Anxiety Mental Health Awareness Week

Anxiety Mental Health Awareness Week

Anxiety can present itself as a phobia, a state that individuals constantly find themselves in, or something so chronic that is can result in an inability to hold down a regular job or maintain long-term relationships with friends, partners and family.

It can be really severe and effect life. I have to say that clinically a phobia of needles is my only anxiety disorder. Regular readers will know that I had some traumatic events in my childhood. But I am doing really well and have had a lot of therapy – I CAN go to social situations without shaking, blushing, having a dry mouth, sweating (although I do get hot very easily and then I cannot concentrate).
