  1. Hi,

    I hope all is well with you. Healthline just published an infographic detailing the physical and social effects of anxiety. This is an interactive chart allowing the reader to pick the side effect they want to learn more about.

    You can see the overview of the report here:

    Our users have found our guide very useful and I thought it would be a great resource for your page:

    I would appreciate it if you could review our request and consider adding this visual representation of the effects of anxiety to your site or sharing it on your social media feeds.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    All the best,

    • Thank you so much, Nicole. We will be adding this to the Resources page tonight. This will be a huge help to our storytellers and readers as well. We’ll also share the link in all of our social media outlets.

      Thanks for helping us help others. We greatly appreciate it.


    • Sadly, we’ve since disbanded. Our group was juggling far too much. We decided it was for the best. We know this was a very healing place while it lasted, though. This place will likely always stand for that reason.
