Anxiety

Everyone feels anxious (worried, nervous) from time to time. For example, it's normal to feel some anxiety when we're under stress, e.g. studying for an exam, preparing for a job interview, or being worried about making a good impression on that first date. In fact, some anxiety can help motivate a person to do their best. But when anxiety gets to be too much, or lasts for too long at time, it can become a disabling disorder. Too much anxiety can cause rapid heartbeat, shortness of breath, dizziness, dry mouth and nausea. People with excessive anxiety can have trouble falling or staying asleep, have a hard time concentrating, or feel irritable. The good news is that there is help. If you have been feeling anxious for over six months or feel that anxiety is getting in the way of your life, speak to your doctor or schedule an appointment with a mental health professional.
