Anxiety & Depression Treatment Services in St. Davids, PA
The ability to focus on a task without getting distracted is something that some people are better at than others. Everyone gets distracted from time to time, but most people are able to maintain focus when called upon to do so. Not everyone with attentional difficulties has ADHD. After all, difficulty focusing is a common symptom of both depression and anxiety. But there are some individuals who, from a very young age, struggle with inattention, hyperactivity, impulsivity, or a combination of these symptoms which can lead to anxiety. Children and adolescents are particularly prone to the physical symptoms of anxiety, as their bodies often “speak” for them. Patients with anxiety disorders frequently present with excessive worry, irrational fears, and overthinking.
