Neuroses

This is a general term applied to a variety of mild disorders or conditions that are characterized by anxiety and phobias that don't involve any altered senses of reality and don't effect the entire personality. When a person is neurotic, they don't have any breaks from reality, hallucinations, etc., but they do experience periods of clinical anxiety and/or phobias.
