The hilarious cartoonist and author shares about the exhaustion of anxiety, her tongue going numb, and the importance of exercise and dance for mental health.
Hilary is awesome!!
I find it so interesting learning about people with anxiety and panic attacks who feel less anxious in social situations. It's the opposite of myself, but I totally get it. I can see how being surrounded by others might make it harder to get all caught up in one's own inner talk. I have a good friend like that and I had always thought she was extroverted because she was always going to parties and concerts, nearly every night. I've since learned that it was how she dealt with her anxiety.
Thanks for this great interview, and for this essential Substack.
Currently feeling anxious!!!!!
Good stuff. Always important to share people’s experiences with anxiety and panic attacks. It normalizes it and also provided helpful tips on how others manage
