Mental illness has long been stigmatized. But millions of Americans are affected every day by anxiety, which is the most common mental illness. Unfortunately, because of the embarrassment people often feel regarding mental health conditions, fewer than half of those who suffer with stress and anxiety will seek appropriate treatment. At LIL Medical, we want you to know that there is help available. You don’t have to spend your days mired in tension as you silently muddle through the difficulties anxiety and stress can impose on your life.
What is anxiety?
There are many factors that can impact a person’s chances of developing anxiety, and there are many different ways it can manifest. Anxiety disorders can develop because of a person’s genetics, personality, or even as the result of specific stressful events in their life. Many people who have anxiety may also develop co-occurring illnesses that can increase the severity of their anxiety symptoms and make it more difficult to treat. Social anxiety, general anxiety, situational stress, phobias, panic disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and even obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) are all manifestations of anxiety. The causes for each of these disorders vary based on the experience of the individual patient. There are some risk factors including childhood trauma and family history that can increase a person’s chances of developing anxiety symptoms.
How is stress different from anxiety?
Stress and anxiety will often exhibit some of the same symptoms, making it difficult to understand the differences. However, there are a few key things that can help you recognize whether you are experiencing stress or anxiety. Stress is a hormonal response within your body to outside stimulus. Often, stress is a reaction to a single or short-term situation. Stress can be both negative and positive, resulting in impressive amounts of work as your body creates more adrenaline, or keeping you awake at night for the same reason. Anxiety is a disorder that can be triggered by stress, but that does not dissipate once the outside stimuli have been resolved. Anxiety is a long-term problem that can have far-reaching negative effects on your interpersonal relationships and even your employment if left untreated.
