Understanding the Facts

Anxiety helps us get out of harm’s way and prepare for important events, and it warns us when we need to take action.


But you may experience anxiety that is persistent, seemingly uncontrollable, and overwhelming. If it’s an excessive, irrational dread of everyday situations, it can be disabling. When anxiety interferes with daily activities, you may have an anxiety disorder.
