I do not tell many people this but I have anxiety attacks. I get anxiety attacks when I’m running late, see clowns, or am around a huge group of people. This is also why I’m anti-social. I can not be around big groups of random people without me breathing heavy or getting fidgety.
I’ve only gone to four high school football games, and those get me anxious. I took my brother to a game once just so I wouldn’t freak out and lose it. He was a life saver, the three other times, twice I have been with some of my baseball buddies, who I consider brothers, so I do not freak out. Being around people I know and consider family is the only way I do not get the attacks. This is also a reason I do not go to dances. I do not go because I do not have dates but because I am stuck with people I do not know and chances are I would have an anxiety attack. So next time I tell you that I’m anti-social just realize I do not want to have an anxiety attack, Strangely enough I do not get anxiety attacks at baseball games when I go alone. I think it is just because I see baseball as my home and my nirvana. I love baseball and I guess I’m at peace with it.
Another unique thing, my favorite villain of all time is The Joker, a clown, and I do not worry about being late if I’m with someone I treasure. Maybe if I found someone to treasure, I would stop having anxiety attacks.
