It’s normal to experience occasional anxiety. BUT, if your experience is an excessive, irrational dread of everyday situations, it can be disabling. When anxiety interferes with daily activities, you may have an anxiety disorder.
Anxiety and depression can occur at the same time. Although each condition has its causes, they may share similar symptoms and treatments.
Anxiety disorders are real, serious medical conditions – just as real and serious as physical disorders such as heart disease or diabetes. Anxiety disorders are the most common and pervasive mental disorders in the US.
If you find yourself experiencing feelings or behaviors that aren’t typical or if something seems off, you must seek help from a professional healthcare provider. It’s always better to talk about what you are feeling and experiencing so that you can undergo treatment at the early stages if it’s necessary.
