Whether you just a feel a bit anxious from time to time, or you’re so plagued by panic you would only leave your house if it was on fire, there’s something here for you.

Designed as a place where anxious brains can come together to hear and be heard, this blog focuses on the importance of our experiences, the power of our voices and the support of our community.

Take a peek around and keep coming back as this blog becomes a resource where questions can be answered to the best of my, or any other reader’s knowledge, where struggles and triumphs can both be expressed and most importantly where we can identify with other people going through life with a similar struggle.  Interested?

I feel I should clarify at this point that the only area of expertise I have in the field of anxiety and panic attacks is what it’s like to live with them, but I feel that can be the exact kind of expert people sometimes need.  There’s certainly no shortage of expert information on the Internet, which is helpful, but at the end of the day, hearing about my synapses, neurotransmitters and faulty thought processes wasn’t exactly getting me out the door and living my life.  I identify much more with other people’s stories, which are often so similar to my own, and especially being reminded that it can get better.




Blog Creator


My Anxious Brain was founded by Shauna Hyde, a textbook definition Type A personality and certifiable anxious brain.  I’ve had symptoms of anxiety most of my life but it didn’t become a daily struggle until about six years ago when the agoraphobia and panic attacks took hold and didn’t let go.  I’ve been through many ups and downs, steps forward and steps back and I don’t even come close to having all the answers, but I want to encourage and inspire my fellow anxious brains through my story, and of course occasionally wallow in a little mutually understood misery for what it is to live with anxiety.


With all that said, please take some time, read for a bit, and come back often.

I look forward to getting to know you!
