ANXIETY
 

Anxiety is at the root of many common types of mental health problems.  Everyone experiences anxiety in their daily life. Perhaps this is why many people who are afflicted with an anxiety disorder, do not seek treatment. Millions of people have anxiety disorders. Anxiety affects young and old.

Everyone feels anxious now and then.  It is normal to feel anxiety in the face of danger or a challenging situation. Anxiety can be helpful. It can help you rise to the occasion and be more alert.

 

But anxiety disorders are different.  A person with an anxiety disorder has fears and worry that may be severe or last a very long time. May often be out of proportion to the actual situation or can force him or her to take extreme action to avoid the source of the anxiety such being afraid to leave their home.

There are several different anxiety disorders:

  • Panic disorders
  • Phobias
  • Generalized anxiety disorder also known as GAD
  • Obsessive compulsive disorder
  • Post traumatic stress disorder

 

A person with anxiety disorders may feel alone or hopeless. But with treatment, it is possible to enjoy a healthy and productive life. Anxiety disorder is not a sign of weakness.
