Racing heart. Shortness of breath. Chest pains. Being so scared that you want to run away but have no idea where you'd go. These are some of the things that those with Generalized Anxiety Disorder suffer.
I know, because I am one.
I experienced my first panic attack at the age of eight years old. It was shortly after finding my beloved uncle dead when my grandmother asked me to wake him for breakfast. I don't know what switch flipped inside of me that turned that horrific incident Into a lifelong struggle. At times over the years I've shared my fear, and other times, not. I'd love to tell you that I'm the only person I know who experiences this. Truth: There are approximately 6.8 million of us In the U.S. alone.
So what can we do about it, stop worrying?
Easier said than done, but ...
I'm not a psychologist, nor do I play one on TV, lol, but I've learned much over the years regarding coping techniques and overcoming my fear, much of it from professionals. Worrying delays the process of healing and is almost always on equal footing with overthinking. I'm a notorious over thinker, and you know what? I wouldn't change the journey that anxiety and I have traveled. Although the physical symptoms are uncomfortable, anxiety has taught me to slow down my thinking and apply rationale. When I do this, I hear solutions. You may be able to do this alone or your doctor may deem medication necessary. My course of treatment helps my body and mind to slow down, enough so that I can rationally think. I've come to realize my outer circumstances don't have to control my inner peace. It's a challenge, I know, but anxiety sufferers are some the the strongest people I know. I'm a warrior living my truth and chasing my dreams, and I want you to know if you struggle, you're a WARRIOR too!
