During the day we hear people say they are stressed or anxious but do they really know what it means?
Being anxious or stressed is not the same, sometimes to try to explain an emotion or justify a state of mind we usually say that we are stressed and blame the stress of our outbursts.
Although there are similarities between anxiety and stress, they are two different conditions.
It is a state of mind that is characterized by feelings of restlessness, nervousness and worry. It can appear along with some disease such as neurosis, and does not allow people to relax.
When anxiety affects daily life (work situations, personal relationships or school) it becomes an anxiety disorder.
There are several types of anxiety.
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Generalized Anxiety Disorder (ADD), are some types of anxiety and need psychological and psychiatric help to treat.
