If you are diagnosed with a particular anxiety disorder, learn as much as you can about it and ways to treat it. This helps to ‘de-mystify’ the illness, making it less scary or confusing as well as helping you to choose the best treatment. It is often helpful to read other people’s stories about how they coped with the same problem.
Ask for help. Don’t let misconceptions about anxiety disorders stop you from seeking help. Asking for help is not a sign of weakness. It demonstrates self respect and caring for your health.
