Suck It Up Buttercup

“Calm mind brings inner strength and self-confidence, so that’s very important for good health.”

—Dalai Lama

Many of us experience periods of anxiousness or nervousness. For someone who suffers from anxiety, they experience prolonged feelings of worry and anxiousness, which are often related to experiences that we all experience, but there is something within them that does not allow them to work through, overcome, or cope and adapt in the same manner as someone who does not suffer from anxiety. In episode 9, Suck it Up Buttercup, Elaina and Tracy discussed the various types of anxiety disorders and share common statements to avoid saying to someone who suffers from anxiety. 

There are different types of anxiety disorders that people face such as Social Anxiety, General Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Phobias, Panic Disorders, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Elaina said, sometimes we face anxiety due to a specific situation or fear like some people have a fear of some events, animals, or spiders. Elaina shared a childhood memory linked to her arachnophobia. When I was in the 4th or 5th grade, a spider dropped down from the ceiling and stopped right in front of my face. 

With General Anxiety Disorder (GAD), it doesn't have anything particular to be worried about. You are worrying when you sleep and when you’re awake about anything and everything.

Social Anxiety Disorders is overwhelming anxiety and excessive self-consciousness in everyday social situations. It’s the fear of being judged, humiliated, and in some cases rejected. 

Panic Disorders, unexpected and repeated episodes of intense fear accompanied by physical symptoms that may include chest pain, heart palpitations, shortness of breath, dizziness, or abdominal distress. Tracy shared her experience with panic attacks. It felt like I was having a heart attack which made it worst. Sometimes the worrying about having another panic attack can be worse than the actual panic attack. 

Regardless of what we are or have experienced, these issues do not define us. I am not my anxiety, and it’s something I cope through every day. I am more than my disorder.
