It is not unusual to start having worries or fears about a situation during times of stress. You might be worried about exams, or about a big presentation that you have to do for your company. These fears are perfectly natural and happen to every one of us. However, when those fears don’t go away, or start occurring during periods of relative calm, you know that you need extra help to make those feelings less overwhelming.
