What is Anxiety
  • Anxiety is an unpleasant feeling of nervousness
    and worry, which is often accompanied by
    impulsive nervous behaviors. These feelings could
    include overly anticipating or dreading upcoming
    or hypothetical events, or in general just
    relentlessly worrying about events that havent
    even happened yet. It differs from fear in that
    fear is a response to an immediate threat, while
    anxiety generally involves the anticipation of a
    future threat. Anxiety is sometimes generalized
    as an overreaction to situations that most people
    wouldnt subjectively find to be too dramatic.
  • Anxiety can seem appropriate when some people do
    face unthinkable circumstances. It can even be
    productive at times because it can serve as tool
    to help drive someone to conquer a future threat.
    When an individual regularly experiences
    prolonged episodes of extreme anxiety lasting up
    to six months or more and interferes with their
    everyday living though, they may suffer from an
    anxiety disorder. The severity of some of these
    cases can be debilitating if left untreated and
    the symptoms of each individuals case must be
    examined by a licensed physician to properly
    assess the actual level of threat to the
    individual in comparison to how the individual
    actually perceives the threat.

Types of Anxiety
  • Everyone experiences anxiety at some point or
    another in their lives. While anxiety is a very
    normal emotion that people experience when they
    feeling the oncoming of a threat, anxiety
    disorders are a different problem all together.
    The difference between normal feelings of anxiety
    and anxiety disorders usually lie in the severity
    of symptoms. Anxiety can be a very unpleasant
    feeling, but it usually subsides at some point.
    Anxiety disorders can be very disruptive to ones
    life and interfere with their day to day
    lifestyle if left untreated. In some cases with
    anxiety disorders, symptoms of anxiety can be so
    extreme that they can be immobilizing and leave
    the person incapable of carrying on with their
    daily obligations.

Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
  • Panic Disorder
  • This is the most common type of anxiety disorder.
    It can be defined as a continuous state of
    physical and/or mental tension and nervousness,
    with the inability to break away from the
    anxiety. People who suffer from GAD find
    themselves feeling constantly agitated, anxious
    and stressed out. This constant stress tends to
    be very disruptive to their daily lives. In cases
    like this one, anxiety can occur for no reason
    and leave the person feeling miserable and
    incapable of properly dealing with everyday
  • This is a debilitating anxiety disorder that can
    bring about bouts of anxiety so severe that
    hospitalization may be required. This type of
    anxiety disorder is characterized by panic
    attacks, which are episodes of extreme anxiety
    that can cause excessive sweating, tingling
    sensations, numbness or weakness of body,
    dizziness, difficulty breathing, rapid heartbeat,
    digestive problems and depersonalization.

Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
  • Specific Phobias
  • Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • People sometimes attach feelings of intense and
    irrational fear to other specific scenarios or
    objects. Phobias are generally characterized by
    disastrous thinking where the person believes
    that the worst possible scenario could happen.
    Such objects that could be subject to phobias
    include spiders, snakes, blood or airplanes.
    Often a person may try to avoid any and all
    situations where the feared object could possibly
    be present. Just like with social phobia, people
    will engage in avoidance behaviors. They are
    often incapable of controlling their fears and
    experience restrictions to their normal daily
    routine because their constant fear could
    interfere with it.

  • PTSD is an anxiety disorder that occurs after a
    traumatic event. Those who suffer from PTSD
    oftentimes must seek outside help. This is
    because the residual effects of PTSD can be long
    term and may even last for the remainder of ones
    life if it is left untreated. In many cases,
    patients with PTSD will often relive the
    traumatic event mentally and physically and can
    become disconnected with reality. Like panic
    attacks, these episodes may have some triggers
    that initiate them, but in some cases they may
    occur without any real warning.

Symptoms of Anxiety
  • Anxiety is a common human emotion that everybody
    falls victim to at one point of another. Trying
    to make the grade in school, workplace stressors,
    financial insecurity or even just the fear of
    heights are all examples of examples of anxiety.
    Some of these healthy stressors drive people to
    be more productive, whether it be to earn more
    money or complete specific tasks by deadlines.
    However, for some, feelings of anxiety can be so
    intense and so frequent, that it instead
    interferes with their life.

    anxiety often require a comprehensive and

    to help people who are struggling with an anxiety
    disorder and struggle to carry through with their
    day to day lives. These medications help to
    reduce the occurrence of anxiety symptoms and
    help to correct some physiological imbalances
    that can occur as the result of anxiety
    disorders. Anxiety medications, normally referred
    to as anti-anxiety medications, should only be
    used under the supervision of a doctor and any
    and all side effects that one may be experiencing

    valuable tool to help some of the physiological
