    Your earliest memory of been anxious?

    Think back. How far back are some of us going? The earliest memory of an anxious kid or an anxious teen.


    I know when I was young I always had a stutter. I grew out of that one. Used to never want to go to school. This would have been primary school. Talking about age 6 or 7. Then it all just seemed to vanish for many years. until my very late teens.

    So where you anxious as a young kid?

    I remember being awkward at my 3rd birthday party at the age of 3. I felt really embarrassed and intense anxiety when people held me and sang happy birthday.

    12. Moved from Primary to Secondary school, went to one out of area so didn't really know anyone. Really, really started to struggle with panic attacks then. Got worse from there on.

    I was scared to start school. I was 5 at the time. I'd been hit on my first day of pre-school by the "carer" for no reason, so you can understand why I was nervous and was already learning to distrust authority.

    Idk about earliest but an early one that comes to mind is hiding from the teachers at recess and making ( in retrospect terrible) excuses for why I wasn’t playing with anyone.
    I don?t like being around or interacting with other people, this is my personality. I am a jerk - I don?t mean to be, but whenever I speak up I say something rude. It?s just the way that I am. Don?t bother me.

    Three years old. At night I would imagine that clothes hanging on the closet doorknob in the hallway was a goblin and freak out asking my parents to turn the lights on.

    My first significant panic attack January 28, 1989 - it was after my mother's hospitalization for mental health issues.
