If you are like most people, starting anything new is stressful, simply because it is new. Reaching out for help is even more stressful. It is the hardest part. Once you get started, it becomes easier and you’ll be glad you did.
That’s the way I remember it. I’ve been where you are now. I knew I needed help but making that first call was scary. I had my doubts. I thought maybe I just needed to weather the storm a while longer and everything would be okay. I was only fooling myself. I called and received the help I needed and I’m glad I did.
YOU SEEM TO BE BARELY HANGING ON.
You could be struggling with high functioning anxiety.
Anxiety is best known for presenting itself in the form of panic attacks or mood swings, but it can also just smolder below the surface. Even though you struggle inwardly, you continue to function day-to-day, so that those around you may not know what you are going through.
Does This Sound Like You?
- I’m a success in my career but I’m failing in my personal relationships. My relationships on the job work much better for me than my personal relationships.
- I’m not sure if I’m being driven by ambition or my anxiety. I seem to be driven more by my fear, doubt and insecurity than by my ambition. It’s a constant drain on me.
- I always feel the need to always go the extra mile. Is that so wrong? I’m driven to always go the extra mile with my to-do lists. That extra mileage is becoming exhausting and unmanageable.
- When the unpredictable and unplanned comes my way, it feels overwhelming at times. When the unpredictable and unplanned comes my way, I fear losing control, triggering a possible avalanche of anxiety.
- My mind seems to be preoccupied a lot of the time. I often seem to feel guilty about the past, and/or fearing the future, missing out on the present. I seem so preoccupied at times; it can make concentration difficult. Often a friend or family member will say to me in the middle of a conversation, “Hey, what did I just say?” or “Hello? Is anyone home ?” I hate that when it happens!
- I can’t seem to enjoy my days off. My mind doesn’t accept them. I could never just sit down to read a book, or listen to soothing music or take a walk in the woods to unwind. My body might slow down, but my mind can’t. When I try that just frustrates me, making things worse.
- I wonder if I’m becoming too sensitive to my surroundings. Minor irritations are becoming a major stress for me. Things like obnoxious background noises or unknown smells can drive me crazy. I will “go off” for no sensible reason or jump from being startled at the slightest things.
- I’m feeling more and more alienated from others who just don’t seem to understand my feelings. I’m beginning to isolate myself from other people. I’m beginning to get looks from them as if something is wrong with me. I can’t seem to hide it anymore.

Or at other times you have difficulty breathing, have constant muscle tension, struggle with excessive sweating, have trouble concentrating or just have a feeling of impending doom and gloom. When your anxiety disrupts your daily routine on a regular basis and the manageable becomes more and more difficult as time passes, you may need to reach out for help.
