Anxiety is the worry about everyday situations. Everyone has anxiety every once and a while over bills, family issues, and arguments with a spouse.
However, having an Anxiety Disorder causes those afflicted to cultivate reasons to worry in their mind. Anxiety never goes away and is often unwarranted, making the person suffering feel as though they are worthless and that their life is always on the brink of disaster.
Anxiety Disorders can manifest in many ways. Here are a few that are most common:
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)`
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
The symptoms of an Anxiety Disorder are both emotional and physical-which makes this condition so debilitating.
Here are the most common symptoms:
Expecting the Worst-Case Scenario
Shortness of Breath
Feeling Tense Indefinitely
Of course, as with every form of therapy, the person needs to work at allowing themselves to get better, but there is an abundance of resources to help you come to terms with your anxiety and eradicate it from your life.
Counseling is available for those who want to talk about what’s bothering them, with someone who is trained in guiding you back toward the person you want to be.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is another option. In this form of therapy, a trained mental health professional will guide you through exercises that will help you calm, focus on what’s going on, and build the confidence to help you get your life back on track.
