Hopefully these examples will let you know if these worries are something to discuss in more detail with your therapist/ psychiatrist. These are just a couple of comparisons of everyday anxiety vs. Anxiety disorder:
Everyday anxiety would be when you worry about paying bills, landing a job, a romantic breakup, or other important life events vs. Constant and unsubstantiated worry that causes significant distress and interferes with daily life. This would be due to anxiety disorder.
Another example of everyday anxiety is: A case of nerves or sweating before a big test, business presentation, stage performance, or other significant event vs. Anxiety disorder: Seemingly out-of-the-blue panic attacks and the preoccupation with the fear of having another one.
These comparisons and others are on the Anxiety and Disorder Association of America website. Please visit them at http://www.adaa.org/understanding-anxiety.
