What is Anxiety?
Anxiety disorders consist of generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, specific phobias, panic disorder, and agoraphobia. These conditions are characterized by an intense state of worry and fear resulting from a threatening event or life stressor. Of course, these feelings can be normal in cases of everyday stress or serious life stressors, and individuals usually overcome this worry once the stressor dissipates. In individuals with this disorder, however, their state of worry becomes more intensified over time.
