Anxiety Disorder,Panic Attacks Struck Legendary Singer

by Dr. Craig April, Director of The April Center for Anxiety Attack Management - Los Angeles

Anxiety disorder,panic attacks struck legendary singer Joan Baez early in her career.

Take a look at this quote from a recent interview:

"Having achieved fame early, she remained in some ways naive, she says, recalling that the first time she saw the letters "SRO" in a headline about one of her concerts, she thought it meant "Sold Right Out." She also struggled for years with panic attacks, both offstage and on, sometimes stopping a performance in mid-song to go backstage and calm herself, then returning and picking up where she'd left off.

No one, she claims, ever seemed to want to talk about it. "I battled that for years, and nobody ever knew it.""

For the full interview, copy and paste the link below:

A couple of interesting points related to Joan Baez' disclosure:

1.) Although you might think everyone can tell that you are anxious, it is often not the case.

2.) Your anxiety doesn't have to stop you from taking action.

It appears Joan Baez' struggles with anxiety occurred back in the '60's when Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for anxiety wasn't readily available.

Luckily now, whether you're suffering publicly or privately, you can seek the right anxiety treatment to move past your anxiety and panic attacks. There is no shame in anxiety disorders or panic attacks - even legendary singers can struggle with them.

The key is in making the choice to get help so you can learn strategies and techniques to resolve your anxiety symptoms.
