Anxiety Disorders

What is Anxiety? It’s like a false alarm in your body telling you something is wrong. You think you need to decide to do something. It’s your brain saying I need to pay attention to this thing, whatever it is-a feeling, thought, or situation. This is called the flight or fight response. Thoughts may be irrational (well they most likely are). Behaviors such as avoidance and reassurance-seeking often evolve during anxiety and tend to make it worse.
