    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.

    Thanks Andy, this is so true. Anxiety, pain etc are just signals to be more in tune with ourselves.
