Feeling fearful or anxiety? – recovery is possible
There are times when we feel fear and we may be anxious in different moments in our life. We may feel fear when we are in situations where we are threatened or perceive a threat. Individuals may feel anxious when facing stresses at work and having to meet deadlines. In fact, having some form of anxiety may actually be productive in getting people into action in completing tasks or in making changes in their lives.
While Anxiety and fear are common emotions, these emotions can become overwhelming if they are excessive and irrational. Individuals may develop difficulties in being able to work and to meet the demands of life or in relationships which results in a condition called an anxiety disorder.
Some of the symptoms of an Anxiety disorder may include a sense of helplessness, worry and repeated negative thoughts. Physical symptoms such as muscle tension, rapid heartbeats and difficulty in breathing may be experienced. At Promises healthcare we offer a variety of treatment options for the treatment of anxiety.
