Anxiety Isn’t Cool – Talking about it is!

You get a common cold, no big deal. Your cold gets worse, you now have pneumonia, what do you do? Of course you go to the doctor. Why do we treat anxiety different? You experience mild anxiety due to an upcoming test, no big deal. Your anxiety gets worse, you are now isolated in your room and withdrawn from your friends, what do you do? Too often we do nothing and say nothing. We all have anxiety, but how much is too much?

Join us Monday, December 10th, 2018 from 6:30pm to 8:00pm at CrossWinds Church in Livermore for a screening of ‘Angst’ and then, Let’s Talk About it. This event is made possible by the Tri-Valley community in memory of Zachary Nimmo. Zachary had a zest for life, was liked by everyone and always put others ahead of his own needs, but Zachary suffered from severe anxiety. What was not know was the severity of Zachary’s anxiety. Without an understanding of anxiety, Zachary was referred to as shy, or experiencing teen hormones; It was anxiety. He began to withdraw from his friends; it was anxiety He stopped participating in team sports; It was anxiety. He spent most of his time alone; It was anxiety. He was seeking medical and psychological help, but it was too late.

On December 10th, let’s make a commitment. In Zachary’s honor, let’s start the conversation about anxiety and keep it going. If you feel you are experiencing anxiety, say something; if you see a friend experiencing anxiety, say something, don’t let a minor anxiety issue become something dangerous, say something.
