About Anxiety only on Best question and answer platform.
Anxiety has become a very serious and common issue these days it is suffered by very young as well as old age people.
You don’t have to worry it is not a disease it’s just a problem that can happen to anyone
In this blog, I will share my story of anxiety and also how I coped with it.
What is Anxiety?
Anxiety is a mental and physical reaction to stressful, dangerous, or unusual situations. It is a feeling of discomfort, depression, or fear that you feel before an important event. A certain level of anxiety helps us to stay awake and alert, but for those with anxiety disorders, it sounds far from normal – it can be completely debilitating.
Types of Anxiety Disorders
There are many problems related to anxiety, and they are divided into three main categories:
Anxiety disorders are characterized by a common fear factor (i.e. an emotional response to a thought or real threat) and/or anxiety (i.e., anxiety about a future threat) and can have negative behavioral and emotional consequences.
Depressive and related disorders:
Depressive and related disorders are characterized by stressful, stressful thoughts (e.g., constant worry about staying clean, or body size) resulting in related, compulsive behaviors,
. These behaviors are designed to alleviate the anxiety associated with strange thoughts.
Well, I have gone through this type of Anxiety Traumatic and Depression Disorders. I was in Intermediate it was the time of my 4th Sem exams I was super well prepared and ready to go then I I hear my Father and Mother arguing about something I thought was normal, I mean come-on arguing is common but then it got intense and my father slapped and pushed my mom out of our house saying
‘I don’t need you anymore’ I think that was the day I completely lost myself, Yeah I tried to stop him obviously but he is twice the size iam, He pushed me away too. I had no idea what to do, How to stop it, I was also getting late for my exam and Finally, it stopped when I hit my hand on a wall and I was injured badly, Then I went for my exam and in the exam the whole time I was in pain physically and mentally.
After that every time I used to think about what’s happening at the home even I used to get anxious by thinking about it all the time.
In the below paragraph, I will give the way to cope up with Anxiety which really helped me.
Traumatic and Depression Disorders:
Anxiety disorders related to trauma and depression are related to feelings of trauma e.g., unexpected death of a loved one, a car accident, or a violent incident such as war or sexual abuse) or depression.
Causes and Risk factors
It is important to note that everyone experiences some degree of anxiety throughout his or her life. Fear and anxiety are helpful emotions that can work to help us recognize danger or threats that keep us safe and help us get used to our environment. Anxiety problems occur when major stress disrupts your ability to work on important life issues, such as work, school, or relationships. There are many risk factors for anxiety disorder, and most people may experience many different combinations of risk factors, such as neurobiological factors, genetic symptoms, environmental factors, and health information. At present, however, we do not fully understand why some people develop anxiety disorders.
Comorbidity is more common than anxiety disorders, which means that most people who experience major anxiety experience different types of anxiety. In view of these interactions, it is not surprising that many risk factors are shared in all anxiety disorders, or have similar causes. There is a lot of research that identifies the risk factors for anxiety disorders, and this study shows that both nature and upbringing are very important. It is important to note that there is no single risk factor. Most people can be at risk of illness and never develop that disease. However, it is helpful for research to identify hazardous substances and make people aware of them. Knowing who is at risk can help people find support or help prevent the disease from developing.
Harmful genetic factors have been documented for all anxiety disorders. Genetic research studies show that heritability rates for anxiety disorders range from 30-67%. Many studies, past and present, have focused on identifying specific genetic factors that increase the risk of anxiety disorders. To date, a series of nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) or small genetic variants have been identified, providing a high risk for anxiety. For the most part, the variations associated with the risk of anxiety are found within the genes important in the expression and regulation of neurotransmitter systems or stress hormones.
It is important to note that genetic factors may also provide tolerance for anxiety disorders, and the field continues to pursue major genomics studies to identify novel genetic factors associated with anxiety disorders in hopes of better understanding biological mechanisms that 1) contribute to the development and maintenance of anxiety, and 2) can lead to better treatment of these disorders. Most people do not know what specific genetic traits they may have that contribute to the risk of anxiety disorders, so the most accurate way to measure genetic risk is to have a family history of anxiety disorder. Although both nature and upbringing may play a role in family history, if a few people have an anxiety disorder, the genetic risk of anxiety may be present in that family.
With regard to environmental factors in the family, parental behavior may contribute to the risk of anxiety disorders. Parents who show high levels of control (compared to giving children independence) while communicating with their children have been associated with a growing number of anxiety disorders. Parental modeling of anxious behavior and parental rejection of the child has also been shown to be associated with a higher risk of possible anxiety. Coping with stressful life events or chronic stress is also related to the development of anxiety disorders. Stressful childhood events, including coping with trauma, sexual, physical, or emotional abuse, or the loss of parents or separation may increase the risk of developing anxiety later in life. Facing a traumatic event or a very stressful event can be dangerous for the development of anxiety in all age groups. In line with the view that the pressure of endless life leads to increased risk of anxiety, low access to social and economic resources or belonging to a small group has also been suggested to be associated with greater risk.
Having a chronic illness or serious illness can increase the risk of developing anxiety disorders, as well as dealing with a serious illness of a family member or loved one. Given that a number of medical conditions have been linked to severe anxiety, in some cases, a physician may perform medical tests to rule out a lesser medical condition. For example, thyroid disease is often characterized by significant symptoms of anxiety. Menopause, heart disease, and diabetes have also been linked to symptoms. Additionally, drug abuse or multiple drug withdrawal symptoms are characterized by severe anxiety, and chronic drug abuse can increase the risk of developing an anxiety disorder. Anxiety may also be a result of certain medications. Finding significant sleep disorders, such as difficulty sleeping or staying asleep, can also be a dangerous factor in developing anxiety disorders.
Behavioral options can also have a significant impact on risk, as excessive smoking or caffeine consumption can increase anxiety, while regular exercise can reduce anxiety. Certain personality conditions and personality traits may also present a risk of developing an anxiety disorder. When it comes to attitude, shyness, and restraint in childhood can increase the risk of developing anxiety disorder later in life. In terms of personality traits, the Five-Factor Model of Personality contains five broad domains, including Neuroticism, Extraversion, Openness to Experience, Agreeableness, and Conscientiousness. A person with a high degree of Neuroticism or a person with a low conscience is at greater risk of all anxiety disorders, and a person who is low t
Now is the for what we all need a Solution? I will mention those which I tried and helped me. My anxiety was less serious because from my childhood I have been mentally strong if you think you have a less serious case try these.
Self-care: Self-care measures that can help in some less serious situations:
–Maintain a positive attitude
–Get enough sleep
–Learn what causes anxiety and how to calm yourself down
–Eat nutritious food
–Practice relaxation techniques such as yoga
–Stop smoking and use caffeinated beverages
See a doctor if you see:
–Anxiety disrupts daily activities
–It’s after a history of anxiety
–Anxiety is accompanied by insomnia
–Depression is evident
See a doctor immediately if you notice:
–Having a panic attack
Anxiety shouldn’t be neglected instead should be taken total care of I adopted self-care as I said my anxiety was not a serious case, I just used to be lost but nothing like Depression or Suicidal thoughts if you have any of these you should consult a doctor before Anxiety eats you. If you have any questions regarding Anxiety ask them on questionmag
Be strong and stay positive.
