GREENSBORO, N.C. — Mental health experts say waiting for election results over the course of days is causing some people to experience anxiety. 

Jaren Doby, a therapist with Novant Health, says anxiety can manifest mentally and/or physically.

"It can also cause issues with focus and concentration, irritability or agitation. It can even cause a sleep disturbance," Doby says.

His advice is to get some exercise, step back, and take a break if the anxiety gets to be too much.

One voter said he is telling people to keep the faith. 

"You have to trust that we will count every single vote, count every single ballot, and that we will have the results at some point," Noah Ambrose says.

Doby stressed the importance of patience and said it is truly a virtue.
