You feel like you are on the verge of losing your mind. No matter how hard you try, you can’t seem to quiet your worrying thoughts. On the inside, you probably feel dread in the pit of your stomach as a constant reminder that something bad could happen at a moment's notice. This makes it very hard to concentrate or to let your guard down. Constant worry or intrusive thoughts leave you feeling exhausted and irritable. An unspoken consequence of your anxiety is a defeating sense of shame.
