ANGS,BURNOUT,DEPRESSIE
EK sit met dieafgelope 3 jaar met angs,ek kry nie angs aanvalle nie,maar kry vir die een of ander rede angs gloede.Dit maak my baie bekommerd aangesien ek n' besigheid het wat ek moet bestuur.Ek was al by n' sielkundige,maar hy kon nie vasstel wat die angs gloede veroorsaak nie.Hte het ook totale slaapversteuring,ek kan nagte om sit sonder om te slaap.Ek weet my slaap patroon sal nie terug kom voor ek van die angs ontslae geraak het nie.Maar hoe beveg ek dit,as ek nie weet wat trigger dit nie.kan die angs kom van n' totale burnout,en as dit dit is hoelank sal dit neem om te recover.Ek is al raad op en is bang dat dit kan oorgaan na erge depressie,wat net weer my angs sal vererger.Ek gebruik nie medikasie nie,want ek wil nie die simtome verlig nie ,maar eerder beheer.Ek is n' persoon wat redelik sensitief is,em my emosies ry gou wip plank.Het u dalk asb vir my raad hoe ek van die probleem ontslae kan raak. Groete JB

You know, JB, sometimes there are obvious reasons, easily noticed, for anxiety symptoms ; often no reasons are apparent. The good news is that there is absolutely not the slightest need to discover the reasons for the symptoms having arrived, for them to be treated successfully. medications can reduce the symptoms, and a particular type of psychological treatment, called CBT (Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy) can help you to learn to control and avoid the symptoms in future. And it needn't take long to recover, either, if your shrink knows what he or she is doing. The CBT approach emphasized gaining control over the anxiety ; and careful and limited use of medications can help you to gain that control, rather than having the medication control you.
