You feel tense. You can’t sleep. You’re having trouble concentrating. You may even be making mistakes at work on simple things. There is enough nervous energy in your body to provide power to all of Raleigh and maybe even the surrounding areas. Sometimes your heart races, you have shortness of breath, and you think you might be having a heart attack – even though you’ve been told you’re in fine health. You’re trying to keep it together, but it’s taking a huge amount of energy.
You may have even tried everything you can think of to make the anxiety go away – eating, not eating, trying to push the feelings and fear away – but not none of it is working. You’re starting to wonder, “Is this just how it is?” You know you don’t want to go on like this, but you don’t know how to make it different. What you do know is you want to be free of the stranglehold anxiety has on your life. You want to come up with a plan that works.
There is hope and anxiety doesn’t have to be an ever-present part of life. Research shows therapy can be helpful. Working with a counselor can help you process any experiences that trigger the anxiety and teach you skills to overcome it.
