Anxiety is NOT a Joke Stamp by lesbian-mermaid Anxiety is NOT a Joke Stamp by lesbian-mermaid
mental illness is not something to take lightly or make fun of. those of us with them have to struggle with so much anyway, your jokes do not make anything better.

i also made this one:

Thank you. I have severe Generalized Anxiety Disorder and my parents think it's a joke.

Not sure if this applies to this stamp, but I have mild social anxiety, and because of it, I get EXTREMELY nervous and panicky around people I do not know, or if I am in an unfamiliar location or situation. I also get VERY paranoid at random times, like when I go outside or out to eat with family, or even when I am in my room.

I agree with the stamp; anxiety, in all its different types and forms, is NOT a joke.

Apologies for not replying right away, but I'm glad that I'm not the only one who struggles with anxiety.

As someone who actually has anxiety, I agree. It's a fucking pain in the tushie.

I might be training my dog to be an emotional support dog for next school year. Anxiety is a horrible thing to have, so I don't understand why people joke about it and lie about having it. Even though google says it's a self-diagnoses you should still get a professional to diagnose you with it before you go out on the streets screaming "I HAVE ANXIETY!!"

//some of my friends joke about my anxiety and laugh when I get anxious or get really annoyed when I tell them I can't do certain things because it could cause an anxiety attack. They did the same when I was a cutter, told me to pull down my sleeves more or stop being so negative-
There really needs to be more anxiety/self harm/depression and just mental illness in general awareness. They aren't educated on it at all, and neither are my parents.

Same here! My parents laughed when I had a panic attack from getting two shots, they treat my Anxiety and depression as a joke, they called me crazy for self-harming and threatened to get me hospitalized at a mental institution.

People can be so inconsiderate about it- it's horrible that they would laugh at you for that. Anxiety and depression are some of the most common mental disorders but no one understands what it is and how it works and what helps and what doesn't.
My mom just threatens me when she finds out I self harm or feel depressed. That's not how it should be.

I had Anxiety when I was 9 and I still have it ):> but thank you for making this stamp ^^
And I agree with you that Anxiety isn't a joke, some people at school say it's just because I'm trying to seek attention when I have an anxiety attack
I'm gonna use this plus your artwork is really awesome <:3

Ugh, yeah it sucks. Been dealing with Severe Claustrophobia, that even seat belts set me into a panic sometimes. My mom told me to think of anxiety as a guy that is in love with me.
...Well, this guy is an asshole.

I have really bad anxiety and it makes me miserable at times. I wouldn't wish it on anyone.
And the worse thing is- it can strike when I'm even in a good mood! Blargh. :(

God bless this.

I was diagnosed with severe social anxiety after a break-up from a horrible relationship nearly 2 years ago and it's not "cute" or something to be taken lightly. Your health degrades and you lose friends. It's an actual problem and not just being shy.
