I'm curious how anxiety ( specifically GAD) affects people in their daily lives. Ever since I became more open with mine I find so many people telling me they have terrible anxiety.. then next week I see on facebook they are on a flight to vegas... I know everyone has different forms and ranges of anxiety but when I see people claiming they have this illness and out doing these things I almost find myself jealous. I may have a more severe case but im not currently medicated and I seen to get on with my daily routine ok. Ever since I was diagnosed about 5 years ago I progressively got better then worse. I can no longer travel, I certainly wouldn't get on a plane, don't like social events ( although haven't been diagnosed with social anxiety) this includes resteraunts and movie theatres. I certainly don't drink caffeine or alcohol. Sugar really affects me. I don't like to stay over night anywhere but home. I don't even like driving in other peoples vehichles.. as you can see its really turned my life upside down especially for only being 27 years old. How has your anxiety affected YOUR life?
