Why am I so anxious!!!! The epidemic of Fear and Anxiety
Anxiety Disorders affect 18.1percent of adults in the United States (approximately 40 million adults between the ages of 18 to 54). – National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH).
Some people are hospitalized and some people drudge through life in fear if waiting for the next panic attack. Some people can never seem to sleep or rest and are often just exhausted and have no energy to anything. Anxiety is fear driven and it is crippling. But it doesn’t have to be.
Sean deals with anxiety head on. What it is and what it isn’t and seeing anxiety as a gift instead of a curse. Back in 1995 Sean began to have brutal panic attacks that basically left him paralyzed with fear. After trying medications and speaking with doctors and therapists, it was his search for meaning in life and allowing God to enter into his brokenness when he discovered healing and peace. Sean finally looked at anxiety not as a foe but rather as a message and asked for help from above to understanding what his body was trying to say to him.
