Anxiety Disorders

I am very interested in Mental Health and believe the more we talk about it, the more people suffering will seek help and lose the stigma attached to it.

I promised a series of blog posts dedicated to the subject and I’m starting off with Anxiety Disorders.

  • Anxiety disorders: People with anxiety disorders respond to certain objects or situations with fear and dread, as well as with physical signs of anxiety or nervousness, such as a rapid heartbeat and sweating. An anxiety disorder is diagnosed if the person’s response is not appropriate for the situation, if the person cannot control the response, or if the anxiety interferes with normal functioning. Anxiety disorders include generalized anxiety disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, and specific phobias.

Now, a lot of people have phobias, but i’m told as long as it isn’t debilitating, but please don’t take my word for it, if you think you have a problem, see a mental health professional.

I understand how hard coping with any of these conditions is, I live with PTSD.

At times it can be very debilitating, I don’t go outside without ear-buds, because loud noises can set off a panic attack and when I’m going anywhere I can take my dog, I do so that I know when someone is coming up behind me while my ear-buds are in.

That is just one example of how I have modified my life to deal with my condition.

You can live a fulfilling life when you have these conditions.

If you think you may have any Mental Health condition, Please seek help.

    Great post. I suffer from depression, anxiety, PTSD, ADHD, and BPD along with several invisible chronic diseases and pain. I look forward to following your blog.
    Yes, people really need to seek help, as it is very helpful. I do know, because I do it. I do extensive outpatient therapy 3 times a week.
    Having these conditions is nothing to be ashamed of, they are no different than having a problem with any other part of your body. I wish more people could understand that and remove that stigma most people attach to mental illnesses. Take care and have a great day.:)
    Peace,
    Tammy:)
