Anxiety Helpline: Anxiety Support

Anxiety Hotline - Anxiety Disorders

Dealing with your anxiety or an anxiety-related disorder can be incredibly painful and sometimes creates feelings of loneliness, but you are not alone. Anxiety disorders are common, affecting more than 45 million adults.

Experiencing mild to moderate levels of anxiety is a normal response to stress; however, persistent feelings of anxiety without any outside stressors can be worrisome and may indicate that you suffer from an anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders can affect even the most minor aspects of your life. It is essential to find help and learn how to stay strong and optimistic during those difficult times.

Regardless of the cause or origin of your anxiety, our anxiety support group online is here for you to find the support you want and deserve. Caregivers-helping-caregivers is our version of an anxiety helpline service. ExtendaTouch is free for everyone. ExtendaTouch exists for you to find support anonymously, talk about your personal experiences, listen to others, or share some information and experiences.

In 2012, while in the US Navy and on deployment in the Arabian Gulf, I experienced a prinzmetal angina episode where I was unconscious for more than 2 hours. After I was medically evacuated back the US, it was discovered that I had suffered a hypoxia frontal lobe brain injury (TBI non-impact), and as a result was subsequently diagnosed with: Severe Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, Major Depressive Disorder, Traumatic (non-impact) Brain Injury (TBI), and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

I care for a male who has Generalized Anxiety Disorder, a chronic major mental illness which prevents him from engaging in the world around him. His illness presents as social phobia, cycling through numerous anxiety attacks on an almost daily basis, and inability to function in the world without assistance. I am his only caregiver. I have years of experience dealing with government programs for disabled, mental health system, special needs trusts, etc.
