I have anxiety, so I instantly expect terrible things. Whenever I open my notifications or try to type out a disagreement my heart races and my head hurts. I've even gone long periods of time avoiding my notifications or messages just to keep away that feeling. But GAG is basically the only thing I have to do all day besides school, so I can't stay away forever. Anyone else feel nervous or fearfulw hen opening up an argument?
I still do at times. This is why I always go anonymous. When I first started using GAG, I tried never posting anything anonymously as most people find it anons cowards (even if the question itself is genuine).
But now I stopped caring of what other thinks of me and post everything anonymously (only exception is when the asker disallows anons) and do what makes me happy. My anxiety still causes me to fear opening my notifications but it isn't as bad as when I first start using GAG. Anonimity helps out my anxiety a whole lot.
This is the entire reason why I use anonymous. I wish people would stop complaining about the anonymous feature. There would be trolls regardless if it existed or not.
Nope. I tend to have plenty of notifications of arguments I have started or retards commenting with some crap. I don't mind giving my piece. But I've consistently had a lot of them and realized that I was being stupid because I was trying to change people's OPINIONS.
I can't do that and even if I could, I'm not going about it the right way. So I tend not to say anything about someone's opinion... unless if I consider it to be absolutely fucktarded. And if the majority of opinions are like that on the question... I usually don't say anything to people, but give it in my answer.
no, I'm afraid of many things but GAG notifications are the opposite... I'm usually very happy when seeing them. Unless I said something stupid and I know I'll get hate for it or was arguing with someone
I don't experience that kind of anxiety but it might be because I've been on here for so long and have become used to people not liking things I say sometimes and being attacked. I think a large reason for feeling anxiety is because in real life we aren't used to people openly disagreeing with us and becoming aggressive about it.
Oh wow. I have received plenty of hateful messages and comments on my opinions, but it never had such an impact on me. I actually like getting notifications and messages. I'm addicted to that orange thingy. I'm sorry you feel that way, that ain't healthy :/
No... I sometimes don't read them though because I know I have obviously gone against the opinion of the majority of people here and others are going to bash me but I couldn't care less what most people on here think... You shouldn't care either.
