A whole heap of events can be the cause of anxiety. When we are anxious we are inclined to imagine things are much worse than they really are. Anxiety causes faiblesse of our minds. We become consumed with worries whether they are large or small. And with anxiety there is usually a lot going on in our imaginations. Suddenly we suspect people who have been around us for years. We think they are treacherous and working against us. We don't trust anybody any more. Then we start to lose weight and let our appearances go to pot. Anxiety is more than an illness. It is a state of mind. One that we can't seem to get rid of. Anxious people wring their hands, give furtive glances about them as if they are being followed. In fact it can go so far as to make us believe we are alone in the world. Everybody we see is out to thwart us. It is a state of mind that is very difficult to shake off. It can be done but a lot of strength is needed from the mind itself which we believe is under attack.
The mind must prove it is in charge of the rest of the body. So it follows when it is weakened, the rest of the body will also suffer. The mind should rule us. When it is brought to a low level, outward signs in the body itself will show reactions. There are also the headaches which cause us to complain as do other pains. We suddenly see other people avoiding us and wonder why when it is simply that they are fed up with the complaining. We become no longer sought after by long-time friends. We may view them as creating a war on our minds. We seek a doctor's help. But is he competent in this particular problem? Psychiatrists are there to help us but somehow there's a sort of voodoo about them. Lots of people just think they are head shrinkers. In point of fact they are very competent in dealing with any psychiatric disorders - of which anxiety ranks as one. Psychiatry is a specialist treatment for the mind. Just like gynaecology or rheumatology. In many countries, only psychiatrists can prescribe narcotics, such as Tramadol, Fentenyl, Temesta and similar drugs that CAN cause hallucinations.
We must never be afraid to consult specialists in all fields of medicine. We then know we have gone to the top people with our problems.
When we are anxious we are weakened and often accidents happen to us that we would otherwise have been strong enough to avoid. Anxiety therefore takes its toll on the whole body. It should be recognized as a primary health problem and not swept under the carpet. It makes us behave entirely differently and we become another person, whom we don't recognize ourselves. It can change a friendly personality into one most want to avoid and that's one of its hazards: we lose friends at a time when we desperately are in need of them. It creates a terrible loneliness.
