Things you need to know about anxiety

Anxiety is a normal part of life – we all experience fear and worry when faced with possible danger. However, for some people anxiety can start to take on a life of its own. Persistent feelings of fear, worry and panic can start to affect many aspects of life. People with severe anxiety may find that they are avoiding situations to keep their anxiety at bay, thereby limiting their lives.
