Therapy for Anxiety in Pasadena, MD

You Don’t Feel Yourself

Just when things are going well, you are overcome with worry and fear. Your thoughts get in the way of taking the next step. So you shut down and nothing changes. 

Maybe you notice that you are frequently experiencing rapid heart rate, a sense of dread, or your stomach is always causing you problems. This is not you! You know what it feel like to feel better and you want that back.

You notice yourself feeling restless or irritable around most people. Your ability to concentrate is bad, making those day-to-day tasks a challenge.

You feel alone and isolated.

Avoiding things that you once took pleasure in. People in your support system don’t understand what’s going on and you can’t describe it to them.

Or maybe you are noticing intense fear for things that never scared you before. The thought of having to do something that your fearful of paralyzes you, so you don’t try new things.

Your hopes and dreams have changed so much because of your anxiety that you don’t know who you are anymore. You want the old you back, but you don’t know how to get there.
