Unfortunately, anxiety disorders top the list of the most common mental disorder in America, affecting 40 million adults age 18 or older. Even more disturbing, only about one-third of those suffering seek treatment of any kind, which means the majority of people that have an anxiety disorder have not gotten any help whatsoever.
Even though you probably can’t tell outwardly if someone suffers from anxiety, it still haunts them just the same on the inside. Many people with anxiety try to hide their symptoms so that others don’t ridicule them or reject them. Anxiety affects everyone differently, but for those who have it severely, it can completely debilitate them and make everyday life quite difficult.
