Is anxiety life threatening?
Untreated anxiety can increase your risk of more severe, even life-threatening conditions such as, depression, suicidal thoughts and even physical illnesses due to chronic stress. It’s important to seek professional help in order to manage and prevent more severe feelings of anxiety.
Can I suffer from multiple anxiety disorders?
