What is Anxiety?

Anxiety in and of itself is not a bad thing.  Someone has to worry about paying the bills, and someone has to have just enough fear to make sure the doors are locked and everyone is safe at night.  There are reasons to be cautious and reasons to be careful.  Anxiety, in fair amounts, helps us make good decisions and stay well.
