What is Anxiety? I have seen “Anxiety” mentioned in many post in the past, so I asked myself what my current beliefs are: It is my friend there to protect me, an indicator to act or think differently. It is a mere chemical blip in my brain, harmless. Everyone has it in some form. I like to think of Fear as being really dangerous to my well being and Anxiety as the state of worry about my well being. A Fearful event can end, Anxiety seems ongoing. Anxiety is a multi-billion dollar Industry. Until 3 years ago I used to believe Anxiety was a moral weakness and silly, 3 years ago I joined a TMS forum. I have only suffered from serious Anxiety a few times, and find comfort from the above. Be at ease with your Anxiety, good luck.
