Tolkien was right when she wrote the quote, “ It’s a dangerous business going out your front door.” There are so many uncertainties in the world and not knowing if you are safe to leave your house would be awful but so many people can’t do it in different areas either because they have overactive imaginations, are on the run, or because they live in an unsafe area. There are also so many wide varieties of ways people can’t leave their house. This could even be considered one of the most upsetting or contradictory things to think about because there are always two sides to any scale but these are real things that happen to people at any given time in their
College is Stressful College, what an exciting yet stressful experience! A higher education can provide opportunities in the job market as competition becomes increasingly difficult. Many college students experience significant stress maintaining balance between college, work, and family. This constant balancing act often creates a feeling of overwhelm.

In order to pull myself out of the warm embrace of my bed every morning, I require grit: perseverance, passion, and mental strength. To begin, I must explain that I have major depressive disorder, a disorder in which I am not able to see the point of doing things and be a functioning member of society, and getting out of bed everyday is by far my biggest obstacle. More specifically, days that I am forced to pry myself out of bed and attend class are the worst, but I persevere and accomplish the task every time I can; I tell myself “you can do this”. Consequently, I am granted the power of perseverance and have an ability to keep going, even when I doubt that I can. Secondly, my burning passion for a few things helps me keep afloat.
I think Night should stay on Mrs. Avila’s book report list because this is a book that more students need to read because Elie Wiesel and other holocaust survivor’s stories should be remembered so history won’t repeat itself. I didn’t like that Night left me with many questions, like did Eliezer ever completely restore his faith in God, what happened to his leg after undergoing an operation, why wasn’t his sisters and mother mentioned ever again, I also wanted to know if Eliezer ever has a bright light in the future. If you believe the world is all sunshine’s and rainbows, your whole view on life is about to change. Night opened my eyes, the world is not perfect. There is evil people in this world.

Body: Comparison of Social Anxiety and Panic Anxiety Disorder: People who suffer from Social Anxiety Disorder and Panic Anxiety Disorder are both naturally depressed. The American Psychiatric Association states the causes of anxiety disorders are currently unknown but likely involve a combination of factors including genetic, environmental, psychological and developmental(2015). Anxiety disorders can run in families, suggesting that a combination of genes and environmental stresses can produce the disorders. Anxiety disorders are the most common of mental disorders and affect more than 25 million Americans(APA, 2015).To escape the constant anxiety, many people with anxiety (both panic and social anxiety people) result to using the anxiety reducers: alcohol and substance/drug abuse.

Generalized Anxiety Disorder People suffering from generalized anxiety disorder suffer from a number of symptoms, (Comer, 2014) explains they may feel “restless, keyed up, or on edge; tire easily; have difficulty concentrating; suffer from muscle tension; and have sleep problems” (p.98). These symptoms usually last for weeks, and have to be of such intensity, that it disrupts daily activities. An unsubstantiated fear of losing a job, can cripple a usually productive employee to the point that they are afraid to aggressively preform their task, and it therefore reduces their activities to safe, barely minimum requirements, and stifles creativity. Anxiety can also disrupt family life, by not traveling, or taking vacations, because of the fear of tragedy striking, even though there is no risk of danger.
