10 Things people don’t realize about you, when you have high Functioning Anxiety

We all feel a little anxious whenever a tensed situation comes up in life. Whether we are going through a particularly busy schedule, or have an exam or interview lined up, some level of anxiety actually helps us focus more on the task at hand. But, the situation becomes problematic if that level of anxiety gets out of control and we start feeling nervous and tensed for everything in life.

A note of caution in the starting; we are not professional psychologists who are trying to tell you that you have a high functioning anxiety, which needs to be treated as soon as possible. Though, if you feel that you are not able to handle it, we highly suggest that you take professional help.


Here, we are trying to tell everybody (people with or without anxiety) what it feels to be anxious most of the times. People jump to conclusions that an anxious person has become lazy, indecisive and passive, but they fail to understand that it is anxiety which is making them do all sorts of things that they never did. We are here to tell you that you are not alone and that you are understood, and exactly for that purpose, we are listing out 10 things that most people don’t understand about people with anxiety. You may want to read this if you yourself have anxiety or have someone around you who suffers from this problem.

1 Falling Asleep Late, and waking up early

One of the first things that come up as a problem in people with anxiety is that their sleep cycle gets disturbed. They just twist and turn in bed till the wee hours of the morning because their thoughts are not in their control, and when they do fall asleep, they tend to wake up as soon as the alarm goes off. And after that, no matter what they do, they just don’t feel like sleeping again even if they are hell tired.
