Now there’s what’s normal, how do I know that my anxieties off the roof and I should probably be seeking help, versus just normally anxiety kind of manifests itself a little bit differently. what would be normal things like being worried about how well you’re gonna do on a test, or going in to talk to your boss about your annual review, those are normal things to be anxious about, but if it starts again persisting and crossing against all your life activities, your work your home life and so forth, things become severe.
Some of the things you might see would be someone who is their sleep is really disrupted, they have a lot of muscle tension, they can’t stop thinking about all these worries they are pervasive, so their focus and concentration on their work, or at home, or any place else, they are someplace else and very troubled by it, and sometimes you’ll even see some physical agitation, they may not be able to sit still, they may be restless, those kinds of things.
