If so, how do you cope with it? I'm not speaking of treatments, but ways in which you handle any given situation where your anxiety peaks. Whether it be PTSD or SAD, in what ways do you react to anxiety? For me, I completely withdraw inside myself, don't talk, and temporarily, "lose" my emotions. I feel safe when my emotions vanish; I feel like less of a target. I don't generally have any known nervous habits associated with my GAD/SAD, but there's probably something unconscious I do.
