8 Situations Signalling Anxiety!
Of course, it is very natural to feel occasionally anxious and concerned because anxiety is a normal part of life… A job with a deadline, exam, health, money, children and family problems can worry a lot of people. Nevertheless, a certain level of anxiety is also a positive thing that allows us to deal with these situations and trigger our quick decision-making ability. But the essential question we ask is, “What if the anxiety is too much and continuous?”
When anxiety is excessive, something begins to derail in our lives. The inability to think clearly reveals and distorts our ability to realistically assess this risk. It makes us extremely frightened or uneasy. Of course, this situation affects our mood and annoys our body. It can annoy us and make us negative.
For most people, worry comes and goes, and our body's stress response re-adjusts itself when needed to return to a functional way of interacting with the world. For some people, however, anxiety either raises too high, time and again or ascends above a chronic normal level. Such people may have anxiety disorders.
Do You See Any of These Signs on Yourselves?
1) Chronic anxiety about possible events even after assurance…
The anxiety that is functional and rational, often adds a realistic sense of risk, and can be adjusted with accurate information gathering. However, the constant concern that goes out of control often feels resistant to assurance. For example, you have a suspicion that you have been infected with hepatitis C, and although you had tests repeatedly and the results are negative, your concern persists. That's exactly what we call resistance to assurance status. Like a mental storm you can't stop thinking about unrealized things or what happened in the past…
2) Physical Symptoms You Encounter
Anxiety usually comes with physical symptoms, but in manageable situations, these symptoms can get over or cope without too many problems. However, in cases of extreme anxiety, the symptoms become problematic and become worse when they are recognized, and creates a vicious circle. Stomach ache, headache, heart palpitations, drowsiness and tingling, dizziness and dyspnea are among the most common symptoms and can interfere significantly with daily life when they are excessive.
3) Difficulty In Concentration Or Lack Of Idea
Many different factors affect changes in your ability to concentrate, such as depression or sleep gaps. However, anxiety is definitely is the primary factor. In such cases, a person's thoughts move so quickly that they have difficulty in focusing anywhere.
4) Sleep Disorders
For some people struggling with anxiety, sleep problems are annoying. They lie in bed actively concerned because they cannot fall asleep. When compared to other people, the differences are clearly visible, such as not being able to fall asleep comfortably, increasing the frequency of having bothersome nightmares and getting a more restless sleep in general.
5) Increasing Negativity and Nervosity
People with increasing anxieties are only aware of their anger towards the world, as they sometimes do not have the ability to go with the flow and be patient so as to be more comfortable for themselves. Worried people can begin to turn this negativity inside, at the same time they can doubt their ability to overcome obstacles and consider themselves in a much more negative way than before. This is a symptom that may overlap with depression, as if nothing will improve.
6) Increasing Problems at School or at Home
If someone doesn't feel mentally doing the best they can, it may be difficult to recuperate motivation to perform as he did before. Their hopelessness and lack of motivation (along with the difficulties of concentrating) may even lead his sincere efforts to be insufficient.
7) Increasing Conflicts in Relationships
In the quarrels, the worried person may be more vulnerable, turn to pessimistic and hesitate to do the social things they wanted before due to discomfort caused by the situation. They can see things from a more extreme point of view, which makes them less patient and tolerant - and this may cause increased problems in relationships.
8) Feeling the Distress of the Sense of “Getting Out of Control"
Sometimes it may be difficult for people who are worried to express their experiences in words. They can express what they feel with the terms “get suffocation” or “getting out of control” of their lives. For some people, it may be somatized stating that something is physically wrong in their bodies and something does not go well. Another group feel themselves as if they are locked up so that they cannot feel comfortable.
