I've been struggling with anxiety for as long as I can remember, and it feels like it completely takes over my life. I’ve tried different therapies, medications, and even meditation, but it’s still such a powerful force that I can’t seem to shake. I keep wondering why anxiety is so intense and why it has such a hold on me.
It’s not just the feeling of worry or nervousness that comes with anxiety, it’s the physical symptoms like palpitations, sweating, and trembling. It’s like my body is trying to protect me from something that isn’t even there. It’s so frustrating because I know there’s nothing to be afraid of, but my body just won’t listen.
I’ve heard some theories about why anxiety is so powerful, like it being a survival mechanism for our ancestors, but I’m not sure if that’s the whole story. Does anyone have any ideas or personal experiences with anxiety that could shed some light on why it’s such a difficult thing to deal with? I would really appreciate any insights or advice. Thank you.
