Julie Miller's Mental Health Blog

From Mental Health Simplified at http://anxiety.mentalhealthsimplified.com:

“There are several types of anxiety disorders. They include:

  • panic attack or panic disorder (sudden anxiety that occurs without warning) with or without agoraphobia (fear of open spaces; not being able to leave your home)
  • specific phobias (many types of intense fear reactions of specific objects or situations, such as fear of spiders, flying, or heights)
  • social anxiety or social phobia (fear of being embarrassed in social situations)
  • generalized anxiety disorder (general feeling of anxiety most of the time)
  • obsessive-compulsive disorder (unwanted thoughts or behaviors that are repetitive and unnecessary)
  • post-traumatic stress disorder (anxiety associated with and that occurs after a stressful life event)”

If you have any of these concerns, help is available.  Each interferes, some more and some less, in daily life and achieving your goals.

You can contact me through my website and I can help you find an appropriate referral for your area.  Psychiatrists and therapists can treat anxiety disorders, and generally speaking are very nice people.  If you find a psychiatrist or therapist you don’t like, keep looking.  You have the right to be treated by someone you feel comfortable with.
