Anxiety

Anxiety, worry, and stress are all a part of most people’s lives today, but simply experiencing anxiety or stress in and of itself does not mean you have an anxiety disorder. In fact, anxiety is a necessary warning signal of a dangerous or difficult situation. Without anxiety, we would have no way of anticipating difficulties ahead and preparing for them. Anxiety becomes a disorder when the symptoms become chronic and interfere with our daily lives and our ability to function. When these symptoms are severe and upsetting enough to make individual feel extremely uncomfortable, out of control and helpless.
