Anxiety can be just as debilitating as depression.
Most people think of depression on the lower end of things. Things like the feeling of sadness, hopelessness, finding no joy in things that you once took pleasure in, not wanting to get out of bed, etc.
On the higher end of depression is anxiety. The symptoms of anxiety can include: excessive worry, restlessness, problems focusing, feelings of fear, and dread or avoiding everyday activities.
Anxiety can also show itself in physical symptoms, such as: frequent sleep problems, rapid heartbeat, dizziness, and shortness of breath.
If anxiety is left unchecked, it can interfere with job performance, schoolwork and relationships. Anxiety can also lead to Panic Attacks and Phobias if untreated.
If you recognize yourself in the symptoms I’ve listed above, I strongly urge you to seek help.
HERE is an article I found on ways to reduce your anxiety.
HERE you will find my Mental Health Help Page that will list several helpful links to seek help.
*An added note: What I write here is based on personal experience and research that I have done on my own. I make no claim to be an expert on this subject or have any type of medical degree. My writing is simply a way for me to put a voice to my own experiences and perhaps help others along the way.
