According to a study by the National Institute of Mental Help, more than 18% of American adults suffer from an anxiety disorder. Still, despite the fact that this is a widespread issue, many don’t seek help. In some cases, it’s because they don’t know where to get help.

If you notice that your health is starting to suffer, then it’s time to get help. Anxiety can cause or worse migraines, heart disease, asthma, and other physical conditions. The symptoms of anxiety can also give evidence to an underlying issue. For example, common symptoms of anxiety include dizziness, stomachache, and chest pains. If you’re experiencing these, then it’s important to get assurance from a medical professional that you’re okay.
It can feel impossible to handle work while you’re experiencing anxiety. If you’re missing days from work, show up late, or can’t seem to perform the tasks you’re required to do, then it’s time to reach out to a wellness center who can help you.
Do you have friends, family, or loved ones who have told you they’re worried about you? Anxiety can have a negative impact on relationships in a range of ways. For example, a person with anxiety can worry that their partner is cheating on them, they may avoid their friends or families if they don’t want to go to social events, and they may have trouble communicating.
Do you find that you’re drinking alcohol more often than you did before you were experiencing anxiety? Are you using drugs? The reality is that people with drug addictions are twice as likely to have an anxiety disorder. The same is true of drinking – many people who drink to excess are doing so to medicate their anxiety disorder.
Do you find it difficult to enjoy life? Are you missing activities you used to enjoy? Do you feel trapped, isolated, or alone? Are you scared a lot of the time? While this may have become the norm for you, it’s not the only way. We can help you.
