Persevering in the Face of Medical Anxiety

AnxietyAnxiety is all too common nowadays. Though it’s most often rooted in biochemical imbalances within the body, those imbalances may not play a significant role whatsoever in your life until a challenging life event brings it to the forefront of your mind. One common life event that people often seek anxiety treatment for is anxiety from a medical diagnosis.

Whether you’re actively seeking out anxiety treatment or not, here are a few things you can do to improve your anxiety self-care:

Let Your Feeling Be Known

Expressing your feelings and letting them out is always an essential step in overcoming any form of mental distress or illness. Bottling up those emotions and leaving things unsaid often only serves to exacerbate those negative feelings that are swirling around inside. Once you’ve had time to adequately process and sit with those emotions, share your thoughts and feelings with those closest to you that you can trust. And if you’re not comfortable with that, you could also consider finding a support group to connect with those who may share similar diagnoses and experiences.

Focus on What You Can Do, Not What You Can’t

As it relates to anxiety in general (as well as depression), there is a tendency to focus on the negatives and all the things that may not be able to be achieved. This is especially true in the face of medical diagnoses that cause a radical shift in the lifestyle you once knew. However, even in the face of the most dire diagnoses, you have the strength to combat that medical anxiety by focusing on all the things you can still do. You can even think of creative ways to approach your favorite activities in a whole new way.

Turn To Healthy Coping Strategies

Lastly, it’s always essential to turn yourself towards healthy coping mechanisms that will actually help you in the long run. This can oftentimes be the most challenging part of struggling with anxiety, which is why the previous two sections are so immensely important. Whether you take up meditation and journaling to come to terms with your inner emotions or turn towards your faith or spirituality and seek out anxiety treatment, there are countless ways to deal with your anxiety healthily.
