Everyone feels anxious sometimes. But people with clinical anxiety feel it stronger and more often.
Anxiety is an umbrella term that really encompasses a variety of conditions that cause distress and keep you from carrying on with your normal life. It is sometimes a problematic and troubling emotion which interferes with not only activities but also relationships. For some people, their experience of worry and anxiousness is not temporary but an almost daily struggle. This type of chronic anxiousness can be overwhelming, to the point of complete immobilization.
