When Does Anxiety and Fear Become an Anxiety Disorder?
Anxiety disorders occur when the stresses associated with anxiety and fear are not controlled and anxiety treatment is required. Fear and anxiety are words we understand in terms of our everyday living, but are often misunderstood in terms of psychiatric diagnosis and anxiety treatment. Anxiety and fear are not "normal," when they interfere with daily responsibilities or cause a person to become irrational and suffer from constant worry. Anxiety disorders, as they pertain to a psychiatric illness, refer to an uncomfortable and unpleasant emotional tension with no apparent cause. Fear will cause emotional stress due to an identifiable reason, possibly when you go to cross a street and notice a car coming at you.
