Anxiety

If you are suffering from anxiety, you certainly are not alone. In fact, anxiety is the most common mental health complaint. As many as 40 % people in the US suffer from anxiety. Unfortunately, many people do not recognize the symptoms of anxiety and therefore suffer alone. In fact, anxiety is highly treatable using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, commonly called CBT. You can read about CBT here.

I believe the reason many people have difficulty knowing anxiety is a problem, is because in a perfect world anxiety is not only helpful but necessary. We all worry about things. The body has a natural response to fear and loss. However, when worry takes over everyday thinking and interferes with work, sleep and relationships, it is unhealthy anxiety.

Sometimes anxiety starts as a normal response to stress but hangs around longer than necessary or healthy. Anxiety can run in families like hair color or eye color and can affect very young family members as well as the adults.
