There’s anxiousness and then anxiety disorders. While anxiousness may last for a short amount of time like stressing out over a test, that’s not the case with anxiety disorders. For a person with an anxiety disorder, that anxiety can never truly go away. It’s always lingering there, no matter what. It’s like thinking constantly about the things that haven’t happened yet, or even feeling like you’re trapped and there’s no place to go. The main symptom of anxiety disorders is uncontrolled fear and worry. This can also include making it hard to concentrate, stay still, breathe, and sleep. Due to the different symptoms, this can depend on the type of anxiety disorder.
