Alec Baynes lives with social anxiety and mild Asperger’s Syndrome. For more than twenty years, he believed it to be exclusive to himself and, aside from some minor medication, refused to seek help. On the verge of suicide at age 21, he made the decision to seek help from therapists. He is still alive today. Alec still battles anxiety, but since 2018, he has learned that anxiety is completely okay to have. Join Alec as he discusses his experiences with anxiety, how he manages it, and why it’s okay to be anxious.
