Anxiety can be seen as a customary, yet unpleasant part of life that can affect us all in different ways. It can manifest in your daily commute across Melbourne or through a more deep seated issue developed at a younger age. If you are suffering from this issue you may feel irritable, tense, nervous, uptight or wound up. Common in all these complaints is the overwhelming effect of the body producing too much adrenaline. This results in physical symptoms that can affect us in a negative way.
The apprehension of this condition, which causes palpitations and shaking, creates even more adrenaline, resulting in a vicious circle. For some people anxiety is a temporary state that passes when the source of stress subsides. For others it becomes a long-term condition that affects their lives and those of their loved ones.
It is normal and healthy to feel sad or worried about life and its problems and pressures. But when a worry casts a cloud over everyday well-being, you may be suffering from anxiety, depression or a mixture of the two.
