Anxiety is something I continually have to deal with. Its symptoms aren’t always obvious, but it’s something we probably deal with more than we think, we just don’t recognise the signs.
We may also not think we’re prone to anxiety, but dealing with issues that sometimes feel out of control and more than we can handle, can bring about anxiety in those of us who aren’t prone, or have never dealt with anxiety at all.
It is important to recognise the signs. It’s the feeling you get in the pit of your stomach, the Adrenalin rush you get when a particular thought comes into your head that makes you feel stressed. Anxiety not only makes us feel nervous, but living with anxious thoughts all the time, can make us ill as well.
Anxiety can make us feel panicky over issues we wouldn’t normally feel panicky about, but consciously we’re struggling to deal with. If you think you’re dealing with anxiety, stand back and think about what’s causing your anxiety.
If you’re struggling to deal with anxiety, I would suggest try talking to someone with whom you can trust and whom you feel will understand. That always helps.
