Modern day diseases
You break a leg or arm, visit a doctor, he patches things up, and you are pretty much good to go. Sure, you wait a while, and maybe it hurts and itches during warm nights. But it all ends within a few months, depending on how serious the fracture is.
But having a fractured mind is a totally different thing. And just to be clear, I shall use the word “mind” in this review, but that term can also mean “brain”, “soul”, “state of being”… There are few problems involving the diseases that plague our modern society.
First and foremost, you can’t see your disease. You can see a fractured arm, bacteria or virus under a microscope, but you can’t see depression or anxiety. It is simply impossible. Sure, you can do brain scans, but you cannot observe these states on mere chemical and neurological level.
Secondly, there are various solutions to your problem. Most people visit psychologists and psychiatrists, have sessions and deal with their problems with professionals. While this method works for some people, a large portion of psychiatrists are far from being professionals.
Often times they fail to cure their patients and simply deal with the symptoms, prescribing pills that only manage the condition.
Thirdly, people with modern diseases (like depression or anxiety) don’t know how to deal with it. Moreover, they live in denial and refuse to tackle their disease from the start.
The constant anxiety
I’ve found that the most important thing is the acceptance. We perceive these diseases as unnatural as if human beings shouldn’t suffer from them. I guarantee you that they are perfectly normal, just as it is perfectly normal to catch a cold.
Naturally, they aren’t the same, but it is the same premise. Also, most people think that they are alone with their disease. They don’t get the support from their friends and family, which makes them feel like strangers in the world. This is really problematic because this kind of behavior can only amplify the problem, whether the person is struggling with depression or anxiety.
But to deal with anxiety, one must know be able to articulate the current state of his mind. For example, anxiety is very hard to explain. I would say that the closest thing to anxiety is fear. However, fear is something that is very evident. You can be afraid that you are going to fail your exam or you are afraid of some kind of animal.
But unlike fear, anxiety has no specific object. You are constantly shivering, afraid of the future, of the unknown. Anxiety can present itself when you have to choose between A and B, afraid that both choices will have negative consequences. And the more you delay the choice, the bigger the anxiety becomes.
Most psychological disorders are followed by panic attacks. The worst thing about them is their timing; they can happen anywhere at any time. However, many people experienced panic attacks in their lives because panic attacks aren’t uncommon things.
Taking into consideration the modern way of living, the constant pressure, the stress and the overall insecurity add up and build up over time. But if people already suffer from some form of psychological disorder, these panic attacks are unfortunately amplified.
Furthermore, they happen almost on daily basis. The thing is that panic attacks negatively impact one’s life. You lose confidence in your own ability to bear the everyday pressure. Suddenly, you mystify the panic attacks (unintentionally), you expect it like a child expects Boogyman in the dark.
It is far from being a pleasant experience.
How do you deal with these things
More and more people are starting to use online CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy). That’s right, online. Moreover, health organizations worldwide recommend CBT as the treatment of choice for both anxiety and mood disorders. More importantly, most patients are putting good reviews for this kind of therapy.
Indeed, many studies now show that online CBT is as effective as face to face therapy. But, it is important to find the right kind of therapy. You can’t just dive into things like this, and this is exactly why I wrote this review, to give people an excellent online CBT.
It combines various mediums, from reading to listening, and will certainly help you to overcome your problems; I’m talking about CBT4PANIC.
