In any event, Saarni said, “Most striking to me has been the large impact of anxiety disorders and dysthymia, all of which have traditionally been considered neurotic, milder conditions. Anxiety disorders especially have not been high treatment priorities in comparison to depression, even though good evidence-based pharmacological and psychological treatments exist [for the anxiety disorders]. For example, the World Health Organization/World Bank burden-of-disease studies did make the impact of depression well known, but failed to include most anxiety disorders.”

Can you move this to "Research Studies, Trials and News" I may have posted this in the wrong section lol

That's where I was confused. It was posted under frustration so I figured it upset you for some reason.

Not looking for advice currently, at least regarding social anxiety. But thanks.

I felt validated by this information. I have severe treatment resistant Social Anxiety Disorder and feel at the end of my rope. I feel that doctors (psychiatrists) don't take anxiety as seriously as depression, bipolar disorder, or psychotic disorders. My reality is a nightmare right now and I have severe severe anxiety and I have tried most medications. I personally know many people who live well with Bipolar and other conditions as long as they take there medications consistently. For me nothing is working and its frustrating. Sorry went on a tangent lol. The Bottom line is this research is invaluable to the sufferer and maybe it will help spread awareness and change in the views and opinions of medical professionals and the general public.

Spot on.

This would open path to explore new ways of treatment.

Controversial in what way?

It all comes down to the individual. But the point of this medical journal is to study the effects of disorder on a day to day basis. And surprising result such that anxiety users have a lower quality of life may help psychiatrist to take anxiety disorder more seriously compared to psychotic ones. The point of this is not saying x is worse than y or vice versa. This may help create pathway to better treatment options

I agree with you but I feel like this research was very interesting will be useful for developing new treatment options.

Well, hopefully this will be reflected in policy changes. Less stigma towards SA, more accommodations at work.

I can live with the social anxiety. I've lived with it (severe social anxiety) for 27+ years now. Even had selective mutism as a teen. It hardly even bothers me 98% of the time. I love being alone. I love traveling alone and doing everything alone. I think it depends on how introverted you are. I'm extremely introverted. I'm the type who can be perfectly happy not interacting with any humans for a month. I rarely feel lonely. And that's good because the idea of interacting with a human is intimidating.

It's the generalized anxiety disorder and ruminating thoughts that's a bittch sometimes. And I get depressed occasionally.

That is a very interesting finding. Interesting results. I've suffered terribly with my SA, so I kind of feel validated by this study.

Thanks for posting it.🙏
