Anxiety & Helping Someone Cope.
I didn’t want to make it overwhelming or too long remember, so I kept it to the main points that benefit me greatly when I’m experiencing an attack.
40 million of Americans alone suffer with anxiety; it’s a horrid feeling when you know someone just wants to help you but you cannot even construct a simple sentence at the time, so please share this in hope that it benefits even just 1 person. Muchos love.
Dear Every Single Person I Know,
the number of people who suffer from anxiety and anxiety attacks is staggering. You probably know the warning sings of more dangerous things like heart attacks and stokes, and maybe even seizures. Hopefully you know what to do in the event of one of those possibly life threatening events! But I am here to say there are lots of things that happen just as often, if not more often, as those things. They’re just as common, so why do we never learn how to help someone through them? Read this and you’ll get the basics. It has some really great tips! Learn to care for all your fellow humans!
As a personal aside I would like to ask anyone reading this who interacts with me while having an anxiety attack to please never touch me. If I need a comforting touch, I’ll ask, or more likely, since I tend to clam up during anxiety attacks because I am often afraid that I am not getting enough air, I might reach for your hand or lean against you. In that case then please give me a caring touch, just no hugs or arms around me, I will feel smothered.
Thanks for your time and understanding!
