"Why am I anxious about everything?"
Some anxiety is normal. It is a normal response to threat and has evolutionary survival benefits. It keeps you and your family safe. Although we all occasionally encounter situations that provoke panic and fear, for some people anxiety invades their lives, affecting mood, sleep and relationships; it is like an emotional paralysis and debars them from engaging in activities that they could otherwise enjoy. It can leave you distressed and emotionally exhausted.
Sometimes global persistent anxiety is known as Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD). Perhaps you recognise symptoms of anxiety in yourself such as sweating, racing pulse, hypervigilance, racing thoughts, tremor, pressure in your chest, blurred vision, feeling "on edge" and thinking that something awful might happen.
