm down, I’m going to freak out.

2. It’s all in your head

We know. Doesn’t make it any easier.

3. You don’t look sick

Looking sick and being sick are two different things. We’d get a lot more attention drawn to mental health is one of the symptoms was a sudden loss of limb.

4. You’re very hard deal with

Imagine living in here 24/7. Now that’s hard.

5. What can I do?

We appreciate your help but there is literally nothing you can do but just be there with us.

6. Cheer up

Oh if only it were that simple.

7. You’re causing a scene

Oh, you haven’t even seen a scene yet.

8. What are you anxious about?

9/10 times I have no idea.

9. Now you’re making me anxious

Oh please.

10. You’ll be fine

When? Are you able to give me a time scale oh psychic one.
