having anxiety and depression is like being scared and tired at the same time. it’s the fear of failure but no urge to be productive, and it’s wanting friends while hating socializing. it’s like running a marathon with the willpower of a corpse because you want to get to the end but you also want to sleep and evaporate into the soil and become compost for snails and flowers because then at least you’re useful
My result: Congratulations! You’re the Eighth Doctor
You’re a true romantic, a real believer in the power of people and their collective abilities.
You may have seen some unpleasant things in your time, had to deal with traumatic events, but you’ve never let them soil the purity of your faith in the basic goodness of humans, and this is written across your face.
It’s a hugely attractive feature, and this can sometimes lead you into trouble. but people generally feel better for having spent some time in your presence.
Your result: Congratulations! You are the First Doctor!
Some people think you are crabby and difficult to get close to. They may have a point, but what they see as rudeness is just you being careful with the friends you pick.
You have incredibly high standards, but once someone has proven themselves to be worthy of your attention you’ll pull an entire planet apart for them. And rescue them in the event of a Dalek attack.
Also, woe betide anyone that thinks you are frail or weak. There’s a spark in your eyes that could become a raging fire.
Your result: Congratulations! You’re the Ninth Doctor
Life has not always been kind to you, and in order to keep going through the tough times, you’ve adopted quite a hard shell.
You can be sarcastic or playful, hard-bitten or over-excited, but these are all ploys to keep anyone from getting too close.
You only trust a very small, select group of people – maybe one or two at most – but those people are worth a planetary weight in gold.
They make you the functioning adult you are today.
Some things I’ve learned in the CBT clinics I’ve been going to regarding anxiety that I thought might be helpful to some.I need to show that panic disorder one to a lot of people wow
THIS THIS THIS THIS
Phobias YES. You do not fuck around with someone’s phobia, no matter how strange it may be. They can’t help what they’re afraid of: it’s irrational for a reason!
I appreciate it being mentioned that some people with social anxiety are relentlessly outgoing to make up for feelings of panic and inadequacy. I wear a weird costume and talk with strangers for a living, and I appear incredibly outgoing. Sometimes I feel like the only way to hide the panic and the racing heart and the fast breathing is to be be EVEN MORE SOCIAL and to talk with EVERYONE so it looks like I have my shit together.
