My experience with Anxiety

I have anxiety and it effects me in many ways...I found out I had anxiety when I was about 11 years old but I had actually always had it. I would avoid places just because I had a huge fear of something that I thought would be there. I always over-think things which leads to stress, then loss of sleep. I also can get panic attacks all of a sudden but not all of the time. Anxiety effects the ways I think and my actions, It can hold be back from doing something or it could restrict me from conquering my fears. Anxiety is not fun I will tell you that but I know that I can conquer it!
