I’ve dealt with moderate Generalized Anxiety Disorder (Or GAD) since my second year of college. But if I really think about it, I’ve probably unknowingly struggled with it most of my life. For the most part I keep it under control. The Huffington Post posted a article by Emma Gray, 15 Things Anyone Who Loves A Woman With Anxiety Should Know, that painted a wonderful picture of the condition. Its an amazing look at what goes into having someone in your life who has serious problems with anxiety. Besides what people see on television and movies, most people don’t know what anxiety is really like for people who suffer from it on a regular basis. The thing I really liked about the article is it didn’t make anxiety this huge cancer that only results in negatives. Grey talked about while it is hard it can result in productivity and can make anxiety suffers great to have on your side when its crunch time. If you suffer from anxiety or know someone who does you should really check out this article.
