Stress DisorderThey are the most prevalent of all Mental Health problems,
and are more common among women than men, they also affect children as
well as adults. Anxiety disorders are illnesses that can be diagnosed and
they respond well to treatment.It has been estimated that up to 30% of us
suffer from anxiety related problems.Everyone feels anxious at times,
especially if we are put in a pressure situation, for example public
speaking, exams, performing in public, can all lead to an anxious state
of mind, even fear. These sensations, however uncomfortable, are most
often helpful to us, they encourage us to concentrate and heighten our
performance, but they are different from the ones associated with an
anxiety disorder. People suffering from an anxiety disorder are subject
to intense, prolonged feelings of fright and distress, even terror would
not be an exaggeration for some, and there, very often, is no obvious
reason or cause.These, anxiety symptoms, can cause such extreme emotional
distress that the persons whole life is affected, so much so, that many
people inflicted with this condition also suffer from agoraphobia. The
fear experienced from having an attack keeps them from leaving an
environment they feel secure in. It can also have a detrimental effect on
their relationships which makes the problem worse.Not everyone
experiences their particular anxiety disorder to the same extent. Anxiety
disorders range from feelings of uneasiness to immobilizing bouts of
terror. If you believe you, or a loved one, has an anxiety disorder, seek
competent, professional advice or another form of support.Advances in
medication and techniques are being made all the time and if left
untreated, the condition generally becomes worse and relationships
deteriorate as a result. Many people misunderstand these disorders and
wonder what all the fuss is about. they can see how "out of proportion"
the response to the situation is, and they presume the individual should
be able to "pull themselves together", however, willpower does not work
and although the symptoms may seem to be "imagined" by the casual
onlooker, to the person inflicted with this disease, it is all too real,
but there are treatments that can help. That's why it is so important to
seek out expert and professional help by the sufferer and also by those
close to them.
