We all have all had that nagging headache that wont go away, you take painkillers but it’s still there in the back ground so you have no choice to deal with it, well if you suffer with Anxiety then you know all about it being an unwanted guest and it lurking in the back ground.
If you look up Anxiety on the internet it will tell you that It is a feeling of unease, such as worry or fear and can stem anything from mild to severe.
But if you suffer with Anxiety it means so much more and the symptoms you get is far worse than is described.
Generally Anxiety forms when we are tense, worried or afraid.
You worry about things that could happen and what could possibly happen in the future and with this you will go through many different scenarios in your head getting you more stressed in the process.
I suffer with a very mild case of Anxiety myself and I have been around a few people with very severe cases and I was shocked with how it affect you as a whole mentally and physically.
Its drain you, deprives you of sleep because you never switch off and in turn you get poorly easier because your body is so run down and you just need a break.
When I did a bit of research online about this I was surprised at some of the stats I found such as
- In 2013 there was 8.2 million cases of Anxiety in the UK (That was back in 2013 can you imagine what that would be like now and not to mention that is just in the UK alone.
- Women in England are twice as likely to suffer from Anxiety than men
Although this can be treated with medication people are still suffering and it just masks the problem so please if you see someone suffering with Anxiety be a bit more understanding and patient.
Your impatience is just going to make the situation worse, there not being silly or will get over it once they just calm down they just need some care, understanding and time.
Worrying is carrying tomorrow’s load with today’s strength- carrying two days at once. It is moving into tomorrow ahead of time. Worrying doesn’t empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength”
If anyone suffers reading this suffers with Anxiety I wish you all the best and hope it gets better for you and you get all the help you need.
