Anxiety - What is it, when is it useful, when is it not?

The title of this post is the discussion topic for the Nov. 6 Austin Rainbow Forum, a monthly discussion group of LGBT seniors that first met in Austin Tx in Jan. 2018. I am using this post to pass on links to some optional background reading:
Martin Seligman and learned helplessness versus helpfulness
Eustress - beneficial stress
Bruce McEwen on good and bad stress
Robert Sapolsky on chronic stress
