One of the biggest fears of a lot of people with anxiety is loss. Be it of family members and loved ones or even themselves. First thing we should remember is we are not mad. Nor will we ever be mad. We are all highly intelligent people with a small problem called anxiety. The one thing I believe in is exposure therapy. Facing up to the fears. Fact is they might make you feel bad, but they can't seriously harm you. They are just a series of bad feelings and bad thoughts. Most of which we feed and make them become even stronger. It could all begin with you in a certain mood that is not good. Then you get a thought as yo why you are in this mood and then you react to this thought. You reaction brings on your symptoms. They are all entwined together. A knock on effect. If you can change the thought or the reaction the rest will fall into place for you. I am not saying it is easy. It can take time and hard work. You simply have to believe in yourself. That you can do this. Be ready to accept the odd setback along the road. They do happen. But we just have to get back up and continue to push forward. Taken it on face to face. Like saying ' you are never going to beat me '. No matter how bad you may feel, there is always a road back.
