Does your anxiety define you as a person? Are you GAD,ADD,ADHD,Agoraphobic....? Maybe you are just a normal person that had a rough upbringing, or who encountered some very difficult struggles. My point is that, although these clinical acronyms, names and labels may be useful for the sake of treatment, they do not define us as people. If we let them define us, then we have labeled ourself and are allowing others to lable us. Words like disorder, and phobia make us sound like we are from another planet. Again, maybe they are useful in a clinical enviroment, but they do affect the way we see ourselves if we use them as labels. Am I the only one who thinks this way? Any other thoughts?
