Anxiety No More 1 of 12

If you struggle with any level of anxiety, you know that it's one of the most frightening feelings you can have. Once you are set off, you can become almost paralyzed by fear, unable to take care of even basic tasks. When these attacks happen at night, it can make it nearly impossible to fall asleep, which then affects your behavior throughout the entire day.
