Anxiety Disorder and Receiving Social Security Disability
Anxiety disorder is a blanket term for several different forms of abnormal, pathological anxiety, phobia and fears. Anxiety disorder refers to nervous system disorders as irrational or illogical worry not based on fact.
There are several types of anxiety disorders. Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), panic disorder, phobic disorders, separation anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, and stress disorders are examples of the various types of anxiety disorders.
An anxiety disorder is a serious condition that is characterized by several things. It is characterized by extreme, chronic anxiety which disturbs thought, mood, behavior and/or physiological activity.
Anxiety disorder is a large problem in the United States. About 19,000,000 adults have some kind of anxiety disorder in America according to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH).
There are many different ways that an anxiety disorder may affect you. Some of these are:
Constant, chronic, unfounded worry that causes significant stress and upsets your social life
Avoiding common social situations for fear of being humiliated, judged or being embarrassed
Random, repeated panic attacks, and fear of future panic attacks
Feelings of approaching catastrophe and terror
Irrational fear or staying away from a situation, place or object where there is no real danger
Doing things over and over, uncontrollably
Recurring, ongoing nightmares or flashbacks to a traumatic event that happened several months or years ago.
