Whenever I have an anxiety episode, I wonder if it will ever go away. I have always approached my anxiety as being caused for something external, but during my last episode I kinda realised I actually had anxiety since very very young.
I have always been able to keep a job and relatively easy and healthy relationships. But now it is the first time I am approaching my anxiety as Generalised Anxiety. Accepting that it is something that has always been there, bringing negativity, doubt and - sometimes - crippling thoughts and feelings.
I have always resisted using medication because of the side-effects, withdraws. Also, because I don't think I need it, since I made it till now without them ( I am 35).
I am starting CBT again, different professional... different approach. My question is, does it ever get better? Will I one day not need CBT and leave happy and content with with life....
