Dealing with anxiety really sucks. It can affect your job, your relationships, and every other aspect of your life in negative ways. But one way to deal with the ailment is to try to laugh at it, at least every once in a while.
As the old saying goes, laughter is the best medicine.
At the very least, these tweets will remind you that you are not alone in your struggle.
