Anxiety vs Anxiety Disorder

The TED talk titled “What’s normal anxiety — and what’s an anxiety disorder?” goes into depth on what anxiety disorders are. Dr. Jen Gunter explains that anxiety is an emotion related to fear and is a very real and normal emotion. Dr. Jen Gunter gives a breakdown of where anxiety starts, often in the brains amygdala which triggers our body into flight or fight mode. Just like any other health condition, Dr. Gunter takes the time to explain that just because anxiety is not a visible health concern, it is as real as visible health concerns.
