it is possible to harness the anxiety and make it work for you, sometimes
an example is a former australian prime minister who was an excellent public speaker and debater in parliament
he sweated so severly before and during speeches that his suit had to always be sent to the dry cleaners afterwards,soaked in sweat . no body could have realised this however, he was so good
I agree, I don't know to what extent any of these people suffered, but if I remember Valium was at one time a drug of choice for celebraties with anxiety. Don't quote me on that lol.
I think the ones that really stick out in my mind are the bipolars and there were a lot but that is a whole different diagnosis.
Just trivia but interesting.
Wow, I can say I'm in company with Johnny Depp.
I always remember watching Oprah years ago and she had on one of the guys from New Kids on the Block. This was way before I suffered anxiety. I remember watching him talk about anxiety and you could see from watching him how bad his illness was he was literally shaking in his seat. I remember feeling so sorry for this guy and what his life must be like well lucky me now I know exactly what it's like.
I wonder if with their careers and being so busy with the actors they can go off and be someone else, I just wonder if that helps their anxiety?
You are so right, anxiety can affect everyone of any walk of life.
I remember the New Kids on the Block on Oprah.
Just makes you understand that anyone can have a mental health issue.
Thanks, you are all the best.
Your right everyone that suffers from anxiety is equal, their pain is as hard for them as famous people.
I think these lists are to show you that the disease is not only our disease but everyones, it has no boundaries on whom it is bestowed.
I have sang the" why me woes?" to my therapist when I was first dx with depression and my therapist said, why not you?
I had no answer, he was right.
