45 Memes You Might Relate to If You're Anxious AF


Memes. In just a few short words and a funny picture, they can often perfectly describe what life with anxiety is really like. While there’s nothing funny about struggling with some of the worst symptoms of anxiety (overthinking, panic attacks and dissociation anyone?), sometimes a little self-aware humor can go a long way in making you feel less alone.

It’s true that memes can’t “cure” anxiety (we wish!), but sometimes they can bring a smile to your face when you’re struggling.

If you are anxious AF, this one’s for you:
