Resources for Those Facing Anxiety

If you have anxiety, you know that your anxiety could be completely different from the next person's, you know that it could fluctuate from day to day. Sometimes you have harder months than others, and sometimes you just don’t think you can go on living the way you are. Anxiety sounds simple but it’s quite complex. There is generalized anxiety, panic disorders, PTSD, OCD, phobias, anxiety tied to specific triggers, issues, events, and of course the long list of medical conditions that can cause anxiety such as thyroid disorders.
