It's normal to feel anxious before writing a big test, doing a presentation or meeting someone new. This kind of anxiety is short-lived and you can move past it.
Signs of too much anxiety are things like always worrying, trouble sleeping, always being in a bad mood, getting headaches or stomach aches, and hiding out in your room. When you are overwhelmed with anxiety and it interferes with daily tasks, it's time to get help. The longer you go without getting help, the more severe it can become.
