Everyone experiences anxiety on and off in life. But you may have come to a place where feeling anxious, stressed, and worried has become the norm. Maybe you feel like a disaster, doom, and worst-case scenarios are always on your mind. From constant concerns about money, family, work, and the world in general, the stress and worry do not stop. This is not an uncommon feeling. Approximately 33.7 percent of Americans will have problematic anxiety at some point in their lives, and some researchers believe this number is closer to 50 percent.
If you experience anxiety, you may have symptoms such as acute or chronic fatigue, headaches, muscle tension, stiffness, and even debilitating pain, general aches and pains, difficulty swallowing or feeling like there is something stuck in your throat, trembling, uncontrollable twitching, irritability, hot and cold flashes, profuse sweating for no apparent reason, and lightheadedness or dizziness.
At Darling Psychology, we know that these symptoms are very debilitating, uncomfortable, and make your daily life tough. They take you away from activities that you enjoy and make situations that you used to easily manage an uphill climb. We take this seriously and provide you with superior treatments designed to neutralize anxiety and worry and get you back to feeling comfortable and in control of your life. More importantly, we give you space with time off work to practice and master skills that keep anxiety at bay. Once you are ready to reintegrate into work, with your new skills on board, you will be able to do so with confidence. We also help you through the California Short-Term Disability Insurance and Human Resources paperwork process so you can focus on lowering your worry and stress.
