Hey! My name is Tia. I'm attempting to start a blog all about anxiety, how I deal with it. I mean I know there are many different types of anxiety and the way people deal with it but I'm not going to get to that much detail at the moment. Here's a little background story of me. Just so you can get to know me a bit so I don't just jump in with some random rubbish about anxiety.
I did originally have a YouTube Channel. Or started one anyway, I ended up deleting all the videos because I was scared loads of people at school would find out and shame me. I found out I was suffering from anxiety at the beginning of Year 7. I started having these random thoughts and they started turning into scenarios in my head. Not long after that I started crying and having random thoughts about how bad life was. It would distract me from my work in school and I would often stop during a lesson and just side-track.
Then I realised I had anxiety. I found out a couple of my close friends had it too and we talked to each other about it and supported each other. A few months later when I went to Wales, with my family on holiday, I was scared to go out to the shops round the corner or the park down the road with my sister. Purely because I had social anxiety as well. I would avoid going out or if my parents asked if I wanted to go to the park with my sister I simply said NO. I hated myself. I hated the way I looked. The way I talked. Having friends, who I knew supported me whenever I needed to let out my stress, was a big help to me whenever I felt down or upset or stressed.
ANYWAYS. I hope you enjoyed this little (BIG) story about me.
