What do I recognize an anxiety disorder by?
Feeling excessive anxiety and therefore behaving “differently” is very common! Anxiety has mainly to do with “preparing” yourself for an imminent danger in the (near) future. Fear involves more of a spike in your nervous system to “flee” or “fight” aimed at immediate danger. Sometimes there is fear of doing some (ordinary) things like calling someone, opening letters, meeting strange people. Fear of going shopping or fear of large spaces or open areas (agoraphobia). Sometimes there is fear of certain situations or animals. But we also know fear of flying and extreme fear of heights. But also think of fear of disease or infection (such as COVID-19)
An important point is that the experienced anxiety and/or fear affects your ordinary life and your therefore feel severely limited.
