    Hello so I saw this article and I have been wondering something sort of related to it. But about fidget spinners. I have anxiety/ panic attacks and sometimes I worry about random things and one of them today is my fidget spinner. I know that it can help with things like anxiety and ADHD. But actually I got one when they were popular in my school probably three years ago to play with, and was not aware of them before then. And now I have realized I’ve never tried to see if it is helpful for my anxiety at all. I’ve been wondering, if it turns out not to help me as a tool, since that’s what it’s apparently actually supposed to be, do I have to get rid of it? It was expensive and I don’t see any reason not to learn some tricks or something to make sure I get my money’s worth. (Even though it’s not cool anymore I still like it, I never cared about being cool. In fact a great deal of things I like are much older even though I am a teenager, so the fidget spinner is part of my way of embracing my generation I guess.) Now that I’ve asked this question it almost seems like a silly thing to worry about but I thought I might as well get a for sure answer so I can stop thinking about it.
