ANXIETY

Anxiety is an emotion characterized by an unpleasant state of inner turmoil,


often accompanied by nervous behaviour, such as pacing back and forth,
somatic complaints, and rumination. It is the subjectively unpleasant feelings of
dread over anticipated events, such as the feeling of imminent death. Anxiety is
not the same as fear, which is a response to a real or perceived immediate
threat, whereas anxiety is the expectation of future threat.[3] Anxiety is a feeling
of uneasiness and worry, usually generalized and unfocused as an overreaction
to a situation that is only subjectively seen as menacing.[4] It is often
accompanied by muscular tension, restlessness, fatigue and problems in
concentration. Anxiety can be appropriate, but when experienced regularly the
individual may suffer from an anxiety disorder.

or flight brain response.[5] Anger is used as a protective mechanism to cover up
fear, hurt or sadness. Anger becomes the predominant feeling behaviourally,

take action to immediately stop the threatening behaviour of another outside
force.[6] The English term originally comes from the term anger of Old Norse

Dejection means literally "cast down"that is, "downcast". Like melancholy,


gloom, and even sadness, dejection seems to have been declining in use for
many years; instead, we now seem to prefer depression (whose roots mean
basically "a pressing down"). Since depression is also the word used by doctors,
lots of people now assume that anyone depressed should be taking an
antidepressant; if we went back to dejected and dejection, we might not be so
quick to make that assumption.
