That sweaty, gut-clenching, suffocating, racing-heart feeling ... ... That dull, never-ending sense that something's wrong. What is it? Anxiety. And it affects millions of young North Americans today. When anxiety has you in its grip, it can seem impossible to rationalize your way out of it. From phobias to compulsiveness to post traumatic stress disorder, Freaking Out chronicles the many guises of excessive anxiety in teens' lives and the havoc it can wreak.
