Worrying is a common reaction to many things in life. Many times, people worry before facing a challenge. Usually these everyday challenges are tests, interviews, or public speaking. It's completely reasonable to feel worried when you are facing these types of challenges. Anxiety becomes a problem, however, when worry is out of proportion to the outcome or impact of the feared event.
Symptoms of Anxiety
Common themes of worry may be related to health, finances, job responsibilities, safety of one's children or even being late for appointments. When one experiences these types of worry or dread, often times they are accompanied by physical symptoms like muscle tension, headache, frequent urination, difficulty swallowing, "lump in the throat," or even an exaggerated startle response. If you are experiencing these types of worry, you might consider anxiety therapy as an option to begin managing your symptoms.
