What is anxiety?

Anxiety is a normal human emotion that happens in response to stress or anticipation, but experiencing it all the time is disordered thinking. There are many anxiety disorders, with the broadest example being generalized anxiety disorder. 

If you often experience nervousness, fear, or worry about something that wouldn’t cause such emotions for most people, you might have an anxiety disorder.

Living with anxiety can be nerve-wracking and can have a greater impact on your life than you might anticipate. Fortunately, anxiety issues are manageable through expert mental health care.
