Abnormal anxiety is a subjective state of apprehension and uneasiness affecting your whole being. It can cause rapid heartbeat, muscle tension or sweating, and can sabotage your ability to act, express yourself, or deal with certain everyday situations. At its most extreme, it can cause you to feel detached from yourself or think that you are going crazy.
Unfortunately, many people who suffer from abnormal anxiety do so in silence - not recognising that they have an actual anxiety disorder which can be treated.
Anxiety disorders are brought on by a variety of causes, including heredity, biology, family background and upbringing, conditioning, recent stressors, your self-talk and personal belief system, and your ability to express feelings.
It is important to remember that knowing what causes your anxiety does not necessarily cure it. Many of the strategies used to overcome anxiety - such as relaxation, exercise and dealing with feelings - do not depend on knowledge of what causes the anxiety to be effective.
