Levels of Anxiety

I was diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder when I was 18.  I believe very strongly that I have it.  But there are days when I almost feel normal.  What is it like for you?

Generalized anxiety disorder for me is the same, except sometimes I feel like I'm dying when I wake up, and I get afraid over the smallest things.... I would like to feel normal..

Exactly the same! I was diagnosed a couple of years ago and have cbt regularly. My anxiety has reared its head recently as it's the summer holidays for me and I miss being at work and being busy. I'm also starting my PGCE in September so am anxious about that. But I know that in a few weeks I'll be fine again! I always try to tell myself that although I have anxiety, I am still normal and it doesn't define me.

This is the biggest issue with Anxiety Disorder, it often looks everything is okay, but the very next moment you might feel the world is coming to an end, so it’s really tough to handle, but I would say just stay strong and you will overcome this.
