Many people have real reasons for being anxious, not just perceived threats. The therapy, medications and healing would all be the same. A work in progress in learning how to live with your anxiety.
Welcome to hw ;p
Nearly all the things that set off my anxiety are real, the difference when im anxious i cant stop worrying bout them.
e.g Right now im worried bout losing my job too, so when i go into meetings i panic i talk quickly i stumble over my words etc.. as i go to more meetings i begin toworry im going to panic and panic more. As the fear of losing my job grows I start worry bout making mistakes in my daily so I inspect everything 3 times to make sure their are no mistakes or delegate to someone-else. I get so worried and obessesed by the smallest mistake at work that i lay awake at night thinking about it. So I end up going to work tired and am therefore more likely to make mistakes.
The fear of losing my job is real ( i've already had written warnings) but i know if i get really anxious about losing my job it will actually cause me to lose my job. So i have to keep my anxiety in check. Sure alittle anxiety about a very real threat is good but when it gets to the point when its making the problems worse then I know my anxiety disorder is kicking in and its time for me to get help.
