In today’s article I'm going to be talking about how to deal with a person who is suffering from an anxiety disorder. A lot of people are going through anxiety disorder, and it has begun to affect their daily lives from relationships to careers and many more. If you have any person with such symptoms, your duty is to support them and help them through such situations by being as nice as possible without judging them.

The first thing you want to realize is that the person who is experiencing or suffering from anxiety disorder did not choose their condition willingly and might have been brought about by some unconscious behaviour patterns or thought patterns but most likely they did not wake up one day and say I think I want to suffer from an anxiety disorder.

The second thing that you want to remember is not to get angry or direct your frustration toward that person for their condition as it'll only make them worse, and it will alienate you from them. You also don't want to chastise that person for their condition or make fun of them or somehow make them feel guilty for the position that they're in.

As the time comes that the person undertakes therapy and other ways to heal themselves as they undertake that process of exposure therapy which involves exposing themselves to situations that once brought about unnecessarily high anxiety and they confront it and they face it head-on, it must be done in sufficiently small steps for it to achieve its efficacy.

So, the thing to remember is as they're undertaking this exposure is not to rush them or pressure them into taking extra steps going further than they're comfortable with. They must take it at their own pace. It's very important otherwise it's just going to create more anxiety and it may even set them back from their goals.

Be supportive of the person. Any moral support that they get is always good, so it's also important to maintain a positive attitude. Try to limit any negativity around them. Throw away negative behaviour or negative speech and encourage them to believe that everything's gonna work out and that they're going to overcome their disorder.

So just remember to encourage the person but don't push too hard. If you push too hard, you’ll push them into another panic attack. The goal is to desensitize them to situations that once brought about unnecessarily high anxiety. The goal is- as soon as they have a panic attack in a particular situation that tends to bring such attacks episodes, they need to reassess that situation and the goal is to associate those situations that one sparked about anxiety with feelings of peace and calm.

Anxiety is also a kind of disorder that was really hard to control then we must be aware that those people suffering this kind of illness they need our support and understanding for them

Some people hide it actually and do not like to talk about their anxiety. It is very common in Asian household not to show feelings because that is the culture. They just shrug it away and call it a phase. I do hope that this culture will improve.

I completely agree with you dear, the people who have anxiety disorder, it effect on their daily lives. With support and help them, without judging, we can do them the most favors. Having a positive attitude, and limit any negativity can help them overcome their disorder.

Honestly, we shouldn't judge people by their situations. Most people going through this beef someone supportive to be by their side. I'm talking about someone who will love them with their condition. Such people should not be isolated. We should let them mingle with us so that they'll be fine. We shouldn't just neglect them because of what they are going through

I understand all you said, and you're right.

Random question- would you stay with me if I told you I was going through anxiety disorder and depression?

Some people have the guts to tell their friends or loved ones because they might see them as weak but it will display on their faces and only a few will notice the sudden change in them.

A lot of people are going through this and a lot are losing their mind especially in this period of crypto dip. What we need do is support them and stay by their side without judging them so they can get over stress and anxiety.

Indeed moral support is the best cure for those people undergoing anxiety, depression and etc.. although it's really hard to deal with them too. Some of them are able to control their emotions already and tend to manipulate people around them with it.. which is not very good as well.
