ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION
is a state of mind like phobias that is induced by the way we think, and the things that happens to us in our every day life, at work/home in social settings etc. Anxiety is a necessity for everyone, as it allows individuals to predict fearful
situations that may arise at any given time, but the level of the anxiety will depend upon the stimulus presented and it is the level that is produced is the problem.
Anxiety like phobias can be created just from thought. If you were to think of some anxiety producing thought long enough, you can create anxiety just from the imagination without any real situation being present, (what you have grown to expect and believe will happen in certain situations)You may be fully aware that there is no danger that nothing is going to happen to you in reality, but some thing at another level of conscious tells you that some thing may happen to you, and that thought alone will trigger anxiety and fear and can wreck a normal individuals life and create all sorts of psychological and physical problems from over loads of stress.
A prime example of this is I.B.S. Irritable Bowel Syndrome which may include, severe abdominal pain diarrhoea, and the fear of going out, because of the fore mentioned, stomach ulcers can be caused through stress, excess stress can be a major contribution to coronary heart disease, especially if there are other contributing factors such as genetic inheritance, this type of person could have a much higher risk factor.
