Thereare many problems resulting from anxiety. However, research showsthat women are more prone to anxiety and anxiety disorders than menare. I agree with Jennifer that women tend to worry more than men do,sometime this leads to them suffering from long-term illnesses.However, men indulge themselves in activities that reduce stress.

Womentend to worry and stress themselves more with the day-to-day issues.This excessive worry interferes with their lifestyle, relationshipswith their family members especially their partners. In addition,worry leads to loose of sleep, or how they perform at work. Theexcessive worry makes them panic on how their partners would treatthem. For example, they worry they might be beaten up by theirpartners, or live in fear that their partners would rape them(Kearney&amp Trull, 2015). Excessive worry in women makes them develop poor eating habits thatmay make them to be obese or be under nutritional. Research showsthat chronic anxiety can lead to long-term illness such as depressionthat would require treatment or help from a specialist (Stein&amp Vythilingum, 2015). However, men do not experience as much anxiety disorders as womenbecause they spend time working outside, communicating with people atwork, involved in different activities such as driving that are knownas treatment for anxiety disorders.

Researchshows that women tend to worry more than men do, leading them todevelop disorders that interfere with their daily activities and howthey relate to their loved one. In extreme conditions, it can lead toterminal illnesses and interfere with their thinking abilities andself-esteem if not treated. However, men are less affected becausethey do this that are associated with treatment of anxiety disorder.

Inthe daily walk in life, every person experiences panic or anxiety indifferent stages of their life. However, I agree with Haydee thatwomen experience more anxiety than men do. This is because of thedifferent responsibilities they have in life, experiences that theyhave gone through, and hormonal changes.

Firstly,most women grow up knowing that it is their responsibility to takecare of their children and partner. This may make them feel anxiouswhen their relationship does not work out well, or their children arenot okay. It makes them work harder to feed their families. They dotwo or three jobs, since some of the women jobs are low paying andwant to meet the needs of their children (McLean&amp Woody, 2001).In addition, women go to extremes to protect their families thisdeprives them happiness and can lead to anxiety. Secondly, some womenhave gone through different experiences in their lives. For example,some women are victims of rape, faced harassment from co- workers,while others have been assaulted physical in their up bring. This hasled to anxiety among women in their different stages in life, whenthey face a situation that reminds them of the past. Thirdly, allwomen go through different hormonal changes in different stages oftheir lives. Some of these changes may lead to anxiety, since theydo not know how to handle the phase or the experiences are painfulfor them (Stein&amp Vythilingum, 2015).

Inconclusion, it is very true that all human being go through anxiety.However, women face more anxiety than men do. This is because of theupbringing they got. The things they went through as they grew, andthe hormonal changes that they have to go through, as they grow olderin life.
