Everyone has feelings of anxiety.
It can start as butterflies in the stomach initially all the way to full blown panic attacks. For some people these are passing feelings and they can then go about their lives. For others they can be debilitating and isolating. These feelings can come upon us for seemingly no apparent reason and in the middle of the day or the night. The more you struggle in isolation with these thoughts and feelings the worse they seem to get. It seems that everyone else walking around has it all together which can only exaggerate our feelings of anxiety and isolation! Yet about 40 million adults in America are affected by anxiety each year.
