Anxiety, [ang-zahy-i-tee], noun, plural anxieties.  "A feeling of worry or unease about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome . . . an abnormal and overwhelming sense of apprehension and fear often marked by physiological signs, by doubt concerning the reality and nature of the threat, and by self-doubt and one's capacity to cope with it."  Sound familiar?  A little bit of anxiety keeps us on our toes; too much knocks us down.
