ANXIETY SUCKS, AM I RIGHT?
Anxiety looks and feels different to everyone. It can be triggered by normal activities, social situations, or by phobias. When treating anxiety, I would look at the severity of the symptoms, the different areas of your life that are impacted, and the precipitating events or triggers. From there, we are able to develop an appropriate and individualized treatment plan to manage these symptoms.
Some examples of settings or circumstances that may trigger anxiety:
Presenting a project at school
Starting a new job
Intimacy with a new partner
Being in closed spaces or the perception of being trapped
Fear of dying or getting severely ill
Being left by a loved one
Reconnect to your spiritual beliefs through prayer or meditation
Attend a local support group
Watch tv or listen to music for a positive distraction
Talk to someone you trustHome
