Long term effects of anxiety
Hello, I'm anxious person. After years of dealing with these symptoms, enough doctors telling me that it is anxiety, and the support of this board I'm now finally convinced. The drugs have helped me feel about 50% better and I'm greatful for that but I've come to terms with likelihood that I will be suffering from this, to some extent, for the rest of my life. I remember 4 months ago, when things were at their worst, I didn't think I was going to live much past my 20's. Now I'm begining to experience recovery and my attitude has changed. But what are the long term effects of our condition? Are we more likely to have heart failure in our 60's then if we symptom free? What types of illness, organ failure, life expectancy does anxiety impose on us?
