stand up to anxiety
It's hard to know where to turn, when anxiety clouds your thinking.
Anxiety is Dangerous
Anxiety underlies 99% of alcoholics' drinking disorders, and it is associated with depressive disorder over 75% of the time. It can adversely affect the nervous system in micromolecular ways. This can increase inflammation, amplify pain and accelerate health problems. These problems can include high blood pressure and high blood sugar, so anxiety can ultimately lead to poor circulation and organ damage.
