Show 245 Anxiety Symptoms

In the episode, I mentioned that your symptoms are not the enemy. They ain’t your friend either. Symptoms are a way for your brain and body to communicate with you. Your symptoms do not use words. They do not do that noun conjunction verb. 

They are good at telling you there is a problem. They are lousy at telling you why there is a problem. They try. They really do. But you have to take the time to learn their language. 

Like if you really don't like riding in elevators your body will tense up. Could be because work will be hectic. Could be that you don't like small boxes filled with people. 

So this is just a basic reminder of the general categories of symptoms and some of the things that could occur on or in your body.
