|anxiety holder (n., v., adj.)|
Flag by localhazard
An anxiety holder is a type of symptom holder headmate which holds onto anxiety, often to prevent other headmates from feeling that anxiety. This may be anxiety about specific events, day-to-day anxiety, or even anxiety about the system itself.
These headmates are most common in systems with comorbid anxiety disorders, but an anxiety disorder is not required to have an anxiety holder.
