These feelings and symptoms are common for those suffering from a condition called anxiety disorder. Although anxiety is a normal, natural, and an often necessary emotion, sometimes it can take on extreme forms and negatively impact our ability to function.
You may be thinking to yourself – there’s no way anxiety is normal or necessary! But in some cases, anxiety can actually be helpful. Anxiety can help us cope with certain situations, and even motivate us to work harder and stay focused on solving problems. In general, anxiety can help us better manage challenges in our daily lives. Feelings of anxiety are normal in situations like your first day of work, test taking, or moving to a new place. Although these feelings are unpleasant, they are often short-lived and don’t affect your daily routine. Feelings of anxiety aren’t fun to experience, but when anxiety is managed, it can help us navigate specific tasks and journeys.
However, for some people, this is far from their reality. Anxiety can become excessive and debilitating. It can negatively impact your daily life and prevent you from doing the things you love and seeing the people you love. Living with an anxiety disorder may lead individuals to self-sabotage, isolate themselves from friends and family, and miss out on the joys in life.
