See Your Doctor
If you can never relax and are so consumed by worries that it makes having a normal life hard or impossible, you may need to see your doctor right away. It’s no shame to have to go to the doctor and ask for help. There is a stigma about seeking anxiety and stress relief. You may think you’re crazy or lazy; but you’re not. Everyone has anxiety and stress to different degrees.
What if you broke your leg, you would go see the doctor for help, wouldn’t you? Anxiety and stress relief should be sought after in the same way. If anybody teases you about being a “mental case”, ignore them. They are just voicing their own fears about their own anxiety and stress. Your doctor will understand as he or she sees patients with very similar problems almost every day.
Perhaps the doctor will prescribe medicines for your anxiety and stress relief. That doesn’t mean you’re ‘lacking’ in some way for needing to take pills for a mental or emotional problem. Extreme anxiety and never ending stress can often be the signs of easily treatable physical problems.
