Everyone experiences anxiety! It is a normal response for the body in order to protect itself from possible danger. Symptoms such as increased heart rate, sweating, heavier breathing, and shaky hands are all signs that the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight response) are working. Sometimes our minds can play tricks on us though and stimulate the flight or fight response when we are not in imminent danger. That's why it is so important to take a step back, breathe, and try to identify the triggers and what you need to overcome them. Because I promise you- you will overcome them. These feelings can't hurt you. You are the master of your own anxiety.
Anyone, honestly, can be diagnosed with an anxiety disorder, despite who they are.
