  • Lightheadedness

  • Getting without difficulty fatigued
  • Believing the worst will happen
  • Persistent worry
  • All-or-not anything thinking
  • Overgeneralizing (making typical assumptions primarily based totally on a unmarried event)
  • Avoidance of fear condition or events
  • Seeking reassurance
  • Second-guessing
  • Irritability and frustration in feared conditions
  • Compulsive actions (like washing arms over and over)
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which teaches patients how to cope with stressful events and reduce anxiety.
  • Antidepressant medication management, which is effective on its own but even more so when combined with CBT.
  • Enquiring about what you can do to assist your loved one.
  • Asking if you can join a therapy session to gain knowledge of how to support them more effectively.
  • Making time for your own interests and life to keep your energy up.
  • Encouraging your loved one to seek treatment from a different therapist if the first doesn’t work out.
