    This emoji is called "Mild Panic" and was created by a Twitter user (shown in the original screenshot). It eventually was screenshotted and posted to Reddit where it got to the top of r/Me_IRL and a few other subreddits it fits in. As an Autistic, I can relate to this greatly. Can anybody else?[​IMG]
    Just everything about it is relatable. In fact, I think it should be added to the Forum's own emote system. There is even a Change.org petition to make this emoji go on IOS and maybe even have its own Android, Google, and Discord versions. I feel this emoji, like, 98.57% of the time.

    No.
    Not at all.

    This bulgy eyed smiley with a big drop of sweat(?) says nothing like
    "Mild Panic" to me. If it says anything, it says.....the creature's shoes
    are too tight and it's made the mistake of standing under a drip.

    I think the smile is too relaxed. Mild panic smiles are definitely a little squiggly

    I love it!! It's like a person panicking who is still in the part where they're pretending everything is fine.

    If we want to be picky, I don't think "mild panic" makes sense, being a contradiction in terms, but if we're not being picky, I would use that emoji all the time!

    This emoji is just confusing... crying but also happy? I can't really relate to it - perhaps if it had a neutral expression I might. My dominant emotion is neutral through to anxious, occasionally happy but not both happy and crying. Panic, even mild panic, doesn't make me either happy or cry, just anxious.

    It looks like it should be called pshew.
    I see it as someone who is having a sigh of relief and happy that whatever didn't happen.

    It looks to me like someone who is desperately hoping you don't notice that they just missed the toilet! :eek:

    No. I've tried but can't see panic in that emoji.

    I think the mouth might be wrong.
    ...and the rain :)

    ... or the relief that comes with finally passing it after straining for a good two hours.. pain, relief and joy.

    No. Panic does not come to mind on seeing that.

    A mixture of pleasure and perhaps, as Progester says: relief from ardious work.

    Blue blob.

    Rather large for a bead of sweat.
    Covering a considerable area of face.

    Big drip of rain?

    Just shown emoji to daughter (early 20s)

    She said "anxious" and then pulled a face at me to show something like @Fino described.
    The beginning, pretending it's still fine, trying to smile through it?

    Maybe it's because I´m a weeaboo, but to me that emoji says "Well, this is awkward."

    It doesn't say panic to me. Mild or otherwise.

    It looks like a smiley face with a rain drop on its head.

    And now the song won't leave my head alone - just before bedtime too :mad::mad::mad:

    Raindrops are falling on my head
    And just like the guy whose feet are too big for his bed
    Nothing seems to fit
    Those raindrops are falling on my head, they keep falling .......

    :) ... You just had to, didn't you?
    How easily my brain has read those lyrics and is singing that song (it's nearly midnight)
    I can almost smell the seventies too !

    Interesting. Does not quite fit the name in my opinion. Also, I never panic 'mildly'. All emotions are binary for me, and quite strong. Make us one for 'major panic', and I would buy it for a dollar. ;)

    Edit: grammer
