Cases Of Anxiety And Phobia
Before detailing the cases of anxiety and phobia lets scrutinize on some of the essential points regarding anxiety and phobia. We see cases of phobia and anxiety mostly in adolescents and those who are in their mid-thirties.
It is for sure that about twenty five percent of the entire population will suffer from relentless phobia or anxiety or may be both at some points in their lives.
Cases of anxiety and phobia are more commonly found in women than men. Anxiety disorder seldom comes alone. They are in most cases accompanied by depression and stress.
Some people take to alcohol and drugs as an easy way out from these conditions. They believe that a partial unconsciousness is best to make them forget their misery.
However, early diagnosis and treatment may facilitate quick recovery, as anxiety is the most curable of all mental disorders.
Cases of Social Phobia
Social phobia is another way of referring to phobia of being noticed and criticized. Such phobic individuals are like snails who love to live in their shells just at times popping out their heads for a breath of fresh air.
They are shy to talk, meet people, answer in class, converse over telephone and reluctant to speak up and make others feel their presence. They exist in a bubble of fear of being rebuked.
One of the most interesting cases of anxiety and phobia, I treated was of Charles. He was a shy married gentleman in his early thirties. His wife Maria could understand it from the beginning because he avoided eye contacts.
After marriage Charles exchanged roles with Maria and she was the one to make appointments, attend parent-teacher conferences, social arrangements, order food, but unfortunately, she was not the one who could work for Charles.
In his professional sphere, Charles faced a lot of problem. He stammered, he shivered and every time he made a decision or uttered a word he sat down to think what others might think of him. Oh gosh! One of the most terrible cases of anxiety and phobia. Charles was definitely in need of treatment.
Cases of Claustrophobia – Fear Of Enclosed Spaces
In trying, to cite several cases of anxiety and phobia we remember Ronnie who was simply panicky about visiting enclosed shopping malls and getting into lifts. Once he entered a shopping mall he started thinking that what might happen if suddenly the bazaar is set on fire.
He would not be bale to escape and die out of suffocation and panic. The same thing would also happen to him if he entered a lift. He would start to daydream that suddenly the lift might stop working and he would die due to lack of oxygen and stupid fear.
His extent of phobic disorder made him avoid lifts and use stairs and he preferred shopping in open markets.
Cases of Agoraphobia
Harry is also a victim of one of the most common cases of anxiety and phobia. He is afraid of being alone. He fears seclusion and feels homesick all the time. Once he had to go out of town due to professional reasons and he suffered a lot.
Some may think that Harry is more attached to his family. This however is not the truth. Rather than being attached, Harry is afraid to stay alone because a feeling of attachment is normal human phenomenon, which cannot make you suffer from panic disorders.
Whoever it might be, Charles, Ronnie or Harry – all of the cases of anxiety and phobia disorders require fast and effective
Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is not the only but the most successful way of treating cases of anxiety and phobia.
At the initial stage of onset Charles, Ronnie or Harry took up NLP to revolutionize their attitude, behavior and thinking pattern.
