We all feel nervous or worried at times. This anxiety can be a helpful feeling when it motivates us or warns us of danger.
Here are some general tips.
Remind yourself that the illness is the problem—anger, frustration, or behaviors related to anxiety are nobody’s fault.
Be patient—learning and practicing new coping strategies takes time.
If your loved one is learning new skills, offer to help them practice.
Listen and offer support, but avoid pushing unwanted advice.
Set boundaries and seek support for yourself, if needed.
If other family members are affected by a loved one’s anxiety disorder, consider seeking family counseling.
