Yes! Anxiety is a normal part of life - we all have it and sometimes it even helps us to work harder, study harder and achieve what maybe we wouldn't if we didn't have that internal push - it's a normal response to pressure and the feeling usually passes once the situation has passed. However sometimes that feeling of worry, nervousness or unease becomes overwhelming and continues on even after stressful situations have passed. Sometimes it causes your heart to race, butterflies, shortness of breath or even chest pain. Anxiety or excessive worry is not always related to an underlying condition or cause but stress, relationships, work, financial and emotional concerns can all contribute to it. In Australia, 1 in 4 women will experience this type of anxiety in their lifetime. There are a range of treatments and supports for anxiety conditions, as well as a number of things you can do to help yourself. The type of treatment depends on the type of anxiety you are experiencing but the aim is to help you learn how to control your anxiety so it doesn't control you.
