If Constant Worry Makes Life Difficult, It Could Be An Anxiety Disorder

If Constant Worry Makes Life Difficult, It Could Be An Anxiety Disorder

Anxiety disorders cause both emotional and physical symptoms.

We all feel anxious when taking a final exam or waiting on potentially bad news. Our body automatically responds when we feel scared or threatened, preparing us to fight or to run from danger. Occasional anxiety is a survival instinct that served our ancestors well. We may not have run-ins with charging mammoths these days, but this response still works.

Supportive Care Program Encourages Patient Through Decades Of Hospitalizations

"When I am hospitalized, it can be a scary. Boone does everything it can to make things better for me. I’m Catholic, and I appreciate having a priest come to my bed and praying with me during my stay and even bring me communion,” says Cindy. “I also love how the volunteers bring me cards from my family and friends during my stay. I hold them close to me while I sleep and they make me feel so much better. I even get massages and manicures right in my hospital bed! There is nothing like human touch to make you feel better when you are ill. This is a very special place.”
