Video Transcription

People don’t seek treatment, then for some people the anxiety can just die down over time. For example, if they have to continue to go into the anxious situation, then generally the anxiety will calm down over time because they’re going into the situation and realising it’s not that dangerous. For other people, if they start to become more avoidant of situations that might trigger their anxiety, it can mean that their life becomes more and more restricted over time, which can have its own implications and difficulties associated with it, such as, it can have an impact on your social relationships and what you feel able to do in your life. In terms of physical health, anxiety doesn’t necessarily have any long-term consequences.
