Symptoms of Anxiety:
  • Worrying constantly for no reason at all
  • Choosing not to get involved in certain activities
  • Feeling sick or nauseous
  • Feeling short of breath
  • Feeling dizzy or lightheaded
  • Being unable to think clearly
Now with the knowledge of my enemy and the skills to deal with it, I feel more comfortable.

Family and Home

When anxiety disorder affects a social group that is more closely knit and small, the detrimental effects may be greater. At an individual level, anxiety is already challenging to cope with. At a social level, the condition may subject your family to unpredictability, fear, and worry over your wellbeing. It is thus critical to seek professional intervention–for the sake of your loved ones.

Have you noticed that you tend to:
  • Be nervous, irritable, and even rude to your family
  • Have frequent mood swings
  • Avoid family gatherings
  • Always worry and talk about negative things
My struggle has been made easier by the support and understanding of those around me.
