Okay, Awkwardeers, it’s time. I’ve promised to host this thread for a long time, but was waiting for 1) time when I personally had time and mental energy to read & moderate it and 2) for some kind of initial framing device or question.
Thanks to a nice person on Twitter, I definitely have #2. This person would love to attend an Awkward Meetup, but their anxiety is too severe and is holding them back.
Like the Asperger’s thread we had a while back, this should primarily be a thread BY people with anxiety disorders FOR people with anxiety disorders. Hopefully we’ll end up with stories, tools & workarounds, resources, a place to vent and feel less alone. If you blog about living with anxiety or make creative work about anxiety somewhere else, feel free to self-promote that here – just include a brief description of what’s at the link so I don’t accidentally banish you to spamland.
