What I mean when I say “I can’t do that”- Anxiety Version:

  • I am unable to do that
  • I am too stressed out to do that
  • I cannot face the humiliation of attempting to do that
  • My body will physically not allow me to do that
  • I am on the verge of a panic attack
  • I cannot do that

What people hear:

  • I am unwilling to do that
  • I am just shy
  • I am overreacting
  • I am lazy
  • I need to get more experience in social situation to help my anxiety
  • I need a push
  • I don’t want to do that

once again my time off sixth form coming to a close is being celebrated with a mild panic attack and trouble sleeping


i am seeing mcbusted for the first time in exactly one week!!!!!!!!

(((they played busted at alpha last night and i got so excited that i wanted to cry because i wasn’t sure how to deal with it)))

this has absolutely ruined me

haven’t done any revision/work whatsoever in these holidays, which basically means i am a failure of an a level student

i have exams starting next week though, so i am genuinely fucked

i’ve basically left the house ~3 times in the holidays and everything sucks
