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.

be blessed.

I finally accepted what people have been telling me. I am full of knowledge and wisdom and I am unforgettable. My word of encouragement since 2015 has been to let others know, despite the waves and ripples in our lives, Life is totally awesome, even with a mental illness. I believe my purpose is to encourage others, advocate for those around me who have not yet found their voice to advocate for themselves and educate those without a mental illness. If for one for minute someone laughs or smiles because of something I said, that is one moment they did not think about mental illness.
