The mental symptoms of stress and anxiety
Stress and anxiety can show up in a number of ways from feeling guilty, lacking in confidence, over-thinking, low self-esteem and self-judgement. It can even lead to you developing new behaviours, such as those associated with OCD or avoidance of work or social situations.
When stress and anxiety begin to spiral out of control you may experience panic attacks or avoid situations and experiences out of the fear of feeling anxious. You can begin to find it hard to go about your everyday life and do the things that you’d usually enjoy.
