A long road for me, just had my 50th birthday in November. To be
More specific about my condition, I have been diagnosed with general anxiety disorder, plus other issues ill deal with later. However it does make me feel better texting out my feelings. Amazing how the nervousness goes away for that frame in time:) I wont write too much more except to say that my nerves for some reason, have gotten incredibly sensitive
As of late. Not sure what the problem is, it could be a meds issue, which I'm working on.....but I find myself saying I'm scared all the time. When there are no threats present..
Does anybody deal with similar issues?

Welcome. I have fear of dying. Mainly from a heart attack. It gives me panic attacks which in turn give me more anxiety about a heart attack. It is a very viscous cycle.

Welcome. I've suffered from GAD for 50 years so I've definitely a clue about what you're dealing with. GAD makes me fear and avoid many, many things and situations where there is no reason to fear. Even knowing how ridiculous most of those fears are, I physically get very anxious by them. Again, welcome.

Hey. Any work issues? I have a new boss who is a horrible control freak and that has been making me feel like I'm jumping out of my skin sometimes.
