Unfortunately, this can lead to relationship problems

Those who suffer from a diagnosable anxiety disorder can experience prolonged periods of worry or fear that don’t seem to go away.

Did you know an estimated 40 million Americans over the age of 18 suffer from some type of anxiety disorder? If you suffer from anxiety, or love someone who does, it doesn’t have to stop you from enjoying a happy, healthy relationship.

You Need Help?

We invite you to take our test – and determine whether or not you’ve got an issue. If you do, read on, and consider contacting us to guide you through steering your life back to normal.

Here are some things to keep in mind if you or your significant other is living with anxiety – and how to keep your relationship healthy anyway.

  • Anxiety can trick you or your partner into thinking you do not really have true feelings for each other, even if you do.
  • It might try to prevent you from spending time together, as some people with anxiety struggle to follow through with plans or engage in spontaneous activities.
  • It might be hard to talk to your SO about your anxiety, or understand how the other person’s anxiety makes them feel. It is often difficult for people with anxiety to bring up and explain their seemingly irrational worries and fears.

The best thing you can do for your relationship is tell your partner what you need from them – or ask them what you can do to help. Sometimes something as simple as sending a text that says “I’m here, I love you, it’s going to be OK” can make a big difference.

Relationships are challenging, period. But for people with anxiety disorders even simple life events can trigger a major attack. Small arguments can quickly turn into blowouts, dates can feel like torture, self-doubt can swallow you whole and all the while it may seem impossible to get your partner to understand – and that’s if you have the courage to say something.

There is no need to let anxiety stand in the way of doing the things you desire with the ones you care about! You CAN face your anxiety head-on and share the experience with your partner.

Remember to include healthy food, regular exercise and the support of people who understand your specific challenges and you’ll be on your way to happily ever after in no time.

Did you know an addiction can be caused by a mental disorder?

One of the primary reasons that mental disorders and substance abuse so often go hand-in-hand is that drugs and alcohol can provide an escape from the pressures of mental health problems. Self-medicating is surprisingly common: you’re not alone.

But unlike real, effective, long-term solutions, such as medication and detoxification in a treatment center, drugs and alcohol won’t amount to effective treatment.

If you suspect that your loved one is suffering from addiction, then take our free 3 minute assessment.
