What kind of anxiety do you have?

Often, the kind of anxiety we have is connected to specific situations. May be you have anxiety when you are in social situations, or may be you more of a chronic worry about all kinds of small things in your daily life, may be you have anxiety from repetitive thoughts that you haven´t locked the door or turned off the stove, may be you have anxiety when you are reminded of something traumatic that has happened to you etc.
There is kind of a psychiatric dictionnary called DSM IV where the different forms of anxiety are listed and those are the following:
– Panic syndrome and agoraphobia
– Anxiety around different diseases
– Social phobia
– Generalized anxiety disorder
– Specific phobia
– Posttraumatic stress syndrome

I think that many states of anxiety are connected to your self-esteem. So by working with both the specific anxiety provoking situations and your self-esteem, you can get a better grip of you anxiety and diminsh it. As I have said before, we can´t erase the anxiety since fear is a basic feeling that humans have got for a reason. So you can´t erase it but you can diminish it so that it stops controlling your life making you feel helpless.
