When stressful life events occur in a person’s life there is typically an adjustment period which might last up to a few months. Those who have an adjustment disorder, however, may find it more difficult to adjust to stressful situations. The stress may trigger them into feeling anxious or depressed and may lead to negative emotional or behavioral reactions, such as:
- Frequent crying.
- Constant worrying.
- Lack of appetite.
- Difficulty functioning in daily activities.
