Lots of people avoid eye contact. I hope there's more to it than that to make you say you need medication. You could have left off the first sentence and had a perfectly valid FML.
Some people really do need meds. My parents actually ended up taking me to the hospital twice because of my anxiety. I'd start freaking out really bad. And usually I felt better at school but eventually it got so bad that I was super nervous at school too. I definitely needed meds at that point. The meds help a lot but I still have anxiety, although its definitely better than before. Its not a huge problem but I'm always worried that will happen to me. I try avoiding eye contact too sometimes and when I get anxiety I know I probably look a bit odd. But that only makes me more nervous, thinking about how I probably look suspicious.
I hope you get the meds you need and that they'll work for you. Good luck OP.
Sometimes medication isn't the best option. Side effects can cause new problems, plus no one wants to be dependent on a pill to function properly in society. In cases like this it might be worth looking into some counseling before going straight for the drugs option
If you aren't taking anything off the shelf or looking like you're actually shopping I can kind of see why they might think that though.
Of course, a police pat down is a sure cure for anxiety. Do you know where the cop's hands have been? You need to cover yourself in hand sanitizer and then shower until you get the germs off!
OCD is a mental disorder that falls under the anxiety umbrella. I know this because my little brother has severe OCD. He is on anti-anxiety medication because when his OCD thoughts and behavior act up, he will even tell you the first thing he feels is anxious and then that leads into other emotions like anger and frustration. Then he acts out in a way that anyone could tell its really anxiety.
#37, Yeah, but who says where the cop's gloves have been? Are they fancy-pants cops who open a new, sterile pair of gloves each time, or normal ones who pat you down with the same mitts they recently used to perform a cavity search on a hobo? Now, I'm starting to get anxious.
19- In your logic you could be cavity searched because you look suspicious. The law suit is on the grounds of harassment. Because of situations like this companies are instructed to let the person leave and check the security tapes. Said person technically has not shoplifted until they leave the store. At that point they are off store property and running them down would be grounds for assault. Not saying this is right by any means but sadly it's how things work these days.
Anti-anxiety meds f*** you up. I wouldn't suggest taking them
