Stress and anxiety may just be symptoms, but they are often highly distressing, and even experienced as painful. A mental health professional can help, and the first step is often reaching out for therapy. Just knowing you have an appointment with a mental health professional can be scary, but it is also often a step that makes you feel like you have grabbed a lifeline. Anxiety, depression, obsessive thoughts are warning signs that something is wrong, either in your present or in your past. Don't ignore them. Research suggests that even sharing your thoughts or worries with a close friend or trusted family member, can ease some of your distress. So perhaps start there, but remember, mental health professionals have spent years of training to learn to understand and help, and we can make a difference in your life. www.stress-resilience.com
