Product Description

How To Help Someone Who Suffers With Anxiety Problems

I have a close friend who suffers from anxiety from time to time. In the book, "Helping Someone With an Anxiety Disorder," I will share with you some very important information on how to deal with the mood swings that close friends, family members or spouses may encounter while interacting with someone who battles with anxiety.

Of all the things I am going to share in this book, the most important is what I will reveal now:

Don’t lose yourself by getting overly focused on the moods and actions of the person you love and care about who is suffering with anxiety issues. You must not get so intertwined with the other person that your life revolves around everything he or she does.

If you have regular interactions with the person suffering from panic and anxiety attacks, consider seeking professional help for yourself. One of the things that has helped me tremendously is being involved in support group meetings that are centered around learning relationship skills. One of my favorite 12-step groups is designed to help people who are codependent.

Take great care of yourself. Schedule plenty of time away from your friend or relative. Periodically be selfish with your time with the intent of enjoying your life apart from the person who is ill with anxiety. I’ve found that being involved in church, exercising on a regular basis, and investing time in my hobbies has really helped me not get too intertwined in my friend’s illness.

Anxiety Disorder is a serious problem and it affects a great number of people. It is a condition separate from a normal panic episode, where a person is suddenly worried by something; anxiety when it is a disorder is born from irrational triggers. They are often trivial and non-threatening but are perceived as ominous by an incapable patient.

Depending on the development of the condition, a patient could very well be dealing with something that is way beyond their capacity. As an outsider, you hold the responsibility of filling gaps and providing assistance where there is insufficiency. When a patient is your close friend, your family member or your spouse—his condition sometimes automatically becomes yours, because his problems are translated to your life, as well.

A Look Inside Of This Kindle Book About Helping Someone Suffering With Anxiety

As an outsider, it is not going to be easy to watch someone you care for, as he or she slowly suffers the symptoms of anxiety disorder. This is most especially true if the problem is already damaging to the daily life of the individual. Anxiety has the tendency to overcome a person’s life, so that his or her daily life is affected. At its most intense conditions, anxiety can disable a person and keep them from functioning. It is your role, as an outsider to provide guidance to the “lost sheep” if it is necessary. Help is essential in any case of anxiety disorder because the people are often helpless and hopeless. Your role as an outsider is to watch over the recovery of the patient, and your assistance should be patterned to the personal needs of the patient.

Having anxiety issues myself there was some stuff that I wish my loved ones knew but it was all just general stuff. Worth a read but do more research if you are a caregiver or loved one of someone with anxiety issues on any level.

I have been getting so frustrated with a friend of mine who was just diagnosed with an anxiety disorder. For months she has been acting strange and I thought it had something to do with me. Well, it doesn't. This Kindle book really has helped me understand more about my friend's anxiety disorder and gave me tips on how I can be helpful to her. There are many things I learned from this Kindle book about helping someone who has anxiety. There was one thing in-particular though, I learned that my friends anxiety issues have nothing to do with me. Before reading this Kindle book, I was always thinking that I'd done something to cause my friend to be anxious, not true. I am not responsible for my friends behaviors in any way, shape or form. There are so many good things in this Kindle book on understanding what an anxiety disorder is and how to deal with it. This is an excellent book!

When you know someone with anxiety, I know that it is especially difficult to help them. Sometimes they know what they want and sometimes they don’t. Sometimes they know and do not want to say what they want in fear of rejection. Something that should not have to be said is this: do not try to fix them. This is something that I am glad that this ebook covers. I am also glad that this ebook covers the fact that anxiety in any form is not something trivial. It is a real thing. Also just remember not to fill too many gaps in the anxious person’s life because you can become a crutch for that person. It is also a good idea to go through the different age groups, which this ebook does. Each age group has different stressors. Thank you so much for writing this book.

This book breaks down anxiety with a description, how it might affect people from different walks of life and age groups. How to manage the anxiety and what may trigger it. It also gives loads of references to follow up with if you chose to not use a professional or what to do if you want professional assistance.

This is a great starting point to understand what a family member or friend is going through. Wish I had this book years ago! The reference list alone is amazing and you can find so much info within this book itself. Nicely done!

I am keeping this book nearby for I have someone who suffers from anxiety. It is an anxiety relief for me to have this at my fingertips.

This book is all about helping someone that has an anxiety disorder or panic attacks. It has a pretty straightforward explanation of panic attacks, what they are, their symptoms, and what you can do to try to calm a loved one down when they are experiencing one.

There are also additional specialized tips for different groups of people, including teenagers, college students, and more. Each group also has reasons listed as to why they would have anxiety issues.

A list of helpful books to read is mentioned as well as how to figure out when and how to seek out professional help.

I would recommend this book to anyone with a loved one that has an anxiety disorder or panic attacks, so they can know what to do if they are put in a situation, and people that think they may have an anxiety disorder, so they can seek out help.
