Hi, just a quick intro. I'm new here. I've been living with anxiety since elementary. I'm now 39 years old with a pretty good handle on it. Still, every now and then the beast rears it's ugly head and I spiral into deep thoughts of fear, negativity and despair. It is at these moments that I wonder how I am going to cope with work, family and friends when I can't really control my feelings at all. This is a really really scary thought.
