Anxiety is a painful strain on the mind that usually surfaces when a person feels threatened, ill, or concerned and anticipating the worst. When a person has a mental illness, chemical imbalance or a medical condition then stress can lead to phobias, panic attacks, and trigger anxiety.
Anxiety is an abnormal overwhelming sense of fear. Sometimes anxiety is marked with physiological symptoms including tension, increase in heart rates and sweating.
When this happens, a person will often doubt their capacity to manage with the risk and view the risk as an obstruction that is bigger than life. Anxiety is a form of stress that we all want to avoid, unless some benefit follows suit.
Phobia is another stressor and stress that causes a person to overstress a problem, however when a person has phobia they will overstress usually illogical and mysterious fears that are most times object related.
Similar to a photophobia type that has no tolerance for light, the phobia has minimal if any tolerance to stress and its stressors. Now if this is an ongoing problem then we need medical and psychological experts to help deal with the problem, rather than learning stress management techniques exclusively.
Panic is similar to anxiety since it is an unsuspected overwhelming fear. For instance if a person is suddenly at risk of loosing their home due to financial difficulties, he or she may panic, acting out on emotions rather than thoughts. When a person has Bipolar, paranoia personality type, or a paranoid personality type this people are often panic-stricken.
Paranoid personality and Paranoia personality
The downside is the paranoid personality and paranoia personality types hallucinate, feed off illusions, voices, and delusions. Now we have a bigger problem and it is obvious medications is the only solution to help the patient cope with his or her stress.
Of course, stress management could benefit the person, however with the paranoia and paranoid types it is often difficult to get the person in stress management therapy since they believe the world is out to get them.
The paranoid types often require hospitalization throughout their lifetime, since stress triggers them to act out on their symptoms. Although I gave, you brief details of these personality types I think it is also important to help those of us that are dealing with these types of personalities to learn stress management coping skills.
The paranoid, paranoia types can drive a person insane. These types are major stressors that cause us stress. So, now we need to help those that are dealing with these types to learn stress management techniques to survive the rocky storm ahead.
Effect of Anxiety, Phobia and Panic
With an availability of guidance, persons with this extent of stress will find some comfort in stress management. An ongoing therapy works best if the person has phobia, panic attacks, and anxiety coupled with other mental ill symptoms.
Most likely, rather more than not the person will need medication to help them cope with the symptoms and stress. A person with this level of stress is subject to suicidal thoughts and tendencies.
As the person is inclined to act on impulses and emotions rather than thoughts, tendencies can be more life threatening. When a person is acting on impulses and backed by emotions the person will lack the ability to see through the problem sometimes, since the mind is cluttered.
On the other hand, thoughts can be just as or more dangerous than tendencies. There is an obvious danger of suicide, if the person is giving considerable thought to suicide and planning out a strategy to die, while reasoning negatively.
If a person is going on through such fears, he needs mental health support, medications and stress management techniques that will help him to deal with his fears.
