Mood & Anxiety Disorders
What is it?
It’s often the case that eating orders are accompanied by co-occurring disorders such as Mood and Anxiety Disorders. The way in which these disorders can manifest themselves within an individual varies from person to person.
Anxiety and mood issues many times go hand-in-hand. When someone suffers from these disorders they do not respond the same way the average individual would respond to circumstances or situations. It’s not normal stress or worrying, but rather the level of angst and unstable moods over a period of time which is not considered normal.
