Anxiety disorders, like panic disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder, are more common than most people realize. Over 19 million adults in America suffer from these chronic conditions, which can seriously interfere with work and personal relationships. Unlike the relatively mild, brief anxiety caused by a stressful event (such as speaking in public or a first date), anxiety disorders last at least 6 months and can get worse if they are not treated. It's important to realize that they can also be accompanied by depression, eating disorders, substance abuse or another anxiety disorder, compounding the problem. In some cases, these other illnesses need to be treated before a person will respond to treatment for the anxiety disorder.
Effective treatments are available that can help most people with anxiety disorders lead productive, fulfilling lives. If you think you have an anxiety disorder, you should seek information and treatment right away.
