Anxiety Disorder versus Having a Bad Day

Suffering from Anxiety Disorder versus having a bad day is largely a matter of how you handle the normal, non-catastrophic peaks and valleys of your everyday life.Anxiety Disorder versus Having a Bad Day

We live in a world filled with pressure…finances, our jobs, our families. and more. Anxiety Disorder is an ongoing medical condition which must be diagnosed and treated. Only your doctor is qualified to recognize your symptoms and discuss the most effective ways of dealing with them.

If you have a bad day, it’s a bad day…nothing more or less. Sporadic, incidental stress-inducing situations do not necessarily mean that you are suffering with Anxiety Disorder. The determining factor is how you deal with these situations when they arise, and your overall mood and sense of well-being (or lack of it) when there is not a dramatic “event” occurring.

If you generally approach life with a positive, confident attitude, situational stress is something that happens in the moment and dissipates as you gain increasing confidence in your ability to deal with it.

On the other hand, if you feel a sense of hopelessness, that you are powerless, that the odds are against you or that something is “not quite right”…a sense of “impending doom” that is not supported by your current circumstances…you would be well served by making a visit to your doctor so that you can share these emotions.
