ANXIETY CHAT ROOM - Ohio PEER SUPPORT
In this trying world, it's fully understandable to feel overwhelmed with feelings of anxiety and panic. Mental illness is in majority, a natural response to unnatural situations. Your feelings are valid and we are here to assist you on your path to recovery. We believe that support can find many forms, and can help people in just a few. Our Anxiety chat rooms let you vent your frustrations in a safe place, among others who can relate with how you are feeling.
Health & Help Chat is glad to be offering you this friendly, supportive portion of the web site where you can befriend others living with the sometimes crippling world of anxiety. From social anxiety to generalized anxiety disorder and all in between, Health & Help Chat is here to present, for your use, an Anxiety Chat Room, anxiety forums, and an anxiety social network.
If you suffer from one of the many anxiety disorders, such as social anxiety, generalized anxiety disorder, health anxiety or hypochondria, agoraphobia, specific phobias, or panic disorder, you know what the racing heartbeat, the restlessness, the irritability, the tremors, twitching, insomnia, and the incapacitating fear feels like. You know the nausea and the stomach pain that accompanies the feeling that at any moment you are going to pass out. You know what it feels like to be out in the world, fearing that a panic attack leading to public humiliation may strike at any moment. Perhaps you know what it feels like to fear leaving your home due to this embarrassment. We at Health & Help Chat encourage you to enter here and meet, greet, share and support with others who may be feeling the same things as you are.
According to, HealthyPlace, "Anxiety Disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S. with 19.1 million(13.3%) of the adult U.S. population (ages 18-54) affected."1 Since this is just a United States statistic, imagine how many others worldwide fight an anxiety disorder each day. This fact should be proof enough to show you that you are not alone in your battle with anxiety, nor should you feel that way. The philosophy of Health & Help Chat is that along with the appropriate medical attention, there is power in the caring support of your peers. The hope of this anxiety portion of Health & Help Chat is that you will connect with others around the globe of all ages, genders and ethnicities, and will be able to finally see that you are part of a large world-wide community fighting similar daily struggles.
This Anxiety Chat Room, these anxiety forums, and the anxiety social network offer you the opportunity to share your anxiety symptoms in Ohio with others, talk about possible anxiety disorder treatments, including therapy and possible medication, and to speak to your peers out there who also feel the familiar but uncontrollable panic. When the anxiety attack begins, and you start to feel that light headedness, the cold sweat forming on your forehead, and the churning in the pit of your stomach, the aim of Health & Help Chat is that your peers may be able to calm you. Or perhaps you will be able to soothe someone else; sometimes helping others can actually help us help ourselves. This anxiety disorder peer support community hopes that you come here to both give and gain support, and that you find the reassurance that you are not alone with others who can truly understand you.
Sometimes it helps if you say to yourself internally, "It's going to be alright", and putting those thoughts out of your head for a few seconds afterwards. You might just forget [or distract yourself] enough to be on a different track; hopefully a better one. People find weighted blankets and SAD light therapy lamps to be helpful in easing anxiety symptoms. This is partly due to seasonal affective disorder and the current pandemic. Though people have reported them to be helpful in other situations as well.
