Woman live tweets IBM execs discussing why they don’t hire women, tries not to throw up

Toronto-based editor Lyndsay Kirkham has started a firestorm this week after overhearing what was apparently an incredibly sexist conversation between IBM executives at lunch — and live-tweeting it.

Unaware that they were transmitting sexist nonsense to cyberspace, the IBM executives openly discussed “why they don’t hire women.” If you take Kirkham’s account at its word, it actually gets way worse.

Anxiety & Helping Someone Cope. 
I didn’t want to make it overwhelming or too long remember, so I kept it to the main points that benefit me greatly when I’m experiencing an attack.
40 million of Americans alone suffer with anxiety; it’s a horrid feeling when you know someone just wants to help you but you cannot even construct a simple sentence at the time, so please share this in hope that it benefits even just 1 person. Muchos love. 

to add, some people don’t want to admit they’re having an attack while going through it or are trying to distract themselves and not focus on it, so it’s nice if you just act casual and not all overly concerned or panicky over that person, that can just make them feel even worse

it always helps me feel better when someone just kinda chats casually to me, not acknowledging my anxiety and being patient if im slow to respond or barely respond at the moment

(i tend to say ‘yeah im okay/fine/whatever’ if someone asks me ‘whats wrong’ even if im clearly not okay)

This is good advice

… I have never heard of anxiety attacks before, I think I have experienced them… this is really helpful.
