Anxiety can affect your ability to enjoy life. You might feel a sense of consistent worry just beneath the surface of your thoughts, making it impossible for you to focus.
Your thoughts might race so quickly that you feel as though your head will explode. Or, you may find yourself obsessing over a small thing and blowing it out of proportion in your mind, imagining the worst-case scenario.
You might experience stomach pain, muscle tension, or headaches. Maybe your feelings of stress and worry have escalated, leading you to think you might be dying. Perhaps you’ve even gone to the emergency room during period of panic.
