The New York Times is running a series of articles on
anxiety symptoms, signs of anxiety and anxiety attacks.
One in five Americans admit they suffer from anxiety and
the New York Times is beginning to understand that
“anxiety is not a disorder, it is part of the human
Last Sunday in the Times, Alissa Nutting, author of the
short story collection, “Unclean Jobs for Women and Girls”
and creative writer teacher at John Carroll University
wrote an article called, “An Appointment with Dread.”
She bravely shares her inner, anxious world. Picture this.
On the outside, Alissa looks fine. She is sitting in the MD
office waiting to be seen. The average person would not
know Alissa is feeling anxious because she looks just like
everyone else, and besides, she is pretty.
However, on the inside, Alissa is freaking out.
Alissa describes how she feels as she walks down the hall to
the medical examining office. “Although this feels like an
emergency, when we pass a fire extinguisher, I do not break
the glass. I would like to, though. I would like to activate
an alarm and run.”
How often do you feel like something is an emergency and
you know it is not a real emergency? This feeling of urgency
and anxiety IS part of the human condition.
For example, are you the kind of person who has to jump up
and do something as soon as you think about it? Your sense
of emergency forces you to complete a task as soon as you
think about the need to complete a task.
You have trouble relaxing, resting, and being in the moment.
You do not trust that you will complete all tasks as needed,
This urgency that something is an emergency when it is not,
is very important to tease out, address and unlearn.
As a child, you learned to be anxious about all sorts of
things. As you grew up, many of your anxious behaviors
became very unhelpful and ineffective.
As an adult, you have trouble relaxing, resting and being in
the moment. Anxiety is the reason you do not have more
vibrant moments of being alive, happy and full of yourself.
Begin to recognize your sense of urgency, which is your
anxiety. Then address the real issue.
Do not follow in Alissa’s footsteps of getting more medication
from physicians to mask the psychological problems that you
have. Instead, address your real mental health, emotional
health and sexual health problems.
You need to unlearn all the behaviors that push you to do
something right now, in a certain and just so. Your pushy
behaviors are anxious behaviors. They are keeping you from
relaxing, being healthy, making love and enjoying life.
