Anxiety Relief
by: Candi

It must be frustrating and scary that your anxiety is increasing and you can't seem to make it go away. What you are experiencing is actually quite common in people who have recently been diagnosed with anxiety disorders. The awareness of any anxiety symptoms seems to create even more anxiety, and it just builds until you are feeling anxious all the time.

Usually this feeling will pass once you realise that the anxiety will not hurt you and that you can get through it. It is not going to last forever. Your body can't stay in this state forever, so you can be assured that you will begin feeling better (and probably soon!).

I recommend that you get some face-to-face support to learn and practice techniques for reducing anxiety. Do you have access to a school counsellor? If not, you could ask your doctor for a list of counsellors and therapists in your area. A counsellor can help you identify the underlying fears that contribute to the anxiety and to eliminate those fears.

Anxiety is caused by feelings of fear. The difference between fear and anxiety is that fear occurs when you are faced with imminent danger, while anxiety occurs when no actual danger is immediately present. By identifying the underlying beliefs that are causing the fear, you then have the opportunity to change those beliefs. Changing beliefs leads to lasting freedom from anxiety.

Without changing your beliefs, any relief from anxiety is likely to be temporary. Whether you use relaxation techniques, medication, or distraction, these methods help to relieve anxiety in the moment but do not necessarily address the underlying fears.
