Most stress is helpful as it motivates us to take care of our daily business. Anxiety however is intense worry or fear about what may or may not happen in the future. This is felt in moods- nervousness, irritation, or panic; thoughts- overestimating danger and underestimating ability to deal with the danger and physical reactions- sweaty palms, tense muscles, racing heart, dizziness, tunnel vision or trouble breathing. Treatment is 80% effective. Cognitive behavior therapy and insight oriented therapy along with medications, if needed, are really helpful. Understanding the anxiety and knowing what to do when the symptoms are present goes a long way to restoring a sense of well being
