Prey of Fear

We were watching Ice Age: The Meltdown for the 500th time this week and something Sid said to Diego really struck a cord with me.  I had an 'aha' moment.

Sid: I'm just trying to help you get over your fear of the water. 
Diego: Fear is for prey. 
Sid: Then that means the water has made you its prey. 

Did you know that 10% of Australians will be affected by an anxiety disorder at some point during their life.  An anxiety disorder is a little more than just being scared of something. Anxiety can be crippling for a sufferer.
According to Anxiety Australia physical symptoms of an Anxiety Disorder can include:
Tachycardia, rapid heartbeat
Muscle tension
Numbness or tingling in arms, hands  or legs
Butterflies in the stomach

Are you becoming prey to your fear? 
Beyond Blue has some great resources and information on helplines to help you conquer the fear.

So you can be just like Diego
