Severe anxiety plagues thousands of people everywhere, but yet is often belittled or completely dismissed by those who don't have it, isolating the victim and making them feel alone in their very real struggle. That's where Neurotics-United comes in! The people best suited to help a person suffering from anxiety are people who have suffered themselves. We can relate, because we have been there. We know the confused look people give us when we try and explain why we absolutely can't be the one who orders the food. Because that shit is the worst, right?
We can't just chill out, or relax. We aren't being dramatic. We aren't quiet, inhibited, unfriendly, or disinterested. We are radical as shit though, and it's about time we show it.
NU is not solely a social anxiety themed group, but it will tend to be our main focus as it's one of the most common anxieties, and the flavor of anxiety the founder of the group happens to have in spades.
The PointThe feeling of being understood, that "No way, me too! I thought I was the only one!" moment, is incredibly powerful and important. Having people who won't make you feel like you're insane, and actually being able to relate to you is crucial. When you are around people who are like you, you will find out your anxiety, and your weirdness isn't all that bad. It's just part of your charm. Your fears may not be real, but you anxiety is. And there is no reason to have to deal with it by yourself.
We want this to be a place where we can openly share our experiences and how we cope with them. Anxiety has a way of making us lock away our passions so this is also a place to share other non-anxiety related interests! Gaming, books, movies, dumb internet stuff. We give enough energy to our anxieties as it is, time to focus on the things we love.
Whether your anxiety simply causes you a bit of frustration and stress, or you are absolutely crippled by it, we welcome you with open, probably shaking, arms!
