You feel nervous and on edge all the time and find it difficult to stop worrying about things that haven’t even happened yet and may never happen. Your thoughts are racing all the time.
If this sounds familiar, you may be experiencing Anxiety.
What is Anxiety?
Anxiety is a common and necessary warning response to what we perceive as danger. However, if it becomes too intense, it can lead to feeling overwhelmed and can significantly impact on our everyday life.
According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), one in 4 Australians will experience Anxiety in their lifetime1. If left untreated it can become debilitating. You are likely to become so drained and find it difficult to concentrate and often forget things. It could affect how you interact with others and what you do as you are likely to constantly worry about what people think of you and at times resulting in becoming home bound.
