Work can be stressful. That is a known fact. Everyone throughout the course of their lives experience feelings of anxiety as a normal reaction to stress they feel at work. This anxiety is what assists us in coping with the stresses and situations we face in everyday life. There are times though, that anxiety becomes so severe that it will lead you to despise even getting up to face what is going to happen during that day. When this type of anxiety occurs, it becomes a debilitating disorder that is recognized by the Americans with Disabilities Act.
The five major types of anxiety disorders are:
• Generalized Anxiety Disorder
• Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
• Panic Disorder
• Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
• Social Anxiety Disorder
Anxiety is the most common mental illness in the United States. Those people who suffer from such severe anxiety are three times more likely to have a substance abuse problem and suffer eating and sleeping disorders.
Anxiety disorders present with both emotional and physical symptoms including:
• Upset stomach
• Frequent urination
• Feelings of apprehension
• Trouble concentrating
• Feeling jumpy or jittery
Anxiety can prevent you from being able to perform typical, everyday activities, and perform in a work environment.
