Is anxiety harmful?
Anxiety is fear. While everyone experiences fear (anxiety),
those who develop anxiety disorder experience fear more frequently
and to higher degrees than others.
Sustained high fear can over stress the body, and a stressed
body can become symptomatic. Short bursts of high stress are
relatively harmless, but when stress remains persistently high,
it can cause harm. In fact, it's commonly thought that 94 percent
of all illness is caused or aggravated by stress. So persistent
high stress isn't something to be taken lightly.
