Anxiety Disorder can show up at any point in your life.
It is normal to feel anxious when you are about to face certain situations in life, such as speaking in public, a job interview, travelling to a country you have never been to. Everyone gets nervous or anxious from time to time.

It is important to learn what triggers your anxiety. Family, school, work or something else?
Anxiety comes in many forms:

It is hard to classify as everyone deals with anxiety and worry in their own way, but if your daily life is significantly filled with constant worry, causing suffering and dysfunction then you may be suffering from anxiety disorder.
