We all experience anxiety almost every day of our life. Stressors come from various work, school, family and even friends. All of us from time to time have experienced anxiety and have been affected by the anxiety of others. For some, these feelings are short lived. But for others, anxiety is persistent affected the way we function on the job or our relationships at home.

Anxiety disorders characterized by significant feelings of anxiety intense worry and fear. The may include persistent worry about future events or fearful reactions to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a fast heart rate and shakiness. Anxiety may have multiple behavioral manifestations such as angry verbal outbursts that include: harsh words, derogatory comments and threat. These behavioral manifestations can be destructive to relationships with long-term effect. And there’s a domino effect to anxiety. It’s hard to find joy on the job, in school or at home when one feels continual uptight or under duress.

There are a number of anxiety disorders including:

These disorders differ in their symptoms and in severity. People often have more than one anxiety disorder. Anxiety may be caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Risk factors include a history of explosive agitation, inability to perform at work, difficulty focusing at school and a disruption of family relationships. Other problems that may result including medical conditions such as hyperthyroidism and heart disease. Individuals may also engage in substance abuse as a form of medication such as extreme caffeine intake, cigarette smoking alcohol abuse and other forms of drug abuse. It is estimated that approximately 12% of people are affected by at least one form of an anxiety disorder in a particular year and that between 5-30% of people are affected at some point in their life.
