In brief: Excessive worry

Anxiety disorders refer to a persistent pattern of worrying about a variety of real or imagined possible bad events that can occur to the point that it impairs day-to-day functioning.
They can be specitive or global. They are common, often run in families, and can be surprisingly debilitating. They also are quite responsive to various treatments, both talk therapies and medications.
