AN INVISIBLE, TERRIBLE ENEMY OF OUR TIMES.

Anxiety is a normal emotion. It’s your brain’s way of reacting to stress and it’s a worry about future events, while Fear is a reaction to current events. Occasional anxiety is fine. But the excessive anxiety can make you avoid work, school, family get-togethers, and other social situations that might trigger or worsen your symptoms. There are several anxiety disorders such as: Separation anxiety: it’s a type of anxiety that young children have, and involves worry about being separated from their parents. Generalized anxiety: it’s a type of anxiety characterized by excessive, uncontrollable worry about events or activities. It’s very present in many children and teenagers, because they worry about school grades and exams. But adults can also have it while working. Phobias:  an anxiety disorder, characterized by an unreasonable fear associated with a specific object or situation… Anxiety disorders can also make it hard to breathe, sleep, stay still, and concentrate.  Your specific symptoms depend on the type of anxiety disorder you have. The common symptoms are: Panic and fear – Sleep problems – Nausea – Tremble, and so on…

Sometimes you develop these disorders because of the past. For example, children who have gone through childhood abuse are more likely to have these illnesses because of their trauma.

There are many treatments to reduce and manage symptoms of anxiety disorder. Usually, people with anxiety disorder take medicine and go to counseling. Other possibly treatment are meditating and going to a psychiatrist. But you can also treat yourself just taking medicine, don’t overthink and cut down on foods that have caffeine. Doing a diet and exercise helps too. And most importantly, going out with your friends remove these anxieties. I have to be honest, I also have anxiety when I have to do a speech or an important exam but luckily I can manage it with a good dose of willpower. I try to think positive and I overcome the challenge. I would suggest to those who feel suffocated by anxiety to be strong, to pull out all the energy we have inside to overcome this discomfort and come out on top.
