When Is The Best Time To Address Anxiety Disorder?
It's best to address anxiety disorder as soon as possible. The longer anxiety disorder is allowed to remain unaddressed, the more entrenched and complicated it can become.
That said, anxiety disorder at any stage can be successfully overcome. For example, we have people coming to us in their 70s and 80s who have suffered from it most of their lives, yet they can still overcome it. But more entrenched anxiety disorder generally takes longer to resolve than anxiety disorder that is caught early.
Those who address their anxiety the soonest can look forward to a long life of anxiety disorder-free living. I (Jim Folk) overcame my anxiety disorder in 1986 and haven't experienced it since.
So again, addressing anxiety disorder as soon as possible is the best approach. And since anxiety disorder doesn't disappear on its own, the longer we leave it unaddressed, the more of an impact it can have on our lives.
