anxiety-depression

If you’ve ever had a bout of anxiety before, you don’t need anyone to tell you how upsetting and even debilitating it can be. Obviously, depression obviously comes alongside anxiety too, but it is possible to suffer from just the latter alone.

You don’t have to be having major anxiety attacks to feel like you are dealing with an anxiety disorder, and it’s quite a common issue for the general population of the world to feel anxiety to a large degree from time to time.

Having said that, what happens when anxiety becomes an almost permanent part of your life? What do you do when those dark thoughts of ‘what if’ become so crippling that you start worrying uncontrollably about things that haven’t even happened yet, and probably will never happen at all?

Generalized Anxiety Disorder in New York is a very real issue, and here at Trifecta Heath we recognize this completely. We have a range of treatment options available for anyone who gets in touch with one of our Manhattan offices, and under the expert and watchful eye of NYC Psychiatrist Dr Edward Fruitman, we aim to get you back on the right path, away from uncontrollable thinking, ‘what ifs’, overthinking, panic, and general anxiety overall.

There is a big difference between anxiety and simple worrying. We all worry from time to time, this is normal, and it is actually a coping mechanism from natured, designed to help us recognize a potential threat and deal with it accordingly. Of course, nature doesn’t always accurately recognize a real threat, from a perceived one, and when you start to worry uncontrollably about a perceived threat, you’re stepping into overthinking territory.

Anyone who suffers from an anxiety disorder tends to be a chronic over-thinker, and stopping this process is extremely difficult to say the least. A lot of cognitive behavioral therapy is needed in these cases, to help the sufferer recognize that the worst case scenario is very unlikely to happen, and even if it does, there are ways to cope with it, and obviously, nothing is ever as bad as what we think it’s going to be.

You can’t tell this to an anxiety sufferer however, not until they are ready to address the problem and put in real time and effort to conquer the problem.

Is someone who suffers from anxiety always going to suffer from it? Probably to a small degree, yes. When anxiety spikes however, it can control life and it can be extremely unpleasant. The idea is to prevent these spikes from happening, by teaching the sufferer mindset tricks, changing the way they deal with issues that are potential triggers, and putting into place coping mechanisms for the future. There are prescription-based treatment options which can work alongside this too, and these work together to create a much more balanced sense of harmony, and kick out those troublesome thoughts for good.
