Too often, the responses that result from anxiety disorders and/or traumatic experiences are classified as mental illness. We talk about anxiety disorders and post-traumatic stress disorder. That word - "disorder" - leads many people to believe that they are broken, damaged, abnormal, or ill. The word "disease" is thrown around, leading to additional despair and distress.
It's important to understand that the sensations, thoughts, and feelings you are experiencing, are a NORMAL part of being human! These are learned responses resulting from your past experiences. Feeling afraid or anxious is normal and to be expected. Why then, do we call these illnesses and disorders? Fear-based responses to anxiety and trauma may be driving your life in directions you do not like. Recognizing these responses as simply learned responses can help provide the confidence you need to start to make changes.
