Step one in the recover process is realizing the power to heal is inside and it is waiting to do its magic. The sufferer simply must learn how to let this power go to work.


Often anxiety disorders come about with alcohol or substance abuse. However, this doesn't have to be so. This is evidenced by the fact that many children suffer from anxiety disorders. Old or young, whatever race, color or creed, anxiety disorders play no favorites. They can strike anyone.


Anxiety is a term that covers much territory. It is used to describe fears and phobias. However, to the sufferer of anxiety, the worst part is it is so bewildering. It brings on physical manifestations that would make anyone feel he is suffering a heart attack or a stroke. Much of the time, the suffer may not know what has hit him.


In short, anxiety disorders steal a person's life because he can no longer behave or act normally. The sufferer can no longer make plans, because his life has become centered around anxiety. An anxiety sufferer fears these terrible feelings he has been experiencing, but even more, he fears that the worst has not yet happened and must prepare for it. Whatever it may be.


Many times a sufferer of an anxiety disorder will find himself at the emergency room thinking that some horrible physical condition has beset him. However rarely will very much help be found there as the suffer is usually sent home and told, "It's only nerves." Even though the sufferer has complained to the doctor about dizziness, lightheadedness and maybe palpitations or perhaps headaches. The doctor will usually just prescribed rest.


For the person with the anxiety disorder, there is hope. Anxiety disorders can be cured. The difficult part is finding someone who really understands what an anxiety disorder is all about. A doctor may prescribe different medications, which will help the sufferer tolerate anxiety disorders, but the cure can only come from inside the sufferer. Anxiety disorders are like a storm that has to run its course and if let to do so it will go away.


The villain in this whole anxiety story is adrenaline. Adrenaline in the body of the sufferer of anxiety is running wild. The sufferer has become overly sensitive to any sort of stimuli and the first step to being cured is for the sufferer to realize this. He must realize that there's nothing insurmountable and that every horrible manifestation of the whole illness is caused by too much adrenaline.


Adrenaline responds to fright or flight. In other words, fighting something or running away from it. An anxiety disorder causes adrenaline to flow though the body without cause. This makes the sufferer's heart beat faster and do all those things a human would do when fighting or running away.


The complication is that the sufferer has now become afraid of the feelings the adrenaline is causing him to experience and so, more adrenaline starts pumping.


The cure takes a certain amount of time but it is available and it will happen. The sufferer has to take heart and realize that he has found the cure once he realizes that it's time to stop fearing the havoc adrenaline has been ravaging in his or her body, and he will no longer let it seize control of his life.
