Overview

What are you afraid of or worried about right now? While most people face worries in many aspects of their daily lives, it doesn't necessarily manifest itself in daily panic attacks. That doesn't mean it's not there. We've all got fears. Public speaking, important events, and all sorts of things can give us mild to moderate anxiety. Clinical anxiety, however, is still one of the hardest ailments one can have to deal with when it comes to stress.

Most of us have healthy, normal fears. When it's balanced, fear is actually a pretty great defense mechanism. The difference for anxious people is that they fear things that aren't inherently fatal and experience severe reactions to them, like fainting or throwing up. The causes and treatments for this type of anxiety are what you'll learn all about in My Age of Anxiety.

"Being severely anxious is depressing. Anxiety can impede your relationships, impair your performance, constrict your life, and limit your possibilities."
