It's horrible especially when your spouse doesn't understand it

Quoting IamMex11: Yes. It is.

I am so grateful mine does. But I can tell you I had someone cast judgment on me because they said I was just overreacting to situations then they lost a loved one and started suffering from it themselves. They have since apologized but I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy

Deep breathing is my friend. Yesterday I was in a situation which regularly would have caused high anxiety yet I didn't even have a splinter of it!

I did for about three months a year ago but now I just breath through. Also I recognize my triggers. Some are less obvious than others. For example I may start to feel anxious and realize oops I haven't eaten yet yes definitely not eating right brings on anxiety

This.

Recognize what is happening and stay ahead of it. Mine is lack of sleep or putting something off that I know I wanted to get done. Anxiety is also tied into depression. A certain amount of the condition cannot be controlled.
