Anxiety Question

Posted , 5 users are following.

I'm somewhat new to the whole anxiety world. When people have anxiety does it affect them when the anxiety hits and then they feel back to normal when the anxiety lowers or goes away? Or are people permanently not feeling themselves physically?

      Yes you feel Normal.in every way. But it can come back It feels bit like a split personality as it changes you when your going through anxious spell. You just got to try control it so it can't control you. But yes you do have normal time

      I would recommend learning to accept that we have anxiety.  Fighting anxiety makes it worse.  Meditation teaches us to have feelings and thought, acknowledge that we have them, and learning to accept them.  Mindfullness can have some of the same.

    hello

    ​anxiety effects in different ways, however what I will say which to some may sound off key,if everyone has a bout of anxiety, then  I'm glad I have experienced anxiety, it was awe full and horrendous for almost 10 months, but while I had it I researched it and got an understanding of it and learned how to try and control it, so when it flares up I'm ready for it, for those experiencing it for the first time then I prey for you all,but you will get  thou it.

    Eventually you go back to normal yes but it can come back and go and come back again!! I've had it twice in 4 years.. this one is debilitating! What are your symptoms?

    Everyone is different. It depends on what disorders you have. Gad is always there. You get a new normal. I have dealt with  this about 27 years and find it waxes and wanes. It could be terrible few weeks then its gone for months. With me ailments set it off. I have some issues that arent good and at times get really scared. If i feel good im good and i feel normal at those times. I do think back to when i was young and would happily drift off to sleep and wake up all refreshed and happy at times. I miss that so much.
