Feeling anxious? You’re not alone.

According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S., affecting 40 million adults in the United States alone.

Women experience anxiety more often than men, although the medical world doesn’t know exactly why. It could be that we are more sensitive to stress hormones. Or that our own hormonal changes at different life stages – particularly during peri-menopause and menopause – causes anxiety.

Our guest on Sunday, October 24th, Dawn Fable of the Pause Project, wants to stop the shame and whispering about anxiety and to give women, especially, the Permission to Press Pause.
