Do You Have an Anxiety Disorder?

Life can be wonderful. If you struggle with an anxiety disorder, however, life can also be scary and stressful. Humans are essentially animals. When we are confronted with potential dangers, we naturally adhere to a “fight or flight” set of responses. But if insignificant events trigger these seismic sensations of life or death, then your system needs a check-up.

Anxiety disorders make an individual feel isolated and alienated, but they are extremely common. In fact, it is the most prevalent mental health condition in the United States. Over 40 million American adults experience some sort of anxiety disorder within a given 12-month span of time. This number represents 18.1 percent of the people age 18 or older in the country.

There are several categories of anxiety disorders. While it may seem easy to list them and define them (as we will below), it is much more difficult to determine how anxiety affects you as an individual. Emotions are messy, and they tend to confuse your heart, your head, and your physiology. Is your pulse racing because you’re in love, or are you worried about this afternoon’s budget meeting?

Identifying a problem is the first step in conquering it.

You can get lost in the minutiae of stress or you can take a step back and examine it carefully. The following are the major types of anxiety disorders with which you may be dealing:

  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder – When you bare able to process daily distress in a healthy way, you handle tasks and triumphs in stride. If you have a generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), however, those everyday issues accumulate into inescapable feelings of worry and tension. You may lose sleep and develop sore muscles as a result of GAD, feeling “on edge” even after you have managed an episode that triggered anxiety in the first place.
  • Panic Disorder – When a stressful event happens, it can trigger heart palpitations, sweating, and shaking. This may be a panic attack, and it functions as a warning sign that you need to monitor your wellbeing. If you have the inability to shake the effects of a panic attack, then it could factor into a larger pattern called panic disorder.
  • Phobias – Some fears revolve around specific events or objects. For example, if you are afraid of height, then you may have acrophobia. When phobias dominate your life to the point where you can’t even climb a flight of stairs, then they can be considered debilitating.

No matter what form of anxiety you are experiencing, it is important to assess your situation. The following questionnaire is designed to be that first step. Please try to answer openly and honestly. The only person you would be cheating is yourself.

This quiz is not intended to be an addiction test to self-diagnose, but rather an indication that you may need help. If the following quiz prompts any vulnerabilities or concerns, please contact a trained professional.

      Launch Centers Treatment was a major help to me. The therapists and staff genuinely cared about me and truly helped me to make a plan for my future. My personal therapists helped me to discover where some of my deeper issues came from. All of the staff worked tirelessly with me to talk through my issues, or just about life, and offered realistic solutions to my current problems and situation. All of the staff went above and beyond and advocated relentlessly for me.

    • Jenna S.

      Launch changed our lives. Our family had been battling for years to breakthrough to our brother. No amount of rehab or detox had made a difference. He was listless, lifeless and helpless. We feared for his life everyday. The spirit of, repetition in, core values, appreciation of life and dignity and respect that we found through Launch are unparalleled. I can say with full confidence that we never would have seen my “real” brother again if not for this truly magical combination. We were and still are especially grateful for his over-the-top therapist. Her commitment to his privacy and success coupled with her unwavering contact with any and all of us is what bridged our 3,000 mile separation from him.
