Anxiety and Depression New York

You know you are experiencing anxiety when you have excessive worry, panic attacks, phobias, and a mind that will just not shut off and let you sleep!

Imagine this scenario: You are on the subway. The subway gets crowded and stops underground. After a few minutes, you notice your heart rate increase, palms sweat, and lightheadedness. You immediately begin thinking: “I am going to die! I am going crazy! I have to get out before I suffocate!”

What was described in the previous paragraph is a panic attack. Panic attacks are categorized by sudden and intense feelings of fear and anxiety along with physiological sensations.

Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) is moderate to severe anxiety and worrying that interferes with daily life. GAD suffers are the constant worriers who catastrophize the worst case scenario in every situation: Getting an email from a boss leads to a sleepless night obsessing whether this means the end of employment.
