Anxiety disorder affects millions of people, but no one needs to struggle with it alone. AMFM is here to help clients struggling with anxiety reach a healthier and happier state of mind.
When Anxiety Becomes A Problem
Anxiety can become dangerous when it becomes a constant plague, sending the brain into an overactive mode. A disproportionate amount of stress can negatively affect someone who is struggling with an anxiety disorder. In these cases, the mind begins signaling “danger” even when the situation is not dangerous in any tangible way. In these instances, the brain becomes the attacker.
At AMFM, we help our clients feel in control of their lives again.
Types of Anxiety Disorders
There are many types of anxiety disorders, all of which have the potential to be paralyzing. Anxiety can deter one from thinking clearly and perceiving reality in a fair and balanced fashion. As such, it affects someone’s ability to interact authentically and live in the present moment.
Anxiety can make someone susceptible to irrational fears and moments of intense panic. Those struggling with it may experience panic attacks, catch themselves forgetting to breathe, or notice a constant flood of racing thoughts that seem never to disappear. All these symptoms are part of an anxiety disorder.
Signs of Anxiety Disorders
Anxiety disorders can cause the prolonged symptoms such as:
Sense of impending doom or impending panic
Fear of going “crazy” or “insane”
Inability to concentrate
Persistent racing thoughts
More subtle signs may include muscle tension, persistent fatigue, social isolation, shortness of breath, irritability, and high heart rate or heart palpitations. If an individual is consistently experiencing any of these symptoms, they may have an anxiety disorder.
Our team of professionals at AMFM are here to help clients learn tools and skills to better help manage and overcome their anxiety.
