A person suffering from one of the anxiety disorders usually feels intense and irrational fear, as if something dreadful is about to happen. The person is not out of contact with reality; the dreadful feeling does not render the person incapable of coping with daily life. Instead, this feeling makes the person miserable. The feeling is common to the anxiety disorders and that is what brings anxiety disorders into a class (Stein, Young, 1998).
