Our expert says:
Finding ways to deal better with stress may indeed be useful, and usually I think this is better achieved by CBT ( COgnitive-Behaviour Therapy ) a form of counselling which enables you to deal better with whatever stresses you, and to cope better with stress when it arises. One may develop an anxiety disorder with stress-like symptoms without necessarily anything obviously stressful in your life. If you search online for economically priced CBT-oriented books about how to manage your stress, you may find that you can do part of this project yourself, though nothing would be as effective as managing to see a CBT therapist yourself in person. Maybe check whether the dept of psychology at your local medical school / university can provide such a service, as their therapists in training will need clients to work with, and this may be at no cost to you.
