a: Anxiety disorder ~
b: having an over-sensitive alarm system
What: "In a way, having an anxiety disorder is like having an over-sensitive alarm system. The alarm goes off, i.e. anxiety is triggered even though there is no real danger. People with an anxiety disorder tend to react to stressful situations with anxiety, even though there is no real danger."
