More than a third of women with a common heart disorder are misdiagnosed with anxiety, according to a study by researchers at Allegheny University of the Health Sciences. Only 4 percent of men in the study were misdiagnosed. The report is one more in a growing number that show doctors treat men and women differently. The study of a common type of arrythmia was made public last week at the annual meeting of the North American Society of Pacing and Electrophysiology in New Orleans.

A woman experiencing a bad bout of PMS-related anxiety may feel remarkably similar to a drug or alcohol addict quitting cold turkey. Neurologist Sheryl Smith of Allegheny University of the Health Sciences found that, in rats, hormonal shifts associated with PMS caused brain changes similar to those associated with withdrawal. Her findings are published in today's issue of the journal Nature. Scientists had for some time associated premenstrual syndrome with a monthly drop in the hormone progesterone, but Smith found a more complicated explanation for anxiety in the days around menstruation.

These are tough times for the born worriers among us, not to mention the typically calm. Terrorism alerts, sniper shootings, bombings, calls for war, anthrax and other biological threats - it's a wonder that anyone can get to sleep at night. Since 9/11, worry and anxiety have become a daily part of all of our lives. Unfortunately, it is affecting children as well, at a time when they should be carefree and feeling secure. To help individuals, families and professional counselors deal with anxiety, the Samost Jewish Family and Children's Service of Southern New Jersey and the Katz Jewish Community Center will cosponsor their fourth annual community conference Nov. 24 at the center, 1301 Springdale Rd., Cherry Hill.

Dante Cunningham is blessed with a calm demeanor. But the Villanova basketball player admits that he's been a little anxious of late. Something about the uncertainty of where, or if, he'll be drafted in tonight's NBA draft will do that. "[The] last night, you are tossing and turning" in bed, Cunningham said yesterday. "You can't go to a team and tell them, 'Pick me here.' " Several mock drafts have the 6-foot-8, 230-pound forward going in the second round. DraftExpress.

Scott Stossel, editor of the Atlantic magazine, is most terrified of vomiting. Though he hasn't spewed in more than 35 years, his fear of the act is extreme. A successful writer and married father of two, he carries airsickness bags wherever he goes and obsessively tracks stomach-virus outbreaks in fear of having to throw up. Emetophobia, or the fear of vomiting, may be Stossel's most extreme and long-standing worry. But he also becomes sweaty and squeamish at the thought of public speaking (glossophobia)

Because of the recession, eight million unemployed adults across the country experience anxiety, fear and frustration almost daily. The same signs of stress are appearing in children living in the economically depressed Bristol Township section of Bucks County, where many parents have lost jobs since the recent division closings at USX Fairless Hills. "The steel mill was a major employer (in this area)," said Samuel Savitz, guidance department chairman at Neil A. Armstrong Junior High School in Bristol.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Opponents would see J.P. Arencibia and assume he was in the minor leagues on a rehab assignment. Umpires would ask the former major-leaguer why he was toiling in triple A. Arencibia played four seasons in the majors before he was dropped to the minors in May 2014. His performance started to spiral because of the anxiety from the pressure Arencibia applied to himself. The demotion, he said, caused him to "strip down" his career. He was trying to prove too much.

Can it be that the very systems we employ to make us feel more secure also make us feel insecure and anxious? Mary Ann Laydon thinks so. Dr. Laydon is director of education at the University of Pennsylvania's Center for Cognitive Therapy. "Living in a fortress carries a psychological price," Laydon says. "We are seeing many more people with anxiety problems today than in the past. " There is no doubt that Americans are scared. An article in the current issues of New Choices, a magazine targeted to retirees, contends anxiety about crime even pervades communities that have none at all. It describes the tiny town of Dime Box, Texas, where church suppers and porch swings are the big excitements.

Near the beginning of Living With High Blood Pressure (59 minutes, $34.95), we meet a succession of people who have had to alter their lives to accommodate the limitations imposed by hypertension. As these people recall the surprise and disbelief upon learning they had the disease, the viewer can catch a glimpse of that initial anxiety. It's an anxiety that only knowledge can lessen, and this well-produced videotape from Creative Street in Indianapolis is a step in that direction.

With polls suggesting he's in a two-man race for Southeastern Pennsylvania, Ohio Gov. John Kasich pressed Thursday to highlight the contrast - even if he wouldn't name his rival. Speaking to a crowd in Delaware County, Kasich continued his pitch that he's the most experienced, civil, if not rational choice for Republicans in Tuesday's presidential primary. "This is extremely boring, because I'm not yelling at anybody or calling somebody a name," he told a few hundred supporters who filled - but didn't pack - the gymnasium at Penn State's Brandywine campus.

By Sally Friedman I was so scared. I was up long before dawn, and breakfast was out of the question. I had changed clothes three times. Nothing seemed to look right. And just for spite, even my hair was uncooperative. It was the first day of school, and I was a wreck. The thing is, I was the teacher. While it was all decades ago, every September, I remember - and am humbled by - that trial by fire. I was 21 years old, a newly minted graduate of the University of Pennsylvania's School of Education, a new bride, and absolutely terrified about what was ahead.

DEAR ABBY: Clearly, America is in a state of turmoil. I am horrified and ashamed of the senseless death occurring daily. I deal with anxiety, particularly regarding fear of death. As a result, the only thing I've found that I can do to cope with current events is to scan headlines, and ask my understanding husband for a synopsis of events that doesn't include major triggers. However, I feel serious guilt that I may not be fully educating myself on recent events. Am I wrong to prioritize my mental well-being over the gravity of our country's current situation?

Question: A good friend and I had strong feelings for each other, but I (foolishly) would not break up my long-term relationship for him. He ended up engaged to someone else, and when my relationship ended, my biggest regret was missing my chance with the friend. His engagement has now been called off. He has reached out, and we've gone out a few times, which has been wonderful. However, he still seems pretty bitter about the fiancée's calling things off, and I suspect he wants to sow his wild oats a bit. Any recommendations on how to give him his space without missing my chance again?

When Anthony Bonetti feels anxious and has trouble falling asleep, the 10-year-old checks in with his Smiling Mind app. The calming voice instructs him to close his eyes and focus on his breathing, taking 10 slow breaths while feeling his belly rise and fall. In just a few minutes, the fourth grader feels sleepy and relaxed. "He gets worked up easily, and this unwinds him from the day," said his mom, Claire. At first skeptical of adding more electronics to her son's life - "they create stimulation" - she downloaded the app to her phone about a year ago so they could use it together.

DEAR ABBY: I'm a 51-year-old gay male. I have a sweet, dear friend I'll call "Samantha" who is slightly older. The problem is, she wants more than friendship. She insists on spending time with me and calls me daily. She hugs me repeatedly when she goes to leave, and kisses my neck or cheek - whichever she can get to. Samantha has touched me in a way that makes me uncomfortable. She places herself so her body touches my hand or arm. When she does, I quickly remove it. She says I remind her of her brother, but I'm not feeling a sibling relationship here.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: In two weeks, I'll be moving with my 4-year-old daughter. It's just across town, but my kiddo is soooo attached to our current home, and I'm worried about how to help her adjust to the new place. I'm planning on painting and decorating her room the same way it is now so it'll feel familiar when she gets there, but at the same time, maybe she'd like it better if she got to pick new things? But new things and transitions are hard for her. Super-awesome kid with really, really big emotions.

DEAR ABBY: I'm a 29-year-old self-made millionaire who has spent the last decade saving and investing my middle-class income. I grew up dirt poor, so at 18, I left home with $5, went straight to work, and never looked back. Recently, I've realized that I struggle to make friends for fear they'll find out about my financial situation. Those who know only want to talk about money, or they treat me differently. Most of my peers are broke, and it makes me feel guilty. Those with high incomes blow their money on fancy dinners and luxury vehicles.

Question: My husband just took the bar exam a few weeks ago. He is working now as a clerk and waiting for results. He put himself through part-time law school, and he is really dedicated to his career, which is great. I've supported him since the beginning. I knew that when he was studying for the bar, I would be taking up most of the house and child care, and that was fine. What I didn't expect was to be such an emotional support for him. I didn't say anything when he was studying because I wanted him to succeed and there was an end date in sight.

DEAR ABBY: I'm having trouble with my daily life. I have become more reserved and rarely even look at people. All I do is my schoolwork. I have lost trust in quite a few people over the years, including most of my family members. My parents have taught me to trust almost no one and to always be afraid of strangers. I recently started high school, and I have talked with only two or three people at the most. I have really bad social anxiety, and I'm treated different from my siblings. I'm feeling like my whole life is just a lie and that I'm nothing.
