Anxiety is a normal emotion and common experience, and it represents one of the most basic of human emotions. At one time or another, all of us are likely to be “stressed out”, worried about finances or health or the children, fearful in certain situations and concerned what other people think. In general, anxiety serves to motivate and protect an individual from harm or unpleasant consequences.
For many people, however, constant or excessive anxiety disrupts their daily activities and quality of life; for others, panic, which seems to come out of nowhere, can cause terrible physical symptoms, such as faintness, chills, and even extreme chest pains. Anxiety disorders are so common that more than 1 in every 10 Americas will suffer with one some point in their life.
