If your anxiety has come back after leaving you in peace for a while don’t feel bad. It’s normal. It’s also annoying and somewhat terrifying.
Just when you thought all this anxiety business was old news you can become accidentally immersed in it again, but this time you might have the sinking feeling that things are about to get a lot worse.
Sometimes a relapse is set off by a stressful situation or a big change in your life but, and I’ll be honest with you, sometimes it just happens for no reason.
It’s happened to me several times over the years. And although my anxiety never returned to the living hell levels of 1999, it does enough to get my attention every now and then.
I wrote about this issue in 2009 but never followed up with a podcast. It’s helpful to revisit this topic from time to time because for some reason after going anxiety free for a while dealing with it again can feel brand new in a horrifying way.
So in this week’s episode of the Anxiety Guru Show I explore anxiety relapse and how you can manage it and avoid another long stint of bad nerves.
