When exaggerated to an abnormally higher level of stress, anxiety can take over a person’s life, often leading to an irrational dread of everyday activities. Because people often don’t recognize, or don’t want to accept that they are suffering from anxiety, they go untreated. There are numerous anxiety treatments, but none that offer the anxiety help that Gregory L. Jantz, PhD, addresses in his new book, “Overcoming Anxiety, Worry, and Fear.” Anxiety is serious and the accompanying stress and depression that often go along with it make a strong, healthy life very difficult.
With so much of the population struggling, it’s no wonder anxiety goes undetected and untreated in so many people. Many people don’t recognize the symptoms or don’t know how to help others. If you answer yes to more than just a couple of the following questions, seek help.
- Do you fear losing control or excessively worry about things you can’t control?
- Do you avoid certain social situations or places out of fear?
- Do you obsessively repeat activities such as double-checking if you turned off the stove, locked the doors, closed the garage, etc.?
- Do you continually relive in your mind disturbing events or thoughts from the past?
- Do you fear leaving home or being somewhere you can’t escape from?
- Do you shake, twitch or have shortness of breath while resting?
- Do you suffer from irritability, restlessness, fatigue or difficulty sleeping?
