Anxiety Quiz

Is it ordinary worry or an anxiety disorder?

Are racing thoughts impacting your ability to manage stress, concentrate on tasks or engage socially? Do you struggle with chronic feelings of irritation, fatigue or dread? If so, it might be that stress has become overwhelming. Or, it might be an anxiety disorder.

Stress is something we all deal with. It’s our body’s ancient and natural survival instinct to respond to any perceived threat. However, if you are suffering from ever-present tension, fear and unease that you cannot control, that stress may have developed into anxiety, which can have a harmful impact on your everyday life. Perhaps you have attempted to manage or overcome stress on your own, but you can’t seem to shake endless thoughts or feelings of irritability, frustration or fear.

Your struggles may be related to social phobias, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or generalized anxiety. You may be overwhelmed with stress following a major life transition, such as moving, taking on new responsibilities at work, starting a family, etc., or a distressing event, such as the death of a loved one, divorce or termination. Or, you may not know why you feel so overwhelmed.

With everything going on, you may not be sure if you are dealing with a disorder but would like to learn more about your experience with stress. This anxiety test is not meant to diagnose generalized or specific anxieties, but it can call attention to possible indicators that you are suffering from increased or chronic anxiety. For an official diagnosis of an anxiety disorder, you must come in for an appointment.
