Does anyone else have to deal with people directing their anger at you because they cannot cope with your anxiety when it is bad?
I seem to spend my life either apologising for my anxiety or facing the brunt of people who are angry at me because I am not coping or struggling which ironically makes my anxiety much worse.
I do not understand why we live in a society that tolerates this sort of behaviour towards an illness.
I am a good person, not a bad person, why must I go through life facing this just because I am ill?
It makes me hate people so much sometimes and the world to me feels like a cruel and vicious place, I am starting to turn from a sensitive caring guy into someone who feels like I must look after number 1 to survive because of this hostility.
I do not want to be that person but I must also survive.
If I was physically ill this behaviour would never be acceptable but because it is a mental illness people can use the excuse that they don't understand or that they are frustrated.
Why does there inability to have empathy or ignorance make this acceptable?
Any thoughts on this would be good.
Anyone else have these problems?
