ANXIETY DISORDERS/WORKING THROUGH THE RECOVERY: DAVID’S CASE

Posted by admin

David had been making little progress with his recovery and was becoming disillusioned with the recovery program. He was having difficulty in finding any time to himself to concentrate on his recovery. There were so many other things which needed to be done first. He had volunteered to take on extra duties at work because of staff shortages. That meant he wasn’t getting home until 7.00 p.m. Working late meant he spent less time with his children, so he did his best to make up for it on weekends. This interfered with the work he did for two service clubs in his area, but he tried to juggle his time. This in turn was complicated by the fact that his neighbours and friends were always dropping by with various requests for favours or help. On top of all this he had to stop and take time out when the anxiety and the attacks became too much. Having to find time to work on his recovery was the final straw. David was feeling quite resentful because he thought there should be some sort of recovery program which took all these demands on his time into account.

To complete our list, write down how many times we have taken time out to meditate or practise some other form of relaxation. Then estimate how much time we have put into working with our thinking. That usually gives us the complete answer.

Illness can also lower our threshold. Many people react to the additional symptoms with further anxiety and panic. We need to realise that if we are unwell, we would have these new symptoms even if we did not have the disorder. Don’t add to them. Let go of the anxiety-producing thoughts.

Remember, we mustn’t spend time and energy continually worrying about the setback and thinking we’ll never get over the disorder. We will with practice and patience.
