What Anxiety Actually is? These 9 Illustrated Pictures Will Help You To Understand It!

Mental illness is one of the hardest things to explain to those who have never experienced it. While many illnesses have physical symptoms that others can see, the ones that occur in our minds are, to an extent, invisible.

Anxiety can be something that people live with long term. If you don’t have chronic anxiety, it is impossible to understand. You may think you know what it is, but it goes much deeper than the average person assumes.

    This is a very acurate explanation, but it’s something you can never truly get someone who hasn’t been there to understand. One thing you missed, people in my life constantly say ” did you take your meds?”. Like they are a cure all, and with them there should be no anxiety at all. 15 yrs. Of therapy & meds, & people just can’t understand why I’m not cured. Mental health illnesses, are like diabetes, or any other diseases that can be managed, but not cured, I think that is what people need to understand the most. They are just illnesses, like any other.
