Happy Holiday to All,
Lets share how you know it is time to seek help for anxiety.
People with GAD can at times feel overwhelmed by their symptoms. The central signs of GAD are anxiety and worry that are difficult to control and have lasted for at least 6 months. In addition to excessive, often uncontrolled worry that impacts functioning, people with GAD experience at least three of the following symptoms:
1. Restlessness or feeling on edge
2. Being easily fatigued
3. Having difficulty concentrating
5. Muscle Tension
6. Sleep Disturbance (difficulty falling or staying asleep)
If you feel that the above describes what you are experiencing, you may want to contact a doctor to see what type of treatment, if any, is appropriate. There are several approaches to treatment for GAD that range from pharmacologic intervention (e.g., medications) to behavioral therapy (such as relaxation training). Others may wish to pursue therapy to get at deeper root causes for their anxiety: why for example do we feel uncertain, unsettled or ambivalent about our life choices – which in turn leads to anxiety? In my experience, supplementing an intervention with healthy living habits, such as eating well and, importantly, regular exercise can go a long way toward helping with symptoms.
Here is a link to all the sx you may experience with anxiety. Many have a couple others develop many sx.
