What are the effects of anxiety?
People who are anxious for some reason have a feeling of being out of control of a situation, constantly imagining the worst outcome or believing there is no hope. This can affect not only their everyday moods but also affect sleep patterns and in some extreme cases a person end up mildly or chronically depressed. Anxiety leads to avoiding all kinds of situations and people. A person suffering from anxiety will avoid meeting new people, may feel inadequate in their jobs or destroy their relationships.
Anxiety and panic attacks
The worst effect common to many sufferers is a sudden but intense feeling of panic, better known as a panic attack. People who suffer from panic attacks also tend to suffer from claustrophobia and/or agoraphobia. This condition unchecked can lead to long term problems which can also to the development of depression.
