Anxiety disorder is a constant or nearly constant state of arousal centered around negative expectations. It involves the whole body. If you or your loved one has been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder, anxiety treatment is available today.
What Anxiety Is
Anxiety is both a physical and mental state of worry and negative expectations. Multiple systems of the body are involved, which creates physically unpleasant effects. Most people experience occasional bouts of temporary anxiety. This can be helpful to survival in an emergency, and it serves the purpose of self-preservation when it occurs on a short-term basis.
However, anxiety turns into a disorder when it persists for more than two weeks. When the worries and arousal affect your or your loved one’s ability to work, socialize, go to school or perform other essential daily activities, it’s important to seek treatment.
