When I was suffering from the anxiety attacks, I was unaware of the disorder that was affecting me. I never knew it was a disorder actually. It was a complete strange feeling which I had never experienced before. What started as occasional anxiety started to happen several times each day. This was unbearable when it happened in public places and in front of my friends. Before I give you a recommended solution, let me tell you more about the obsessive worries that were conquering my mind.
Obsessive worries and the anxiety attacks:
Some of the effects of the anxiety disorder on my body were trembling hands, the slight headaches, loss of appetite etc … But the most serious effect of this disorder, according to me, was having constant worries in my mind. What this was was taken away the mind control and I was constantly thinking about these obsessive worries instead of doing anything else. This continued for days until I just lost interest in life and lost my self-esteem. My self-esteem reached an all-time low and you know very well what this can do to a person.
Stopping unwanted worries:
Worrying about a certain thing or a situation is a normal process. It is done by everyone and there is nothing bad about that. But what can a person do when he or she can not keep the mind away from thinking about these worries. What else will the brain be able to process then? Here is a must to do something about this. Here are some guidelines for you to stop the obsessive worries:
1. Most of the anxiety attack sufferers would want to be away from social events and from people. But this is a very wrong thing to do. You should at least mingle with your close friends. This will only make you feel better. Nothing is better than a good laugh. As you laugh and mingle with people, your mind is sure to divert from the obsessive worries.
2. Do exercises: I did exercise mainly to feel much better. When you do exercises, you are sure to make your mind concentrate on it rather than the unwanted worries.
Remember that making your mind not concentrate on the irrational thoughts might be a little harder. But do not get disheartened. I was suffering from extreme anxiety but got cured completely. So can you.
