What Those Closest To You May Not Comprehend About Anxiety And Depression

  • Your brave and I’m so glad you wrote about this. I don’t feel I can talk openly about for fear of being judged. Let’s just be clear, I don’t feel I’m brave- I’m on a mission.
  • People share their personal stories with me and I feel so sad that they don’t feel they can share it with a Doctor or a therapist. I always tell the person it would be beneficial to them if they would seek out professional help.
  • Ironically, more men message me than women. I think men are possibly more afraid of the stigma than many females.
  • A constant feeling of doom
  • Intrusive thoughts that run through your mind constantly as if your mind was a merry go round
  • Dizziness, vertigo, the feeling as though you’re going to pass out, racing heart- which can race for hours if you’re untreated.
  • Irritability, sweating palms, insomnia, feeling as though a vice is around your neck slowly suffocating you, tremors and/or facial tics.
