People with anxiety disorders worry excessively and often feel overwhelmed by fear. Worry and fear are natural and normal responses to stress or danger, which is appropriate to these situations and can help people to focus and be alert. The apprehensive feelings that are typical of an anxiety disorder are felt almost every day, and may be overwhelming and difficult to manage.
