Anxiety and Depression Treatment Centers in Hawaii
December 12, 2022
Anxiety and depression may not be as visible as alcoholism or substance abuse, but their effects are still highly damaging, both to you and your loved ones. The thoughts resulting from anxiety may paralyze you, keep you from doing simple everyday tasks, or prevent you from socializing. People diagnosed with depression may be existing in a state where everything feels hopeless, joyless, and believing that nothing changes for the better.
These feelings affect your daily life, particularly when it comes to caring for yourself. For example, you may neglect hygiene, mealtimes, or exercising. Not only are anxiety and depression lifelong conditions, but co-occurring disorders may worsen them. Fortunately, you can always look to anxiety and depression treatment centers in Hawaii for help.
How to Tell if You’re Dealing With Anxiety
Anxiety plagues millions of adults worldwide. Medical professionals believe it can be genetic in nature, a result of trauma or lifestyle, or a combination of those. Whatever the cause, help is available. People who are suffering from anxiety are intensely affected by fears, worries, and sensitivities that feel out of their control. Both adults and children with Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) have difficulty with daily life, and in some cases the difficulty is so severe that it makes leading a successful and meaningful life impossible.
GAD causes patients to experience dreadful thoughts, which can negatively affect their will to do regular tasks. As a result of anxiety symptoms, patients will expect worrisome outcomes, whether it’s about family, relationships, health, or other vital aspects of their lives. Thus, they may have difficulty functioning at work or school, doing errands, or caring for themselves in their own homes.
Below we have listed a few, but not all, of the signs of anxiety you should watch out for. One thing of note about anxiety is that the symptoms are not purely psychological or emotional, but also cause physical symptoms as well. If you’re dealing with one or more of these, consider looking at anxiety and depression treatment centers in Hawaii:
- Being easily spooked or startled
- Continuous feelings of worry
- High irritability
- Difficulty sleeping or having fitful sleep
- Feeling “on-edge”
- Having difficulty concentrating
- Muscle tension
How to Tell if You’re Dealing With Depression
Depression can not only negatively impact your life, it can make you feel as if your life has been stolen from you. People suffering from depression, also known as Major Depression Disorder, or Clinical Depression, experience ongoing feelings of sadness, loss, emptiness, or a general lack of interest in life which are unrelated to life circumstances. As a result, their outlook, behavior, and physical health suffers.
Patients who suffer from depression may not feel like it’s ‘worth it’ to perform regular, daily tasks. In the worst-case scenario, untreated depression can result in suicide. Though depression isn’t normal, anyone from any age group, race, or culture can suffer from the condition.
Here are some common signs or symptoms of depression:
- Being withdrawn from family, friend groups, or hobbies
- Difficulty concentrating
- Feelings of guilt or self-hatred
- Feelings of helplessness or hopelessness
- Constant sad moods
- Poor or inconsistent appetite
- Suicidal thoughts or tendencies
- A lack of interest in things that use to bring you joy
If you are experiencing any of the above listed symptoms for an extended period of time, we highly recommend seeking help. Perhaps you have already received a professional diagnosis, but aren’t receiving treatment or help yet. Or maybe you feel like something is wrong, but you don’t know why and you feel stuck, or even scared. Regardless of the label or the diagnosis, the above symptoms are serious and deserve attention. It’s important to note: it’s not your fault. If you are interested in receiving help, or even just talking with a kind and compassionate professional, please don’t hesitate to contact one of the anxiety and depression treatment centers in Hawaii. You are not alone in this and relief is absolutely possible.
