The Basics of Treating Anxiety Disorders

While it may be hard to find someone who has not experienced some form of anxiety in their life, there are those whose anxiety never fades which can make it impossible for suffers to lead a normal life. When the ability to participate in certain events or go to certain places is prevented by an unshakable fear of things that could possibly occur many find themselves becoming reclusive instead of enjoying the life they once led.

Suffers of anxiety disorders may think that their “disease” is something that is uncontrollable, but that could not be further from the truth. Those suffering from some form of anxiety disorder can take hold of their symptoms with the right form of treatment for anxiety disorders since it is a condition and not an illness that causes people to become physically, psychologically, emotionally, or spiritually fearful or distraught over any number of situations. When this happens a person’s normal anxiety turns into a disorder because the mind and body can no longer respond to situations in a normal manner, but no matter how bad your symptoms are you can take hold of your anxiety with the right help and support in treating anxiety disorders.

Some may choose to turn to medication in order to assist in reducing their anxiety disorder symptoms, and while this may work for some, it should not be considered the only cure for healthy living. While some may claim otherwise, medication actually has a very low success rate for treating anxiety disorder symptoms which does not bode well for long term success in taking control of your anxiety symptoms. Anxiety disorders commonly occur for specific reasons and are commonly associated with an underlying reason. When you take control over the underlying cause, the disorder that is associated with the cause is gone for good.

When you mask the symptoms with the assistance of medication, you are not addressing the underlying reasons for the disorder which prevents you from achieving a successful treatment for anxiety disorders. Anxiety disorder suffers who choose medication commonly end up staying on the medication for the long term, resulting in a type of yo-yo effect of going on and off the drugs over and over again without resolving the issues once and for all. Until the underlying cause of the anxiety is addressed, the symptoms will remain preventing the sufferer from returning to the life they once loved.

Based on extensive research it has been found that the most effective treatment for anxiety disorders is the combination of the right form of self help instruction with the assistance of a qualified therapist who specializes in dealing with anxiety recovery. A coach, counsellor, therapist, or even a psychologist who has successfully beaten anxiety in their own life and have been free of medication for at least 3 years are all good choices when choosing the right therapist for assistance in treating anxiety disorders. Therapists who are currently on medication for treating their own anxiety have proven to not be good sources for anxiety help. Studies have shown that those who work with a therapist that has overcome their own anxiety disorder tend to be the best in assisting others in tackling their own unique form of this disorder. Those who are still using anti-anxiety meds may lead current suffers to wonder how helpful could this therapist be if they are unable to overcome their own anxiety disorder.

While this claim any bother some mental health professionals, our experience has shown that this claim commonly proves to be true. Many who have previously enlisted the help of one of these professionals for the treatment of anxiety disorders have found that their condition remained or in the worst case actually got worse even after treatment. Anxiety disorders can be cured but you need to have the right information as well as the right level of support to help your end your anxiety disorder once and for all.

Anxiety disorders can be classified in either one of two categories. Suffers are most commonly prone to either circumstantial anxiety or chronic anxiety, both of which can be cured if treated properly.

Circumstantial Anxiety:

This form of anxiety disorder is commonly characterized by symptoms that are caused by an acute stressful event, its circumstances or even emotions. Examples that can cause this form of anxiety can include, but are not limited to, relationship difficulties, a career challenge, an illness, death of a loved one or even educational stress can create a constant level of anxiety. Since the build-up of stress commonly comes before an anxiety condition, most types of early stress conditions can be classified in this category. Once the stress inducing event, circumstance or even emotion passes, the use of the right self help materials, rest and time will help the sufferer resolve their anxiety conditions on their own.

Chronic Anxiety:

This type of anxiety is commonly characterized by symptoms that will appear and then disappear over an extended period of time which can range from a few month to a year or longer. Examples can include a person who has symptoms that come and go at various stages of their life, the symptoms will commonly remain as an ongoing backdrop to their life, and these suffers will commonly be on and off medication for their entire life unless they get the right form of treatment for anxiety disorders. Chronic anxiety also comes with a form of deep seated fear. Many anxiety suffers will live life in fear that the symptoms of their illness will be visible to others. An anxiety episode can last anywhere from a few weeks to many years, while some may deal with symptoms throughout their entire life. Those plagued by symptoms for an extended period of time can also be referred to as entrenched anxiety.

Anxiety disorders can be further classified into even more specific forms of anxiety. The classifications are as follows:

A spontaneous or panic anxiety that can occur regardless of where the person may be.
A situation or phobic anxiety or panic that can occur because of a particular situation or location that the person is in.
A form of anticipatory anxiety or panic that can occur because the person has a thought or fear that something might happen or that a particular situation might occur.
A form of involuntary anxiety or panic that can occur by itself, or completely out of the blue. This type of anxiety or panic is commonly not preceded by a spontaneous, situational or even anticipatory anxiety.

The Benefits of Having Anxiety

Believe it or not, there are actually several beneficial character traits which a person can develop as a result of their anxiety and they can use these personality traits to their advantage. Several of the personality traits which shall be detailed within this article can be employed to allow a person to become a valuable asset at work and in personal relationships.

However, an even more useful reason to identify the positive aspects of having anxiety is to help a person overcome the condition.

It’s incredibly difficult to overcome anxiety as the condition itself can cause a person to become extremely negative, both about their prospects and themselves as a person. Furthermore, anxiety is an extremely cyclical condition and many anxiety sufferers (after their first attack) simply become anxious about being anxious.

This is because they recognize and focus on the widely published, both online and in-print, negative connotations which partner the condition. Evidently, it’s imperative that anxiety sufferers are given the opportunity to identify and focus on any positive aspects of the condition, so that they can retain a positive mindset during their recovery from the condition. This is all part of a process to help develop a positive mental attitude (P.M.A.) which will encourage self-esteem growth, positivity and become a valuable aid during the recover process.

Below I will discuss the character traits an anxious person might develop, as well as explain why said traits can have a positive influence in the everyday life of a sufferer. Identification and emphasis on these character traits will help to reduce the stress and pressure of being an anxiety sufferer and allow a sufferer to employ the aforementioned character traits to improve the quality of their life.

Conscientious

By it’s very nature, anxiety is a condition which renders the sufferer extremely conscientious. A sufferer will display much greater angst over everyday concerns – such as being late for work or not completing a project – than a non-anxiety sufferer. The generation of this angst ensures a sufferer will be punctual, resilient and extremely determined to complete any given tasks both on time and to a high standard as this will ease their anxious feelings and leave them with a much desired sense of accomplishment. Thus people with anxiety can become valuable commodities to a company and achieve great success in their field because of the angst which drives them to succeed and satisfy any requests given.

Observational

As many people with anxiety fret about the opinion and judgment of their peers, many sufferers will strive to gain approval which can lead to a heightened level observational skill. A prominent method employed by anxiety sufferers to gain the approval of their peers – as well as to detract attention from their own anxiety – is to offer compliments. This can build a person’s observational skill as they begin to recognize subtle changes in the people around them. Having suffered from anxiety myself, and having known a community of anxiety sufferers, I feel confident enough to state that anxiety sufferers will be the first to recognize if a person has a new haircut or is wearing a new pair of shoes. I theorize that this heightened observational skill develops because the sufferer constantly seeks out a way to complement a person in order to gain their friendship and trust and as such constantly watches for physical characteristics to praise. Eventually a person begins to simply notice these little physical features and minute changes subconsciously, allowing them a higher sense of observational skill which can lead to a strong rapport with co-workers, deeper friendships and happier relationships.

Safety

Anxiety is a reaction generated by your brain to a perceived (often non-existent) sense of danger. Basically, during an anxiety attack a person’s brain is activating their fight-vs-flight response and inducing a feeling of intense panic so that they remove themselves from the danger – which can of course be problematic in everyday life. However, it is important to note that, whilst this perceived danger is often non-existent, an anxiety sufferer is extremely in tune with the environment around them and thus when danger is present an anxiety sufferer will be much more aware of this and as such will be able to quickly identify the most productive way to remain safe. This can be an incredible benefit in a person’s personal life as it allows them to ensure their family and/or friends avoid danger and stay safe.

Self-Awareness

Now most anxiety sufferers have low self-esteem, and consequently they’re normally very self aware and extremely conscious of what they say to others. This is a highly underrated skill. It is often recommended to people that they “think before you speak” so that people don’t say inappropriate comments which they might regret later; however, because an anxiety sufferer has a high level of self-awareness and an intense desire to gain approval, many sufferers select their words carefully. This allows anxiety sufferers to fit in to almost any social or professional situation because they’re reliable and trustworthy to maintain the correct level of respect in said situations. Following on, another extremely underrated quality is the ability to be self-aware. Anxiety sufferers recognize their weaknesses which grants them the somewhat unique ability to instantly identify areas which require improvement which can allow for unprecedented development and progress in a professional capacity.

Confidentiality

Due to a combination of excellent self-awareness and an eagerness to please people allows anxiety sufferers to become exceptional listeners and trusted advisers. Many anxiety sufferers will allow people to confide in them – high levels of empathy also – and will often carefully selected advice in a bid to help the speaker; however, more importantly, many anxiety sufferers will retain any information awarded to them with the utmost confidentiality. This is because an anxiety sufferer will worry about the consequences of revealing a person’s private information and as such would prefer to keep this information to him/herself. The ability to be confidential is a wonderful character trait and can lead to the development of strong friendships and relationships.

Kindness

Many anxiety sufferers house the valuable ability to offer extreme kindness to their peers. This ability stems from the desire to gain the approval of other people by paying compliments and demonstrating a degree of empathy. As many anxiety sufferers are aware of their condition and the detrimental affect it can have on their life, they’re much more understanding of the pain and problems of their surrounding peer group and often strive to help out whenever possible to ensure that people enjoy a better quality of life. Anxiety sufferers require support and thus they also understand the need for it and generally offer it also; however, the most prominent aspect of this understanding of the need for support is that the anxiety sufferer has the ability to put a person at ease about the stigma of receiving support as they themselves receive support and as such can relate. The level of support, empathy and kindness displayed by many anxiety sufferers can lead to beneficial relationships in both their professional and personal lives.
