Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. – Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders
People with anxiety, chronic or acute, will tell us how exhausting and frustrating of a condition that it can be.
It’s frustrating because they know and understand that it’s just a misfiring of brain signals, and it shouldn’t be so hard to revert anxiety; it’s exhausting because dealing with continuous, unwanted thoughts can quickly sap energy…energy that could have been used for something else more productive.
As mentioned, as with so many mental dis-orders, anxiety is simply a byproduct of abnormal chemical activity in the brain. Psychologists and other medical professionals remain mystified concerning the direct cause for anxiety. This mystification extends to the individual directly impacted by anxiety’s insistent presence.
In addition, there are also signs of chronic anxiety that shouldn’t be ignored, we’ll also discuss ways that can help someone dealing with them.
(Note: Keep in mind that the sooner the root cause of these symptoms are identified, the sooner one can move forth with a method of treatment.)
