Anxiety disorders
•    Don’t confuse an anxiety disorder with passing anxiety or stress. Anyone can feel anxious or stressed if, for example, they have an important event, have to give a speech or take an exam, and this is totally normal.

•    People with anxiety disorders experience intense and prolonged distress over unrealistic or exaggerated fears.

•    They perceive situations or events as being more dangerous than they really are.

•    They are constantly preoccupied by their fears and discomforts and this inhibits their ability to function in everyday life (school, work, etc.) and in their personal relationships.

•    An anxiety disorder can cause physical malaise such as dizziness, chest pain, palpitations, hot flashes, and sleeping and concentration problems.

•    Anxiety disorders can affect children, teenagers, and adults.

•    There are several types of anxiety disorders, including social phobia, panic disorder, specific phobias (e.g. spiders), obsessive-compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder.

•    If you experience persistent, intense, or excessive fear or anxiety that prevents you from functioning on a day-to-day basis, you should see a doctor or other professional for help.
