Stress/Anxiety is not just worrying. It can actually be at the root of other conditions, such as panic, insomnia, attention-deficit disorders etc. In many instances, someone suffering from either of these will develop maladaptive coping skills that lead to avoiding people, places, and specific interactions. Making plans is a chure in itself. This feeling can be reduced and managed through several types of stress reduction therapy. And often times, people see results within a relatively short period of time.
