Everyone suffers occasionally from anxiety; it is an expected part of life. This day-to-day anxiety may be related to a specific upcoming task or event, like starting a trial, or making an important decision. Once the event has occurred, the anxiety fades.
But if you suffer from an anxiety disorder, the anxiety does not go away. You may continue to feel anxious, or feel more anxious over time. An anxiety disorder can interfere with the everyday activities of your life, both personal and professional.
