Anxiety: Makes us feel all sorts of things. We all experience it & it normally is a warning that something is not right (stress). When we have anxiety in the absence of a real problem, it can be difficult to handle. You may need the help of a counselor & some even need occasional or long-term medications to help control extreme anxiety.
