8 Things Only People With Anxiety Understand

8 Things Only People With Anxiety Understand

“Agreed. Totally. My wife feels helpless, but she can see me suffering and doesn't push me. She waits until I'm better and then gently reminds of all the chores I neglected. I'm a lucky guy.”

“"When you have two people commiserating on the negative -- even if it’s coming from a place of support -- Stanford University psychiatry professor Keith Humphreys says you you’re actually doing more harm than good."

False. Talking with someone else that has anxiety has been very therapeutic. Knowing that others are going through what you're going through is very helpful.”

“"commiserating" is in more of a sense of sympathy talk or pity talk. Basically negative talk and that's not good. Talking so someone about the same things you are going through is therapeutic, but when you're in a negative position on it, it makes the anxiety worse. Example, my husband knows nothing about anxiety and it's not an easy thing to explain to someone else. He gets a little aggravated sometimes, doesn't understand it because it's hard to explain in a way someone can understand and then most of the time he just leaves me alone when I'm having a panic attack because he doesn't know what to do or say because it's in myself and I'm the only one that can help it”

“Agreed. Also I don't fully agree on the avoiding triggers thing. Before I was medicated, if my parents didn't help me avoid triggers it was life threatening. I have in the past run straight for a busy street trying to avoid a bee of some form or a wasp, yellow jacket, etc. Everything tuned out, all I cared about was getting away from it. Which meant they had to physically tackle me and stop me before I got myself killed. My father hated me for it because he doesn't believe in mental disorders and always told me I was being stupid they can't hurt me! (lies, they can It's the initial trigger of the panic and fear. A Yellow jacket bit me), and my mother understood that I couldn't control it because of my mental disabilities and anxiety. I was literally blinded by panic. It was embarrassing as heck too which made me even more freaked out to leave the house, and depressed that I couldn't control it, angry that I was so stupid, etc.”

“Wow. I don't really know how to respond to such arrogant, ignorant condescension. Poehler is recognized throughout the entertainment industry for her comedic acting skills. She's been working for years and she gets exactly the recognition she deserves. Because she's good at it.

"Her comedy is obvious"

Thanks for setting me straight, rudewaitress. I didn't realize you were such a boring combination of pretentious egotist and mind reader. I feel sorry for you. When asked for an example of someone funny, the first person that comes to mind is a woman that passed away 14 years ago. You must have very little humor in your life.”

rudewaitress on Oct 25, 2013 at 10:55:51

“"arrogant, ignorant condescension", "boring combination of pretentious egotist and mind reader". I know you didn't mean to be funny, no really, I KNOW you didn't mean to be funny, but your well-thought-out comments were funnier than anything that ever came out of Amy Poehler's sophomoric mind/mouth. I hate watching women who depend on juvenile comedy to make a living........i.e. the entire Bridesmaids cast.  Talk about boring??  And of course I gave Madeline Kahn as an example of who I found funny....why not start with the best?  Very few other women in film/TV come to mind other than Doris Singleton and her "Marie" character on Everybody Loves Raymond or Tina Fey on 30 Rock.  Perhaps your idol, Amy, could benefit from the writers these women were fortunate enough to have had.  But then again, doesn't she write most of her own material?  That would explain it all........except for her mediocre acting skills.  Ooops, I've opened another can of worms.  How rude of me.”

“Okay, that's kind of vague.  I think you're saying that Amy Poehler is trying to be funny, but she's going about it in an obvious way.  There's really nothing I can say to that except that's your opinion and I happen to disagree with it.

Madeline Kahn was very funny, no doubt.  I'm not a big fan of musical comedy, but I'm Tired is a classic scene in a classic movie and she was incredible in every scene.  I loved her in What's Up Doc and Young Frankenstein as well.

She's not a singer, but I've been laughing at Amy Poehler characters for years since Upright Citizens Brigade and she's got great comic timing and range.  In Leslie Knope, she's created a character that is sweet, nutty, and unique.  I don't see many other comediennes that have her talent.  She's very funny.

I'm guessing that you're not a fan of the documentary simulation style of Parks and Rec.  It's your loss.”

rudewaitress on Oct 24, 2013 at 10:45:29

“We'll agree to disagree......but I will say that your pal Poehler is one of the luckiest women in show biz.  Yes, she does try too hard and her comedy is obvious, but it's also the same old, same old, lacking ingenuity and certainly the subtle nuances that the greats have down to a science.  Her biggest fault is that she THINKS she is being funny at every turn and EXPECTS the same reaction each time.  Oddly enough, her eyes give that away every time.  Putting time in on SNL does not guarantee someone a free ticket to any available comedy roles, yet somehow I see Amy Poehler feeling she's entitled.  I suppose if you like that dumbed-down kind of humor that works just fine.  (We won't even get into her acting skills.)”

“Okay, but what about Parks and Recreation?  Can (will) you provide an example of what you find funny?”

rudewaitress on Oct 23, 2013 at 00:04:47

“An actor or actress who is convincingly funny without obviously trying to be funny is what I enjoy watching. Madeline Kahn immediately comes to mind......few could do comedy for the big screen better. Most of her films are gems......my favorite happens to be What's Up Doc, but her role in Blazing Saddles, particularly her tor de force singing I'm Tired, is not only hilarious but pure comic genius as well.”
