A small word which can describe a large set of emotions, which usually can be worry, worried, frightened, scared, paranoid, feeling persecuted right up to schizophrenia/paranoid schitzophrenia.

Anxiety, within reason, is just a part of life; everybody experiences at some point. It is connected to the fight or flight syndrome that we, as have all animals, have deep within us, enabling us to survive.

It can become a problem when anxiety takes over most of your feelings and therefore, your life. There are many medical definitions of this state of being, such as generalised anxiety disorder, non-specific anxiety disorder, persecution complex and many more. If necessarry, there are medications/drugs available to help alleviate the symptoms and sometimes tackle the cause of these anxiety states.

If a diagnosis does not include one of the main mental illnesses, then it's often likely people will be prescribed one brand from a group of benzodiazepine drugs: The most well known of these is probably Valium. These drugs are addictive, can cause nasty side effects and long term side effects and, if used for too long can actually make the original problem worse, with paradoxical effects. The withdrawal from this drug can result in some of the worst withdrawal symptoms known, and can last for years.

If prescribed a {benzodiazepine] it should be for no longer than a two week period What has become known as talking cures are a safer, cheaper alternative and can actually do something to help the original problem, rather than just masking it.

In some cases, such as paranoid schitzophrenia drugs, usually anti psychotics, can be of great help and allow the sufferer to live a far more 'normal' life.

Anxiety is just a state of mind, and, even when having a panic attack and it feels as if you may die, emotions are not generally known to kill you.
My palms felt sweaty and I was sure I was going red in the face, as I stood in the line for the bus. I was begining to feel more and more anxious and the more I thought about it, the worse it got. Eventually, the anxiety took control of me and I started to panic. I left the bus stop, ran home and didn't attend the job interview.

It is, indeed, yet another euphemism for masturbation.

As the description suggests, it generally refers to male masturbation.
I spent half the day, at work, in a cubicle in the toilets; fantasizing about rough sex with my boss, while having one off the wrist. Eventually I had to move to another cubicle when the toilet roll ran out.

When, usualy a joke or another comment (but could also apply to a film or play etc), is either not appreciated, said when not appropriate or just plain not funny and get's either a cold response or no response at all. Similar to a lead balloon. It can be described as "Going down like a cup of cold sick".
When George told his joke, about The Englishman, the Irishman and the Scotsman, in which the Irishman appears stupid, at an Irish social club, it went down like a cup of cold sick.

I think you all know what bad spelling is.

It is a thing you should try not to do.

It is especially important if you are doing something like adding a definition to urban dictionary, posting on a forum or adding to wikipedia etc., and would like your definition, or post, to be taken seriously and to avoid all your hard work being ruined and losing credibility.

I am not including any spelling differences that exist between the UK and the US and am only referring to 'established' words rather than urban, street, text or forum and IM languages.

You do not have to be a good speller. You can always have dictionary.com open in another window, or just type the word (however you think it's spelled) into google, and if it's spelled incorrectly, google will offer alternatives, and you can just cut n paste!
The definition, about the drug, seemed to make sense and I was begining to think that the person who had posted it was correct, until I spotted they had spelled 'heroine' instead of 'heroin'.

The bad spelling started me doubting the knowledge and intelligence of the person posting the definition and, therefore, the definition itself.
