What people with anxiety actually hear in everyday situations

While hearing the dreaded phrase, ‘we need to talk’, can get anyone pretty worked up, people diagnosed with anxiety can have a way rougher experience. In this series of comics by BuzzFeed’s Charlotte Gomez, we get to delve into the psyche of those with anxiety disorders.

The comics depict different everyday scenarios wherein people are saying one thing and those with anxiety hearing another – almost always something more dreadful. For example, a noisy car might seem odd for one person, but it might seem like the beginning of a fiery death for another.

It’s a lighthearted take that shows how feelings of fear can disturb someone in the most ‘normal’ of situations. You can head on over here to find resources on getting treatment and support against anxiety.
