Anxiety treatment was sought by anchorwoman Robin Meade who suffered with panic attacks for quite some time. Take a look by copying and pasting the link below in your browser:
One statement I hear often from anxiety sufferers when they first walk into my center for anxiety treatment is "Why me? No one else seems to have anxiety or panic attacks. I look around at all of these confident people and feel so weak."
This is a widely held false belief.
Millions of people suffer with anxiety. Just take a look at the statistics in any given year (check out one of my earlier blog post for specifics).
Now consider this anchorwoman. For those of you who have seen her, doesn't she always appear very confident and poised? Many would assume that she has never had anxiety - certainly not panic attacks. Well, clearly that's an incorrect assumption.
If you're suffering with panic attacks, you are not alone. You also are not weak. Being "weak" has nothing to do with it.
Also, don't assume that based on how someone appears, that they do not or have not suffered with anxiety.
And then, do what this well-known anchorwoman did - dispense with your shame and get some help.
