Women and Anxiety
Women are twice as vulnerable to anxiety as men and anxiety is a common symptom of premenstrual syndrome, premenstrual dysphoric disorder, perimenopause and menopause. Symptoms of anxiety can range from worry and fears about what might happen at work or in relationships to full blown panic attacks in which a woman feels she is having a heart attack. When your anxiety is keeping you from living your life to its fullest, it's time to seek help. Anxiety is a very treatable disorder, but it can also grow worse and become more entrenched if left untreated.
Types of anxiety disorders include Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Social Anxiety. Anxiety can lead to avoidance of the things that used to be a regular part of our lives - often leading to isolation and withdrawal in order to avoid becoming anxious
Don't let anxiety control your life. You can regain control and take back your regular routines and peace of mind. It takes work and courage, but cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness have been shown to be highly effective in the treatment of anxiety disorders.
