A long time ago, when our ancestors were busy hunting and surviving all day, our bodies were programmed to be alert and alert most of the time. It was necessary to be ready for danger, to be alert facing distress and perils. It was, after all, what kept us alive.
These symptoms and reactions are still with us, even without anything to hunt or run away from. This is the point where excessive stress and worries start to be a problem and to mess with our health. Anxiety is here now causing damage to our health and preventing many people from leading their lives fully. Why is this happening?
Our body has an automatic response towards danger that is called a flight-or-fight response. As the name implies, it is about getting ready to fight for your life or to run and be safe. This is a normal response, the problem is never to leave that state of anxiety. It is also possible to have too frequent anxious responses in daily life, which can interfere with regular tasks. There is also the case of having responses that are out of proportion to the “threat” presented. Anxiety disorder affects more than 40 million people in the US only, from all ages and lifestyles. There is a higher chance of suffering from such disorder if your life is under constant pressure and stress, which is something that usually happens to celebrities and people under the public eye: Justin Bieber is no exception.
Bieber has been under the spotlight for more than ten years now, going from regular life to a superstar so quickly with non-stop responsibilities and pressure has hit home deeply. He has been through a lot and has been open about it on several occasions, although the audience hasn’t been always happy about it. When he decided to stop taking pictures with every single fan, public response was very rough on him. The truth is that he knew he had to step back from daily pressure and take a break, feel like a person again and regain some privacy. We all need our quiet time to function properly in this world and celebrities have that right too.
What did Justin do to get better?
He tried several things before. The young pop star was taking Adderall to control his focus and to be more productive, although this quickly proved to be the wrong path, his anxiety was getting worse. Then he started taking Xanax, a potent drug often prescribed for depression and anxiety which has a strong dependence feature. After a while and with the support of family and friends he quitted drugs and started a healthier path towards health, therapy. He is not in a rehab center but he often goes to therapy and deals with his mental issues with the constant support of his wife, Hailey Baldwin.
How to spot anxiety?
There are several psychological diagnoses that involve anxiety. However, the most common symptoms include:
- Unstoppable worries
- Concentration issues
- Sleep difficulties
It is normal to feel like this one day, under especially difficult circumstances. But, if these feelings don’t go away and start to interfere with the regular tasks and to-do’s of the day, then it is time to see a specialist. It is very common for people to fail in the identification of the disorder, they think it is normal and they are just busy. There are other expressions of the Anxiety disorder that may be easier to identify, such as Panic Attacks and Phobias. Although the most common expression of anxiety is General Anxiety Disorder.
Causes are not easy to point at because they might come all at once or one by one in a long period of time. Many people normalize situations in their life that can be the cause of anxiety but they do not report such a situation because they do not see the link. There are genetic, environmental and medical causes that need to be checked so as to have a good diagnose.
