Anxiety is a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease. Anxiety is part of the normal repertoire of human emotions, and will typically arise within a stressful life circumstance and will go away once the circumstance is gone.
Anxiety disorders are more complex than normal anxiety and tend to endure beyond momentary fear or dis-ease and can get worse over time. Anxiety disorders can complicate and disrupt every day life.
Among the many types of anxiety disorders are generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, phobias/fears, and social anxiety disorder.
