Very often anxiety is not visible. The anxious person may seem to be calm and normal from the outside but from the inside she/he is fighting the most difficult battle.

The Mighty posted a new video in which a young woman shares her experience about her everyday struggles which come with this mental disorder. She talks about her negative thoughts, her inside demons and the physical symptoms like muscle tension and many others.

There are many studies which explain how anxious people perceive the world in completely different way. Unfortunately, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention only 25% of anxious people feel that people around them can understand their condition.

They are negative about everything. So even if they have a loving family, friends, if they are great in doing their job, anxious people always think like: “I’m letting everybody down.” or “I’m a bad friend,” and “I’m not good at my job”.
