I am putting this on a seperate thread because it isn't personal to me but rather a general wondering about
the condition of anxiety.
Do you think that it is possible to allow anxiety to become a way of life? I am not judging anyone, I am not criticizing anyone nor am I belittling what any of us have gone through or continue to go through. I am wondering if perhaps one can get into the habit of being anxious and in that habit possibly miss opportunities to heal what is causing it in the first place. My anxiety is emotionally based and dealing with those issues that bring the anxiety about is putting me in control of it. When it starts, I can now actually turn it off with a different sort of thinking and "knowing". Can anxiety be organically based so that one does not really have control over it or is anxiety always emotionally based? I am asking these questions because I don't know the answers and am wondering.
