Anxiety Treatment

You’ve been battling anxiety for a long time. Fighting against it, thinking about it, and trying to escape suffocating fear and worry. You feel stuck. In fact, sometimes you’re nearly paralyzed by your anxiety. Every anxious thought leads to another anxious thoughts.  

Maybe, you’ve had physical reactions to your anxiety such as dizziness, nausea, headaches, or shortness of breath during a panic attack.

You’ve tried different things to manage your anxiety. Books about anxiety, conversations with friends, and Youtube videos teaching you breathing techniques. But nothing seems to help, at least not for long. Perhaps, your doctor has even prescribed anxiety medication for you.

The bottom line is that you’re sick of feeling anxious.  Anxiety has controlled your thoughts, emotions, and actions for too long.

Anxiety symptoms

Many things can contribute to your anxiety. Your past and present can cause you to be anxious. So can your personality. In fact, some people are just predisposed to worrying. Everyone experiences anxiety differently, but some of the common symptoms of anxiety include:

  • Constant worry
  • Racing thoughts
  • Fatigue/ sleep problems/ lack of sleep
  • Double or triple checking that you’ve done something “right”
  • Not eating enough or eating too much
  • Panic, fear, and uneasiness
  • Avoiding places, things or people
  • Muscle tension
  • Headaches
  • Feeling agitated
  • Restlessness
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Irritability

In small doses, anxiety can be a good thing

The purpose of anxiety is to motivate us to act.  For example, If we’re outside on a hike and a storm is rolling in, anxiety motivates us to hurry back to safety before the storm arrives.  Or, a college student who is a little bit anxious is more likely to study for a test than one who has zero concern about their performance.

In general, anxiety can be your brain or body sending you a message.  Many successful adults experience what we call “high functioning anxiety.” Their worries have actually helped them become cautious, hardworking individuals.

But, sometimes anxiety can get out of control. It can start to impact multiple areas of your life or even become so extreme that it paralyzes you and prevents you from taking action.  It can keep you from feeling happy and being able to live life to the fullest. If this sounds like what you are experiencing, you may have a diagnosable anxiety disorder.

Do I have an anxiety disorder?

You’ve found yourself constantly worrying, and you realized that you are avoiding things you used to enjoy out of fear. Therefore, you may be wondering if you have an anxiety disorder.  The truth is that anxiety disorders are actually very common.

In fact, according to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, anxiety disorders are more common than any other type of mental illness.

Anxiety disorders can come in many different shapes and forms. 

Types of Anxiety Disorders:

The most common types of anxiety disorders include:

  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder
  • Panic Disorder
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Phobias
  • Social Anxiety Disorder

*It’s also worth noting that Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) used to be considered an anxiety disorder. But it is now considered a “trauma-and stressor-related disorder” in the newest version of our diagnostic manual.
