Misconceptions About Anxiety Disorders And Facts

Misconceptions About Anxiety Disorders


We often hear people say I have anxiety or I'm stressed out this is something hard to deal with. People with anxiety have probably experienced this fact which is something that's quite hard to deal with. Today we are going to talk about the misconception about anxiety disorder. 


When you have anxiety you feel quite a lot of the time that people don't understand and that people think it's something different than actual.

Which is really difficult and quite crippling thing to deal with and I don't think people always understand a big part of who you are.

 The only difference between somebody who is not understanding your anxiety just because they've never been taught about mental illness or they've never had it in their life. 

Also maybe they've never known anybody that has it just because they've never encountered anxiety or depression before.




So let's see what are the misconceptions about anxiety disorders that are taking over people who are dealing with.




Anxiety Facts

Misconceptions-


#1 Anxiety isn't a big deal

It's obvious that we all feel anxious sometimes and that's not an actual anxiety disorder, cause anxiety is something different it actually impairs our ability to work in our daily life.

Many people think that anxiety is not a big deal but in reality, they don't know how anxiety can affect your life and make it worse.




#2 Anxiety is not a real illness


Some anxiety depends on the situation, for example, we often experience it before having exams or job interviews or something when we gonna try something new.

But when the symptoms are real and physical such as dizziness, muscles tension, trouble breathing, heart palpitation, insomnia,  etc and you have the same feeling for more than months or year then you have encountered with real mental illness. (which is treatable though).





#3 Anxiety and Panic attacks are same


Both panic attacks and anxiety are both different to deal with.


Anxiety is a set of future fears in which you are more anxious about the next 5 minute or 5 hours or 5months/ years and it can exist for long if it not get treated on time.

Whereas Panic attack is a sudden uncontrollable fear and sensations that you feel. Panic attacks can be for last few minutes or for an hour.



#4 Anxiety disorders are not very common 



Millions of us live with some form of anxiety disorders and it's not something so unfamiliar that you have to treat yourself as alone who only does.




#5 We all are introverts


Have you ever been called introvert? Or, scared of big crowds?
And this is the misconception that many people think a person who suffers from anxiety is an introvert or doesn't like to get socialize because yes maybe a person having a social anxiety.


But social anxiety is totally different from generalized anxiety in which people actually want a part of the big groups.



#6 Anxiety  disorders are caused by stress


People often talk that anxiety disorders are caused by stress so reducing stress could help you to feel better and that's really what most people do when they feel a lot of anxiety they try to get stress out of their lives.

The causes of all the anxiety disorders are pretty complicated it's usually a combination of genetics or your inheritance.


#7 Switching negative  thoughts with positive thoughts



Maybe you have tried once this technique of fighting negative thoughts with positive ones but you failed because that doesn't actually work and this is something called paradoxical.



Unwanted thoughts tend to get stronger and more repetitive and in the result, your anxiety won't be going down and then you start getting mad at yourself. 


And on and on the inside of your head  it goes round and round and you can't actually make yourself  stop thinking something if you just stop  for a moment


#8  Push yourself

Another misconception is- to fix your anxiety you just have to push yourself a 'lil bit and things won't be the same but this is a  really offensive way to save somebody I guess. So if you have a friend or loved one who is going through anxiety never try to say these stuff  



Though people think that encouraging their friends or their loved ones or family members could help and I also personally support people by encouraging them. The thing you have to understand is, do not put unnecessary pressure on them it could be the worst thing that you ever do.

Pressure also plays a role to make your anxiety worse. People with anxiety can't deal with situations when they are suppressed by many things.




#9  Antidepressants will only make you worse

Hey! Antidepressant works best and nowadays there are many antidepressants available that you can take as prescribed. I will always encourage people who are going through anxiety to try antidepressants and do not listen to people who have never had an anxiety or depression.



#10  You won't get better unless they go through therapy 



You might have been to loads of therapists in the past and many of them were really not helpful but only had made you feel worse. Well, I don't mean that you shouldn't try therapy. In fact, you must try once. 



 But here what I wanna explain is you can help yourself by doing the stuff that makes you feel better with a non-pressure environment and setting a goal in your life and focusing on yourself.




#11  Therapy for anxiety- It's gonna take forever


Many people still have this misconception that therapy for anxiety is going to take them forever but the therapy which is called CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and it is the most effective therapy used now to treat anxiety disorder it's not gonna take long or forever. 



#12 Medications are the only cure


As above mentioned CBT is now being most effective and helpful therapy for anxiety disorder, so we can state that medications are not the only way to get rid of anxiety disorders.


       So, those were the 12  misconceptions about anxiety disorders.


So, let me know if you ever had to face any of these misconceptions in your life.
