Moderate Anxiety

  • Moderate anxiety often develops in situations wherein an individual must face circumstances that are often beyond their control.
  • Serious illness, losing ones job, or loss of a loved one, all represent the type of circumstances that can produce moderate anxiety.
  • Moderate anxiety often affects one's mood, causing a lowering of one's self-esteem, a loss of self-confidence, sadness, suspiciousness, confusion, and isolation.
  • Anxiety of this type can often become prolonged because one lacks the control necessary to remedy the situation.
  • Still, developing a plan for improving the situation may be helpful to reduce the sense of helplessness that often accompanies this type of anxiety.
  • Otherwise, anxiety of this kind may often only dissipate with time and changing circumstances.

What to do

  • Because moderate anxiety often produces confusion and self-doubt, it becomes quite difficult to develop a plan that may help the individual regain their sense of control over the situation.
  • Consulting with a counselor or a therapist is generally a good idea as a step toward getting things back on track.
  • A family physician may be a good starting point in obtaining such a referral, and may even recommend a mild medication ( anxiolytic ) to lessen the anxiety being experienced.
