Anxiety can become a problem if it impacts on your ability to live your life as fully as you want to. For example, it may be a problem for you if:
your feelings of anxiety are very strong or last for a long time.
your fears or worries are out of proportion to the situation.
you avoid situations that might cause you to feel anxious.
your worries feel very distressing or are hard to control.
you regularly experience symptoms of anxiety, which could include panic attacks.
you find it hard to go about your everyday life or do things you enjoy.
