Anxiety, a generalized feeling of apprehension, fear, or tension, is healthy if it is a response to a real danger or threat. Normal anxiety prompts us to take useful action. Anxiety is abnormal if it is out of proportion to the seriousness of the situation, if it does not fade soon after the danger has passed, or if it interferes with a person’s social and work activities. In such instances, a person may be suffering from one of many types of anxiety disorders.
