The culmination of the Fall season lies at the intersection of Friday Night Lights and the Thanksgiving Turkey. The Pilgrim born festivities we have embraced for centuries have become interwoven with America’s Games of Autumn. As distinct as these phenomenon might first appear, both are very much a part of the American spirit. What we celebrate in one way at the dinner table, we embrace in another on the field of play. Enjoy the abundance of it all, be thankful – and have some turkey.

For many people, a glass of wine with dinner or a few drinks at a party is no cause for concern. However, people with an anxiety disorder who use alcohol or other substances to alleviate their symptoms may actually make their anxiety worse. And it can be a vicious cycle: The symptoms of one disorder can make the symptoms of another worse.
During National Stress Øut Week, November 8-14, the Anxiety Disorders Association of America (ADAA) encourages you discover the difference between everyday stress and an anxiety disorder; take time to relax and unwind; and find help for anxiety, substance abuse, and other disorders.
