Background: Noah’s always had anxiety, there wasn’t a time in his life where he wouldn’t get nervous before going to an event or just out in general. It seemed to get worse with age. Each school day got harder and it was only worse after school or in the weekend. He wasn’t dealing with it at all. He was managing, just but he couldn’t stop the constant panic attacks. They didn’t seem to ever go away which got him very depressed. So depressed he didn’t even want to try going out anymore so, when he was 17, he moved himself into his own apartment and didn’t get out of it whatsoever, he just sat and went on his computer or watched tv, or read a book. He wasn’t interested in the outside world. Being shy didn’t help him at all. He had anxiety with all sorts of things, meeting new people, hell even talking to the little amount of friends he had scared him. After his parents found out what was happening they decided that they’d better put him into care for help for his anxiety.
Childhood: There was nothing wrong with Noah’s childhood. It was just his anxiety always got in the way. He couldn’t necessarily do things all that involved being outside of his house. He had friends but he was always too scared to go over to their houses in case something happened to him while he was there or something happened to his family. Noah was definitely more than a worry wart. He’d constantly mull over it all in his head and work himself up for nothing. His grades never slipped, because he would just sit at home and do his homework and if he listened in class, it would be distracting for him. That was one of the only things he loved to do, learn. He always wanted to learn new things. Even though he stopped school at 16, but that was purely because he couldn’t go anymore. His parents didn’t decide to get him help because they just thought he was a bad child and nobody picked up on it at his school.
Personality: Noah is very shy. It takes a lot for him to open up to everyone. He really is one to keep to himself out of all of the patients in the hospital. He still loves to learn and do all the things he did in his apartment. He doesn’t even mind the hospital as long as he stays in his room all the time. No matter how many times his best friend, Samantha tries to get him to leave his room, he never actually does. She has been the only person in the hospital that he could really talk to without stuttering or panicking. It’s still a constant battle for Noah, he has panic attacks a lot at the hospital, especially with all of the drama that goes on.
