Here are 18 of the most relatable struggles of growing up with strict parents. Enjoy.

  • You were always the first one who had to leave a party.
  • Asking permission for a sleepover at your friend’s house took 37 hours of mental preparation, a detailed powerpoint presentation of your friend’s family tree, and a signed contract in your blood saying you wouldn’t drink and would be in bed by 10 pm.
  • You would practice hours in front of the mirror to ask you´re parent for permission to go anywhere, and practicing answers to the questions you know they are going to ask
  • You always had to wait until they were in a good mood before asking for anything
  • You would ask your parents once, and only once, if you could hang out at someone’s house. You never understood why your friends would think that “asking them again” would make any difference.
  • You always had to choose between going out Friday or Saturday because you know that your parent would never agree to both
  • You understand THE PURE, UNADULTERATED PANIC that channels through your veins when your idiot friends change the plans 10 times and you have to keep reexplaining to your parents what you’re doing.
  • You either lie(d) all the time or tell the truth no matter what. There is no in between.
  • You never cursed until you got to college
  • You never had “the talk” with your parents. They probably left a book by your bed, that explained everything, and hope you understood it
  • Family dinner conversations always revolving around grades and class schedules, and never about your social or love life - as far as they are concerned, you don’t have any.
  • To this day you still can’t dressed without being concerned about what you´re parents might think. All through high school, there was an eternal war about whether that shirt was too short, or if my black chunky sweater was too revealing.
  • You always changed the channel if you’re parent walked in while you were watching a movie where there was a slight chance that the characters might kiss
  • Watching a movie with your parents. There is a sex scene. They skip it because they don’t think you can handle it. Even though you are 19-years-old.
  • You’ve spent years dreaming of rebellion in the form of making spontaneous plans or wearing flip-flops to the airport.
  • Your impulse reaction to hearing your friends say they had sleepovers with their significant others in open-mouthed shock.
  • If you miss one phone call, your parents suddenly assume you’re smoking “that marijuana” with “that one friend of yours” they KNEW was going to be a bad influence.
  • You probably shared the same first name as at least 4-5 other people in your classes growing up.

See you soon.

ANXIETY AS A WHOLE

Feeling anxious every once in a while, is very normal. And anxiety disorder is different though. They are a group of mental illnesses, and the distress they cause can keep you from carrying on with your life normally. For people who have an anxiety disorder, worry and fear are constant and overwhelming, and can be disabling. But with the right treatment, people often learn how to control and contain their anxiety. There are different types of anxiety. They main groups of anxiety are:

  • Panic disorder. You feel terror that strikes at random. During a panic attack, you may also sweat, have chest pain, and feel palpitations(unusually strong or irregular heartbeats). Sometimes you may feel like you’re choking or having a heart attack.
  • Social anxiety disorder. Also called social phobia, this is when you feel overwhelming worry and self-consciousness about everyday social situations. You fixate about others judging you or on being embarrassed or ridiculed.
  • Specific phobias. You feel intense fear of a specific object or situation, such as heights or flying. The fear goes beyond what’s appropriate and may cause you to avoid ordinary situations.
  • Generalized anxiety disorder. You feel excessive, unrealistic worry and tension with little or no reason.

More people than we know, suffers from anxiety. It is now a very common mental illness, which is scary to think about. Of these 4 main groups of anxiety you can have different “branches”. For an example, you can have an depression with a branch of anxiety called unrest. So these are just the four main categories, but there are an infinity of anxiety “ branches. “

Anxiety has now become way safer to talk about, compared to earlier on. Nowadays everyone have some type of anxiety, which again, is settling to think about but also worrying. It raises many questions such as; why do so many people in the 21st century suffer from anxiety, and what do out society to do help it?

That are both topics we are going to discuss later on.

On this graph, you can see how much the anxiety rate has gone up in the us. It is crazy to think about how in a decade we went from an average of 25.000 people who suffered from anxiety, to over 200.000. I am not very good a math. But I know that is now good.

Some of the reasons to anxiety could be due to all the stress and expectations that are being put on us at school. Or the sky high beauty standards that are being portrayed on social media.

Some of the most common symptoms of anxiety is:

  • Panic, fear, and uneasiness
  • Sleep problems
  • Not being able to stay calm and still
  • Cold, sweaty, numb or tingling hands or feet
  • Shortness of breath
  • Heart palpitations
  • Dry mouth
  • Nausea
  • Tense muscles
  • Dizziness

This is just an introduction to anxiety as a whole. There are going to be a lot more posts following up on this one, and different conspiracy’s as of to why we suffer so badly form anxiety.

See you soon.
