As we go through our lives, occasional anxiety about things we can and cannot control is inevitable since it’s a normal part of life. However, if the worry and fear persist, resulting to multiple breakdowns that interfere your daily activities, then it is not normal anymore. You may be experiencing what we call anxiety disorder.
Anxiety disorders are characterized by repeated episodes of intense anxiety, fear, or terror. These disrupt daily activities, are difficult to control, disproportionate to the actual danger, and can last for a long time. (www.mayoclinic.org). But these can be treated with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in West Orange, New Jersey.
Here are some types of anxiety disorders:
- Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
It is entailed to a continual sense of anxiety or dread that can disrupt daily life. In fact, people living with GAD experience frequent anxiety for months, if not, years.
- Panic Disorder
Moments of intense fear, discomfort even when there is no obvious threat.
- Social Anxiety Disorder
Social anxiety disorder is characterized by an intense and persistent fear of being observed and judged by others.
- Phobia-Related Disorders
Phobia is a strong aversion or fear of a specific object or situation. Although being anxious in some situations is understandable, the fear that people with phobias experience is out of proportion to the actual danger posed by the situation or object.
