Anxiety makes you feel fearful and out of control.
It happens to all of us as part of a natural fight or flight response structured into our makeup for survival.
However when you are feeling anxious more often than not, developing physical symptoms and it’s stopping you from contributing to normal activities in your life then you may be diagnosed with an anxiety disorder.
Living with anxiety is challenging but possible, there are all types of help out there to support your mental health such as counselling, medication and coping strategies.
