Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) or a Panic Attack?

 
A person who suffers from generalized anxiety tends to worry about big and little issues and feels uncomfortable physical symptoms throughout most of the day. Repetitious, unproductive thoughts are one of the central problems of generalized anxiety.
For generalized anxiety, the most common worries are the small day-to-day concerns, like arriving on time or completing enough projects during the day. Other prominent concerns are health and illness, work or school performance, money and family. 
 
Whereas a panic attack is a sudden rush of uncomfortable physical symptoms coupled with thoughts of impending doom-making a scene, heart attack, not being able to breathe. It may seem to appear "out of the blue," but typically comes during an extended period of stress. This stress is not caused by a few days of tension, but stress/tension that extends over several months.
Although the first panic attack may take place in a distinct situation, further episodes are unpredictable as to time or place.
 
During a panic attack, one or more uncomfortable physical symptoms such as increased heart rate, chest pain, dizziness or light-headedness, shortness of breath, inability to concentrate and/or confusion will be present in a severe form.
 
3 key factors that distinguish Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) from a Panic Disorder (PD)
 
1.The symptoms themselves:
If an individual is chronically anxious (GAD) and also experiences episodes of panic, then panic disorder will be the more likely diagnosis.
 
2. The kind of fearful thoughts associated with the problem
GAD will worry about the kinds of interactions they will have with others: "Will I fail in this work setting?" "Are they going to accept me?" "I'm afraid he/she's going to leave me." "What if they discover how little I know?" "I'll never perform up to their expectations."
The anxious person focuses more on his/her inability to cope with the expectations and responses of those around him/her.

Panic disorder: the imagined response of others is secondary to the fear of personal catastrophe or loss of control: "What if I faint (become hysterical, have a heart attack, cause a scene . . .), and people see me?" The panic-prone person focuses more on his/her inability to be in 100 percent control of all his/her physical and mental capacities.
 
3.The person's response to his/her fear: 
 The GAD person thinks about withdrawing from situations that increase his/her anxiety and may procrastinate on performance tasks.

The PD person will use avoidance as a way to diminish discomfort. In a matter of days can identify the situations that are associated with the symptoms and determine how to steer clear and avoid those situations.
 
There are many treatment options available and it is important to know that you do not have to do this on your own.

Dr. Tiffany Eberhard ND, a foodie at heart, shares this salad that is loved by young and the young at heart!

Taco Salad
This can be prepared in portions in a jar or lunch container. There is lots of flexibility. Be creative and enjoy!

Ingredients:
  • Salsa
  • Lettuce
  • Tomatoes - grape tomatoes work well
  • Black beans
  • Corn – locally grown or frozen - thaw a portion
  • Taco meat - your choice
  • Taco seasoning packet or homemade - it is simple to make and you are likely to have most of the ingredients already!
  • Diced avocado
  • Cheese - optional
  • Sour cream or Greek yogurt - optional
  • Tortilla chips - optional
  • Mason jar or lunch container
Instructions:
  1. Cook taco meat
  2. Cut lettuce and tomatoes
  3. Drain beans
  4. Layer ingredients - salsa, black beans, corn, taco meat, cheese, sour cream, lettuce, tomatoes, avocado, and tortilla chips.
  5. Add lid to jar
  6. Store in refrigerator until serving-make a few lunches at once!
Leftover chili works well instead of adding taco meat, corn, and black beans separately. You can slow cook the chili for a quick meal and then use the leftovers to make this salad.

Recently, I was grateful to compete in my 3rd consecutive Slo Pitch Canadian Championship in St. Bruno, Quebec. This year was very different from the previous 2 years. In preparation, I stepped up my strength training, my nutrition, and my recovery training. It paid off more than I could have imagined. We played 12 games in 5 days and my body was extremely good to me - I put in the work and it responded. As an outfielder in a hitter’s game, you have to run a lot.  I wasn't as sore or fatigued as in previous years. Of course, I had bumps and scrapes as a result of diving and slides, but I woke up the next day refreshed and ready to go. It showed me that recovery training and nutrition make the difference- I have always lived in the gym and worked on strength training but I really focused on recovery - mobility, stretching, fueling my body with the proper foods and supplements.
Although my team didn't finish where we had hoped (6th), it was a great week!
