Yes it is possible to live with anxiety, does it ever go away completely? I would have to say no in my case but each person is different.
Many people live with low level anxiety all of their lives. I am one of those and when stressed my anxiety rises.
One of the best therapies for anxiety is CBT. Cognitive-behavioral therapy is based on the idea that our thoughtscause our feelings and behaviors, not external things, like people, situations, and events. The benefit of this fact is that we can change the way we think to feel / act better even if the situation does not change.
If we are serious about overcoming an anxiety disorder, we need to approach anxiety from every positive angle and perspective that we have available to us.
Here is the link to the free online CBT program that many member of HW have used.

It's really important for myself to be able to stay in the moment. I have found that by avoiding things like dwelling on past or worrying about the future I am usually able to get done what needs to get done when it needs to get done.Remember we are here to help you and we do not judge. We only support. Each of us knows where your coming from and what your going through. We all have anxiety.
May you have peace within,
