Dealing with Fear and Anxiety
Hello fellow ozbargainers,
I would really appreciate all of your suggestions and advices for my problem.
This is an extremely personal request and help. People who are not empathetic and people who don't care please do not post offensive or silly comments.
I am a 31 year old male married full time employed professional
Very calm and a quiet individual.
I have a problem where I can't win even even a silliest argument and I will become anxious (even on a phone call)
I can't stand up for myself and if I do it, it will look like I am impolite and rude (I don't have the knack to tell that in a subtle way) and my hearts race up and I have shivering hands and fingers. I won't sweat, Thank God for that!
When I read in the internet about it, it looks like I am not the only person and people suggest a variety of things such as diverting my mind, moving hands and legs vigorously, deep breathing etc. but those things will help me get over it at that time but I can't do anything if that issue is on a phone call
Please don't suggest like "Grow some balls" or "pull up your socks". If you suggest that way please elaborate with an example. I would be grateful :(
This is a genuine request to all kind people out there and thanks in advance.
Also I have not been to a Doctor about anxiety issues as this is my only problem and nothing else. It's all about the adrenaline and it's effects I think but please post your thoughts
