What you might do
Our natural instinct is to avoid situations that cause us anxiety or stress. When an anxiety condition develops, you might begin to avoid lots of things and/or whatever causes you to worry. It might be places, people or specific situations.
Beginning to avoid things might mean that you slowly spend less time with your friends. You might also begin to find going to school, university or work becomes challenging. You may find it hard to sleep because of your constant thinking and worrying, leaving you tired and lacking in energy. Not enough sleep can often mean that it’s harder to think clearly about things that are on your mind.
