Understanding Anxiety.

Living with an anxiety disorder is an awful condition – the symptoms, though unique to each kind of disorder – can interfere with creating and maintaining personal relationships, seeking and earning professional success, and in some cases, can even be physically debilitating.

Undoubtedly, they cause more problems than we can adequately assess with our clinical tools.
