Anxiety

AnxietyAnxiety is a normal human emotion that is useful in numerous ways, but it can get out of hand and become a problem for some people. In general, anxiety is a reaction to a problem or another source of stress in life. For people with an anxiety disorder, the emotion is intensified so much that they are unable to effectively function in society. The longer it is left untreated or ignored, the more serious the problem may become.

Most who suffer from this disorder begin to get anxious and nervous in anticipation of a bad situation. Anxiety is normal in some circumstances, but if it appears often and is intense, it may be a sign of a panic disorder, especially if the anxiety is caused by situations that shouldn’t normally cause anxiety. As you read about the symptoms of anxiety disorder, it’s important to remember that help is available.

Symptoms of Anxiety

When talking about anxiety, there are two major emotions that are commonly exhibited - nervousness and worry. These can become so intense they have an actual physical effect on a person's body. One sign of negative anxiety is if the worry is unnecessary. For example, some people may worry about things they can't change. This can lead to destructive cycles of thoughts that cause a person distress.

It is actually quite easy for anxiety to go from a normal human emotion to a serious problem that can hamper a person's ability to live a full and productive life. This is why getting help with anxiety is a good idea for some people. Anxiety has a place in life of most modern people, but too much stress over inconsequential matters can have a destructive effect on a person’s life.
