This is a short and informative Youtube video that tells about anxiety disorders. I love how Hank has explained it so well. He kind of reminds me of Stephen Hawking… But that’s beside the point. See the objectivity of how he presents anxiety disorders, the symptoms and the different kinds? The crash course is a good way to present to the general public that mental disorders are just like any illnesses. They’re just as real, and just as crippling, if not treated properly. You don’t get them because you just wanted attention or because anything you caused to yourself.
I hope that after watching this, viewers become more sensitive to how they address their friends who have “weird” tendencies. They aren’t sick – so stop making a joke out of it!
This video is another of the many proofs that anxiety can be biological as well as cognitive, so it doesn’t mean that having anxiety signifies weakness as a human being. Remember, you are not alone!
