What is Anxiety?
Anxiety is the most common mental health problem in the United States. There are many types of anxiety disorders, and they can affect people of all ages. Anxiety is more common than depression and bipolar disorder—over one in four Americans will experience an anxiety disorder at some point during their lifetime. People with anxiety disorders experience heightened nervousness and unease. While everyone gets anxious from time to time, people with anxiety disorders have persistent, debilitating feelings of fear and worry that interfere with daily life. There are several types of anxiety disorders, including social anxiety disorder (SAD), generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), panic disorder, and agoraphobia.
What Having Anxiety Symptoms Looks Like
Some Common Anxiety Symptoms Might be:
- Nervousness, restlessness or being tense
- Feelings of danger, panic or dread
- Rapid breathing or hyperventilation
- Increased or heavy sweating
- Trembling or muscle twitching
- Weakness or lethargy
- Difficulty focusing or thinking clearly about anything other than the thing you’re worried about
- Obsessions about certain ideas, a sign of obsessive-compulsive disorder
- Anxiety surrounding a particular life event or experience that has occurred in the past, a sign of post-traumatic stress disorder
Anxiety might look like this:
- Anticipating and fearing the worst in any situation. It may be fearing your or someone else’s death, illness anxiety, or being fired from your job.
- Waking up drenched in sweat or feeling like you are dying
- Avoiding social situations, getting together, or spending time with others for fear of what others might think about you
- Not being able to drive your car (i.e., driving anxiety)
- Unable to sit down and focus on one task. And, maybe when you try, you still find that you are fidgeting, your leg is shaking,
- Not being able to sleep, even though you are so tired, because you have a million and one things bouncing around in your brain, and you just can’t turn it off!
- Replaying every conversation you have ever had with anyone.
- Making list after list, but never getting all the way through, and never feeling accomplished.
