Anxiety looks and feels different for everyone. How you experience anxiety may not be the same as your friend describes it or from what you hear and see on social media. We know that sometimes it can be difficult to explain how you’re feeling, so below are some common symptoms to help you identify whether or not Anxiety is something you should bring up during your appointment.
Excessive Worry: You find yourself filled with apprehensive expectations more days than not about one or more activities (like work or school).
Racing Thoughts: Your mind feels like it’s going too fast to catch up, and you can’t seem to slow it down.
You Feel Restless or on Edge: Even when you’re doing something relaxing, you feel like you have to be moving or doing something more.
Easily Fatigued: You feel really tired easily, even after you do an activity that you don’t think should be tiring (like dishes or laundry).

Irritability: You feel easily annoyed or made angry, usually by smaller things that wouldn’t typically bother you as much.
