On this podcast episode, Dr. Shari Lusskin joins Dr. Nathan Fox to discuss common concerns about anxiety and when its considered “normal.” Situational anxiety because of an upcoming test or stressful event is normal and not always a cause for concern but if the anxiety becomes chronic and affects how you function, it’s a problem that should be addressed with your doctor. In can be difficult for people to figure out on their own because of the non-specific labels used for emotional disorders. Drs. Fox and Lusskin also discuss diagnosis for different disorders and treatment options like systematic desensitization to decrease feelings of anxiety when exposed to phobias or triggers.
