I know anxiety. I met it in my early 20s. When I didn’t know a thing about managing anxiety.
The trouble with anxiety is that it can come up out of nowhere. No specific reason, just one day, there it is.
The trouble with anxiety is that it can turn into full-blown panic attacks. Sometimes so bad you think you’re dying. Or having a heart attack. Or can’t breathe.
The trouble with anxiety is that it can be debilitating. It can stop us from living fully.
The trouble with anxiety is that it’s invisible. If others can’t see it, it must not exist, right?
I met anxiety and panic attacks when they appeared out of nowhere when I was about 23 years old. Fortunately, I was a student and my college psych department offered sliding scale therapy by PhD students. And it was from one of those students that I learned the value of hypnosis. Because he hypnotized me out of my anxiety.
After a few hypnotherapy sessions, my anxiety moved on. Oh, it would come to visit every so often. But thanks to hypnotherapy, I knew how to handle it. And over the years, it finally disappeared for good.
Back then I had no apparent affinity for hypnosis—that is, I didn’t know I’d become a hypnotherapist. But that’s what I am. And I know firsthand how helpful it can be for those debilitating anxious feelings.
