I live with what can be best described as a constant anxiety. Not really many major panic attacks anymore but just always kinda uneasy. I can manage it most days and keep it to a dull roar. But there are always some intrusive thoughts lurking. One of the thoughts I deal with are when I am actually feeling free from my anxiety. The absence itself almost gives me anxiety. Why worry when nothing is actully happening? I have no idea. The point where i dont have a little chest tightness or dizziness or the ability to actually focus, the lack of a problem can become its own problem. The worry about what comes next or why do I actually feel so good. Maybe it was the exhaustion from working so much giving me something else to focus on, maybe the workout I got in yesterday after months of being gone... who knows. I have enjoyed my brief moment of clarity and feeling free after fighting off most negative thoughts. Just have to learn how to accept I can every now and then feel completely normal without sabotaging it back into a anxious state. Not sure if any one else deals with this at all?
