Anxiety Neurosis - Out of the Darkness and into the Light

Aug 17, 2007
Before she was diagnosed with anxiety neurosis, Helen had no idea why she couldn't seem to "get it together". All around her people were going on with their lives, developing meaningful careers and starting families. "Because anxiety neurosis was ruling my life, I couldn't seem to move forward and do the things that would make my life more happy and meaningful."

"Finally my anxiety neurosis progressed to the point that I couldn't leave my house anymore and I cut off connections with my family and friends. My sister came over one afternoon and insisted that I see a therapist. That day changed my life forever."

Helen's therapist explained to her that anxiety neurosis is an illness that can cause an inability to adapt to one's environment.

Anxiety neurosis represents a psychiatric condition in which emotional distress or unconscious conflict is expressed through various physical, psychological and mental disturbances.

These disturbances may include: chest pain, not sleeping well, disturbing dreams, inability to concentrate on work, having difficulties to mingle with co-workers and family, feeling inferior to everybody.

Anxiety is experienced as a feeling of suspense, helplessness or alternating hope and despair together with excessive alertness.

People who suffer from anxiety neurosis may palpitate with more sweating and eat little or much. Anxiety makes them more irritable, which may be apparent through a frowned face and a gloomy look. They feel inferior in every activity. Many patients suffer from diarrhoea without the usual cause, easily misdiagnosed as IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). Adolescents experience loss of sexual derives such as impotence or premature ejaculation. Elderly people experience Hypertension. Anxious children experience bed-wetting.

People suffering from anxiety neurosis want to get better but can't find the coping skills to create a richer, more meaningful life.

Everyone has fear. The difference is how we use the fear. Abnormal fear basically begins with normal fear. But then it escalates to the point that it becomes huge. There are usually no logical or reasonable grounds for the level of fear that is being experienced.

If your anxiety neurosis has become so great that it interrupts your normal daily activities, it is important to seek help. If you are unable to keep up your normal appearances, if you can't work, if you avoid friends and family or if you have trouble eating and sleeping then you should talk to a mental health professional about your anxiety neurosis.

A trained therapist can help you deal with your anxiety neurosis and develop a course of treatment. The sooner you take action, the sooner you will emerge out of the darkness and into the light.
