Anxiety in and of itself is not a disease or illness, but turns into a condition when a person becomes physically, psychologically, emotionally, fearful or distraught because of their symptoms. All human beings encounter normal levels of anxiety and fear in response to day-to-day circumstances. In fact, anxiety is a healthy response in many situations. But, when levels of anxiety and fear are excessive, they have an impact on our physical and psychological well-being and should be addressed. The most effective way to overcome issues with anxiety is with the help of an experienced and professional anxiety therapist or counselor.
