10 Things People Don’t Realize About You, When You Have High Functioning Anxiety

We all feel a little anxious whenever a tensed situation comes up in life. Whether we are going through a particularly busy schedule, or have an exam or interview lined up, some level of anxiety actually helps us focus more on the task at hand.


But, the situation becomes problematic if that level of anxiety gets out of control and we start feeling nervous and tensed for everything in life.

A note of caution in the starting; we are not professional psychologists who are trying to tell you that you have a high functioning anxiety, which needs to be treated as soon as possible. Though, if you feel that you are not able to handle it, we highly suggest that you take professional help.

Here, we are trying to tell everybody (people with or without anxiety) what it feels to be anxious most of the times. People jump to conclusions that an anxious person has become lazy, indecisive and passive, but they fail to understand that it is anxiety which is making them do all sorts of things that they never did. We are here to tell you that you are not alone and that you are understood, and exactly for that purpose, we are listing out 10 things that most people don’t understand about people with anxiety. You may want to read this if you yourself have anxiety or have someone around you who suffers from this problem.

1 Falling Asleep Late, and waking up early

One of the first things that come up as a problem in people with anxiety is that their sleep cycle gets disturbed. They just twist and turn in bed till the wee hours of the morning because their thoughts are not in their control, and when they do fall asleep, they tend to wake up as soon as the alarm goes off. And after that, no matter what they do, they just don’t feel like sleeping again even if they are hell tired.

2 Even after Waking Up, They don’t feel like coming out of the bed

Now, this is a particularly tricky situation, because although they are not going to sleep again, they still don’t want to get out of the bed. They feel too mentally and physically tired to want to do anything and just want to feel the comfort of the bed.

3 The tendency of obsessing over trivial things

This is one of the biggest problems faced by someone who has anxiety. They may think about a word that was said either by them or by someone else days or weeks ago. They may think that the person who stared at them for more than a few seconds had some issue with them. It is just that the smallest of the things which may not bother someone else bothers anxious people to the core.

4 Rethinking past conversations

Somewhere connected to the previous point; rewinding and rethinking about past conversations is something that they do in their mind or even on the chat windows of the social media profiles. They worry that they may have said something wrong and then they just keep thinking about it, which makes the situation worse

5 The thought of the future scares them

There are times when they believe that the present is really bad for them and in that case, the thought of the future scares them even more. They may think that the future has nothing for them and that single thought is enough to make them feel worried.
