Basically, anxiety is your body's natural response to stress. It appears when you're anxious and scared about what's coming in the future. You're just scared about something that you're unsure of. If you've experienced it, I'm sure you know how to actually feels. If you've never experienced it, I'll pray and hope that you'll never have one. God knows how much it hurts.
If you'd want me to simplify it, anxiety makes you nervous, anxious, restless and scared of everything that ever happened and will happen in your life. At one point, you'll just break down... I'm not gonna continue with what's next. It could trigger something that shouldn't be touched.
