What Girls Said 2
Anxiety is a feeling of fear , nervousness , worry and unease. It's normal to feel so in certain situations , but when that feeling becomes constant or is easily triggered by irrational reasons , it becomes a disorder and one can also experience Anxiety or Panic Attacks which seems the case with your friend. I suffer from Anxiety as well , trust me it's one of the most terrible things in life that can affect the way you behave and think in a negative and deep way , so never belittle what they are going through , they really need help. You have to encourage them to visit a psychotherapist. Anxiety can drive someone to the point of hating their life , Anxiety isn't fun.0

It's when the nerves in part of your brain ( the amygdala) are firing more often than they should. It can just be a chemical imbalance or the way you are wired up or can be the result of trauma or experiences. It can be temporary or a permanent part of your character.1
