anxiety disorder

“I always thought I was just a worrier. I thought my personality was such that I would worry for the smallest of the things and get nervous & tensed. It was only later, when I met a psychologist I discovered that I was suffering from Generalized Anxiety Disorder.” – Anonymous

Persistent, excessive and unrealistic worrying about everyday things are the key features of Generalized anxiety disorder. People who have generalized anxiety disorder experience exaggerated levels of worry and tension even when there is no reason to worry about. They are constantly expecting the worse to happen and preparing themselves for it. By doing this, they feel that they are equipping themselves, however, it’s the contrary.

  • Psychological therapy – The clinical psychologists uses psychological therapies such as that of cognitive behavior therapy
  • Medication – When the illness is of severe levels and impairs or interferes with one’s daily life, they prescribe medication such as the antidepressants called Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs)
  • Neurofeedback – This form of neurotherapy was born amid the current technological revolution. This therapy facilitates changes in the brain wave patterns and regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) activation without giving any form of electrical impulses to the client.

With early identification and intervention, many people benefit from it and are able to lead normal & productive lives. However, in some cases, treatments may need to be continued for a long time and there may be periods when the symptoms worsen.
