Anxiety is a very unpleasant state of inner turmoil which may seriously impacts ones life, including thoughts, feelings, and actions. We all often experience this - it is a completely normal human emotion. Often before making an important decision, getting into a unfamiliar position such as a plane ride, or even taking a test - anxiety may be present. It can also act as a motivator to take action when necessary. However, when anxiety hinders normal behavior and functioning, it can then be said that one suffers from an anxiety problem or disorder.
An anxiety disorder is a very serious mental illness, and should not be taken lightly. People with anxiety disorders constantly struggle with fear and the feeling of being overwhelmed, amongst many other symptoms.
There are many forms of treatment available for anxiety, and a physician should always be consulted to see what form of medication would work best. There are many types of behavioral therapies which may be beneficial, as well as various medications which may help eliminate symptoms.
The Canadian Government recognizes anxiety as a disability. Therefore, if you struggle with this disability you may be entitled to benefits.
