Anxiety

Does constant worry or fear feel like your new normal? Maybe you experience physical symptoms like a racing heart, shortness of breath, or muscle tension for no apparent reason. Perhaps you avoid certain places or situations because they trigger intense anxiety. These could be signs of an anxiety disorder.

 

Anxiety is a useful tool, but it doesn't have to control your life.

It can manifest in various ways, from generalized worry to specific fears (e.g., elevators, social situations, or life transitions). However, there is effective treatment available.
