12 Comics That Are Too Relatable If You Live With Anxiety
Whether it’s writing, painting, singing or drawing, creative outlets can be important to many people living with anxiety. When you make art about your anxiety, not only does it let others know they aren’t alone in their experiences — it also can get (at the very least) some of the anxious energy out of your head.
To highlight some amazing artists who draw about mental health, we put together some of our favorite comics you might be able to relate to if you live with anxiety. Some might make you laugh, some may hit too close to home — but we’re sure at least a few will resonate with you.

There's a difference between being #introverted, being #shy, and being #anxious. They are NOT synonymous; however, it's been shown that these traits often overlap. Being introverted means that you feel drained after social interaction. Being shy means that you find social interaction embarrassing. Having #socialanxiety feels more like panic. What about you? Are you introverted, shy, or anxious? Or all three? (I'm an #introvert with occasional #anxiety, but not usually shy.)
