DEALING WITH ANXIETY
Occasionally feeling anxious is a normal part of life. As living beings, we have developed this controlled state of stress as a method of survival throughout evolution. However, when this feeling is prolonged in time, it can lead to developing an anxiety disorder.
An anxiety disorder produces a state of constant worry and intense fear which is difficult to control, interfering with daily life and affecting physical health and personal relationships. It can also be aggravated and cause panic attacks and phobias.
To prevent the feelings of anguish and fear, the person suffering them can end up avoiding certain situations, places, or people, conditioning their life to this emotional state.
