Women Share Hope for Anxiety Disorder Sufferers
Date:11/5/2007

SILVER SPRING, Md., Nov. 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- When Rita Clark's daughter, Gaye, announced her engagement, Clark wasn't overwhelmed with happiness or excitement -- she was terrified.

An agoraphobic who hid her panic disorder from her family for more than 20 years, Clark was convinced she would have a major panic attack and faint during the celebration, ruining her daughter's wedding.

People with agoraphobia avoid public places such as shopping malls and sports arenas because they fear or anticipate they will have a panic attack and would not be able to quickly escape. "My worst nightmare is about to take place," Clark thought as the wedding date crept closer.

More than 40 million adults in the U.S. suffer from an anxiety disorder such as panic disorder, and women are twice as likely to be affected. But anxiety disorders are treatable and can be conquered.

Clark overcame her nightmare to attend her daughter's wedding, and she is among a group of real women who share their inspiring stories in "Women Talk: Open the Dialogue -- Triumph Over Anxiety Disorders," an 18-month desk calendar from the Anxiety Disorders Association of America (ADAA). The calendar also features stress-relief tips and suggestions for overcoming the isolation and embarrassment women often associate with anxiety disorders.

Calendar proceeds benefit ADAA, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing awareness and improving the diagnosis, treatment, and cure of anxiety disorders, which include panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, social anxiety, generalized anxiety disorder, and specific phobias. Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S.
