Separation Anxiety Disorder

Power feelings of anxiety are triggered by the absence of someone or something that provides a sense of security. Attachment is a word often associated with separation anxiety. The following are signs and symptoms of separation anxiety disorder:
- Anxiety at being separated from loved ones.
- Fear of losing a parent to illness or natural disaster on a regular basis
