If you’ve ever experienced anxiety, you know how overwhelming it can be.
Anxiety is the body’s response to stress, threats, and fear. Fortunately, anxiety usually goes away once the threat passes — though it probably won’t be the last time you experience it.
If you have an anxiety disorder, however, anxiety can linger well beyond the triggering event and become chronic or severe enough to impair daily functioning.
While you probably can’t banish anxiety altogether, anxiety and anxiety disorders can be treated and managed.
