Help Us Show What Anxiety Really Looks Like

It's not as simple as a stock photo of someone biting their nails.

When it comes to covering mental health, all too often the media rely on stock photos like this to convey their story:

More often than not anxiety has no external signs and the people suffering with it look just like everyone else.

Maybe you went to a party where you looked like you were having fun on the outside, but inside you were feeling the full effects of your anxiety.

Help us show what anxiety really looks like by telling us a little bit about your history with anxiety and sharing a photo of a time you were suffering with it, and your submission could be featured in a future BuzzFeed Community post.
