Your life isn't some trial to grin and bear.  Smiles on the outside and storms on the inside.  Being a high achiever in your job and life does not have to cost you your peace of mind.   

 

High-Functioning Anxiety?

 

Doctors and specialists use the term 'anxiety' as a catch-all diagnosis for a certain types of problems that are hard to otherwise categorize.  The condition has diagnostic criteria like 'excessive worry' and 'significant distress' and 'muscle tension'.  It's a hazy word, yet with so much power.  And, it's thrown around casually...even absorbed casually. 

 

Once you know a few things about anxiety, you will agree that, while the symptoms and signs are real, using them as criteria for a diagnostic label is just a way to bide time.  The label accomplishes nothing but satisfy a longing to categorize an unpleasant experience.

 

Relief begins from knowing what the heck anxiety is.

 

Anxiety is fascinating feedback about how your nervous system is adapting to your environment - your physical, chemical and mental environment.  If you want to understand and eliminate the anxiety experience from your life, first you must know what causes it.  

 

I have a knack for making the process sensible and simple, and I have been doing it for more than 20 years with people just like you.  The only difference is, they have relief, and you don't, yet.

 

The focus here at DONE WITH ANXIETY is High-Functioning Anxiety.  That's not even a diagnosis (available in the pantheon of mental health disorders), yet.   

However, high functioning anxiety is a term that is gaining popularity to describe a long list of feelings and behaviors experienced by people who are high-achievers.  (I bet there are some Big Pharma marketers planning a new campaign for some bespoke medicine that will target the high-achievers of the world...and will have the pricetag to prove it.)

 

If you were told you have high-functioning anxiety, or you were 'diagnosed' with the condition, you might believe you fit into this category of 'mental disorders'. You may believe there's something wrong with you...that your experience is inevitable....even unstoppable.

 

Nonsense.  Do not believe it.

 

Now, don't get me wrong. There's no denying the anatomy and physiology of stress. That stuff is real.

 

But the origin of the anxiety? That's another story. You're not a hapless victim to life's natural stresses.    

 

Anxiety.  It describes the end-result of being under pressure...and stressed on the outside and inside.  Maybe you don't even know what it means?  So, instead of finding out, you accept the label.

 

I am here to tell you to STOP.  Here is the truth:  We will turn that label sideways. And get rid of it.

 

You just need a little assistance.  To be turned in the right direction.  That's my job.

 

Your job is to do something different.  Why not do that right now?

No More Bumper Sticker Wisdom


The Insanity Stops Today

Somewhere, somewhen in your life, someone spoke bumper sticker wisdom, and you believed it:

  • "Shit happens."   
  • Then, "Freedom fades. Grown-up problems multiply. Circumstances inflict their many woes upon you. And there is nothing you can do about it." 
  • Or, how about "When you were young and ignorant you were happy.  Now you're an adult and you know that's impossible."
  • Or, "Take this pill.  You'll be happy."
  • Or, "Life happens.  Then you die."

But here's the thing: that bumper sticker wisdom is not wisdom.  It is a crock. 

 

You've been told that life happens to you. The truth is that you happen to life.

 

Right!  You're feeling most of this agitation because you had your pronouns mixed up. That's all.

 

So, I'm here to set the record straight.

 

You have more power than you know to stop the problem of anxiety.  And, it's my job to make it easier for you to use your power in the way that will make you feel great.

 

Life isn't swallowing you up in a web of anxious fate. lt's not a torrential current sweeping you downriver. Life is not something that happens to you.

 

You happen to life.

 

Okay -- now that we have established that, let's get to how to do it.

 

Search the site.  Read the blog.  Or, jump right in to find out about how being DONE WITH ANXIETY is possible - and more simple than you think - by starting with the free quiz and Ebook, above.  It's free!

Dr. Case: The Real Deal

Hey! 

I'm Dr. Case...that would be Amelia Webber Case, born AD 1961. I started this blog because of two things that happened after I encountered the term "high-functioning anxiety." First, I laughed out loud. Then, I dropped what I was doing and sat still.  And got mad.

 

High-functioning anxiety is not in the DSM-5, because it is not an official psychiatric diagnosis. But you can bet your bottom-dollar that there is a drug that can be used on-, off- or between-labels to 'treat' it. It will not only get its own insurance billing code, it will become a sub-specialty in professional circles. (I can hear the BS now -  "You see, I limit my practice to only those patients with HIGH-FUNCTIONING ANXIETY.") And, most certain of all, it will earn Big Pharma a gazillion dollars, or more.

 

I don't know about you, but it was that moment I decided I was DONE

 

Done sitting around thinking someone else would solve it.

 

Done keeping my own story to myself.

 

Done with the nonsense of another label.

 

Done standing by when regular people with regular nervous systems get labeled as pathologic for trying to process this big and complex world. 

Apart from being a high-achiever who struggled quite awfully with 'high functioning anxiety', I am a journal-writer, I am a word-lover, vocab-hunter, serial-healer, human-behavior futurist, doctor, entrepreneur, lover, wife, and mom. I read like mad and sometimes talk even more...and now I am going to talk about this subject I know so well and the method I created to solve it because SOMEONE HAS TO STOP THE MADNESS.

 

No, DONE WITH ANXIETY  is not a new method.  I've been using it with to help people for almost 20 years, but I have been keeping it quiet because, well,  I guess I just did not think about a way to help more people than those I was helping one-on-one and I thought I was too busy with my day job.

 

Well, anyway,  Here I am, and what I have to say is this:  No more of that waiting around for someone else to do it.  Nuh-uh.  I am not going to sit still a moment longer when I can help you and someone you know solve a problem that is TOTALLY SOLVEABLE.

 

It's time to open up and share what I know will help so many millions of people who struggle with high functioning anxiety.

 

I AM GOING TO CHANGE THE WORLD!  

Well, now I am laughing out loud again. (Delusions are in a whole different section of the DSM-5.)

 

But, really, if one person - even one! maybe you? - avoids yet-another-label, I will have done my job.

 

I may not change the world, but I AM going to change your world.

 

Let's get to it.
