Anxiety Social Net is a meeting place for persons afflicted with anxiety disorders, as well as those who have managed to overcome them. If you have helplessly watched a family member grapple anxiety disorders, you are encouraged to join too.
As an ongoing anxiety sufferer, you may find explanations to some of the sensations you often feel, but cannot easily put into words. You may even get answers to questions you haven’t been able to frame, because you don’t understand your symptoms well enough.
For past sufferers who emerged victorious, in being able to control their symptoms instead of allowing their symptoms to control them, you know exactly how it feels. Reach out and lend a helping hand to those who can benefit most from your advice and suggestions. Lend an ear or a lifeline to someone in need.
Anxiety disorders often manifest themselves at inopportune moments, amplifying their impact. They afflict adults, and they affect children too, putting worrisome burdens on them at a tender age. While the experiences of current and past sufferers are likely to be similar, they may also be uniquely different.
In sharing their most distressing experiences, members will find it helpful to know they are not as different from everyone else as they may have formerly believed. AnxietySocialNet is the brainchild of a former sufferer, who has overcome his own struggles, and aims to help those who hope to unshackle themselves from the problems that hold them captive.
Medication can lessen their symptoms, but the kindness and the presence of someone to talk to – someone who understands, can ease their burdens. Particularly helpful will be the true stories of sufferers, of those who have recovered, and advice that will be appreciated by all.
Most heartening of all will be the stories of those who went by their instincts, in fighting their symptoms by keeping busy, depending on their talents, or building interests like painting, sewing and even cooking, although they lacked the appetite for food themselves.
Reach out and make contact with other sufferers from anxiety disorders. Share your stories of how you calmed the tempests which had earlier wrought havoc in your lives. Throw a lifeline to someone who needs it badly, or find one for yourself here.
