Anxiety is a normal emotion that we all experience at times. We get anxiety thinking about paying bills, going through a romantic breakup, or trying to land an important job. We all experience anxiety, sadness or difficulty sleeping shortly after a traumatic event, but usually it goes away in time. Anxiety can also be felt while we are in awkward or embarrassing situations and it can actually help us if we are in a potentially dangerous situation. If feelings of anxiety persist and become seemingly uncontrollable there is a possibility it could be an anxiety disorder.
Anxiety disorders are the most common psychiatric illnesses affecting children and adults. According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA), an estimated 40 million adults in the United States suffer from anxiety disorders and only about one third of those receive treatment.
There are several different anxiety disorders:
- Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD)
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
- Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Panic Disorder and Agoraphobia
- Social Anxiety Disorder.
