Worrying doesn’t take away tomorrow’s troubles,
it robs you of today’s peace
If you’re like many of my clients, you probably feel exhausted from your brain on “go mode” all the time. It seems like there’s just so much to do but no time to do it all. You start one thing and then panic that something else is going to fall to the wayside, so you move onto that.
That’s when the panic sets in and you start to freak out. You can’t sleep and are up all night thinking about the next day and then freak out about that.
It can sometimes feel like a game of pinball and you’re just darting from one thing to the next.
In the end, you start to suffer. Your relationships start to break down. You’re either on your last nerve and jumping all over everyone or you just can’t stop crying or worrying. Really, concentrating on anything is just so hard to do. You have a million thoughts racing in your head and you just want it to stop.
If someone asks you to do something or gives you a task, you forget what they said a few minutes later and that now makes you overwhelmed, tearful, and you don’t’ know what to do. Anything that comes your way feels like you’re being asked you to solve the world’s problems…it’s just too much to take in.
There is help available for you
Like Depression, Anxiety may be a result of a specific life event or trauma. We will work together to explore where your source of the anxiety is stemming from and get to the root of the problem. This way, in the future, you can be better equipped to face these things head on. Anxiety effects over 18.1% of people in the United States. Again, like Depression, it does not discriminate as children, adolescents, adults and elderly can all be affected by anxiety.
Anxiety is real, and can be debilitating for some people. Most importantly, in beginning counseling for anxiety, you will learn how to decrease your level of stress, feelings of being overwhelmed, and increase your ability to participate in your daily activities. You will want to engage in life again, enjoying time with other people, and on the flip side being able to be okay with being alone.
