Every woman worries from time to time about her family, job, finances, and health. We often get nervous about meeting new people, traveling to a new place, or having dinner guests. If you’re a woman with heart disease, it’s normal to worry about heart attacks and stroke, and whether you will survive a planned surgery. However, when the worry becomes excessive, constant, and interferes with daily life, these are symptoms of a medical condition called anxiety.
More than just a case of bad nerves, anxiety can cause you to feel so uncomfortable that you become severely distressed or even paralyzed with fear.
