Worry is a very normal and useful emotion that we all experience. In fact, even though worry feels pretty uncomfortable at times, we need it to motivate ourselves in life. However, anxiety can begin to feel like it’s out of control and become an anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders have a lot of different features. There are many different types of anxiety disorders, but what they all have in common is there is a fundamental inability to function in life that occurs. So if you notice that your worry has become so overwhelming that you’re unable to function in your roles – such as at work, at home or in relationships – then that’s a sign that it might be time to get treatment, as you may be experiencing an anxiety disorder.
