I have severe GAD, am on disability and don't know what effect my anxiety will have on me on any given day. I used to love to cook. Now I make cereal or frozen pizza for meals that my wife doesn't provide. There are days I can barely walk or am completely befuddled and can't make a simple decision and where taking my daily shower is a major project. But it could be worse. I could have one of the many diseases that those with health anxiety obsess about. Then, my physical anxiety symptoms could be real and I might then be thankful that I could even feed myself. Yes, we all have anxiety, a terrible disease that manifests itself differently in each of us. Every now and then, in the midst of our suffering, it might be a good idea to realize that things could actually be worse for us.
