Anxiety is a feeling of nervousness, apprehension, fear, or worry. Some fears and worries are justified, such as worry about a loved one or in anticipation of taking a quiz, test, or other examination. Problem anxiety interferes with the sufferer's ability to sleep or otherwise function. It is noteworthy that teenagers are particularly susceptible to having irritability as a symptom of a number of emotional problems, including anxiety. Anxiety may occur without a cause, or it may occur based on a real situation but may be out of proportion to what would normally be expected.
Anxiety tends to be shapeless, grating along at a lower level of intensity. Its onset and offset are difficult to time and it lacks level of intensity. Its onset and offset are difficult to time and it lacks clear borders. Anxiety is not a lesser and pale form of fear and in many ways is more difficult to tolerate than fear. It is unpleasant, unsettling, persistent, pervasive, and draining. Intense and prolonged anxiety can be disabling and even destructive.
