At Anxiety Nurse, we have made it our mission to help long term sufferers learn to recognise their own triggers and explore more holistic options for managing their anxiety.
Anxiety – very few of us are untouched by it these days in some shape or form. These are common experiences for most of us, until the problem starts to negatively impact everyday life and wellness.
Chronic and acute anxiety are often debilitating to a person’s well being and mindset, manifesting itself in sometimes overwhelming feelings of panic and terror, a loss of control where sufferers can often report feeling like they are dying in that moment. A racing heart, irrational thoughts, and distorted perceptions of reality in a lightning flash attack, just losing all concepts of time and self-awareness; it is a horrible seize of the present. It’s easy to understand why people often run to the nearest doctor for the highly prescribed but addictive benzodiazepines like Xanax, Valium, Klonopin, Ativan, and the rest, a sometimes vicious cycle of temporary relief where often times the end result just becomes a compound problem.
