I'm only 19 & my anxiety has been at an all time high lately & it's honestly the first time in my life I've ever experienced anxiety.

Im not sure how to reply to this so here goes, i dont think that age has a major thing to do with it sometimes, like anxiousguy was saying in one of his posts, there is a point in your life you realize your own morality. That in itself is very nervewrecking.

I am 30 (about to turn 31) and I have experienced my symptoms (including clinical depression) for about 6-7 years. It all began (especially the panic attacks) when I was rejected from grad school.

Looking back I always knew I had an anxious temperament as a child but it was never this debilitating.

31. Point of interest, I read the average age of onset of GAD is 31, so yeah right on target there  ::)
I've been a shy person all my life, a "worrier"  for a good ten years, and I'd say my symptoms turned clinical about four months ago.

I am brand new here, and took the age poll, and find it fascinating how many of us fall into the 22-32 year age from ( I am 31 years old).  I wonder if there is some deep medical significance to this?

I'm 27 looks like my age bracket contains the most anxious people. Wonder why that is?

I'm new on here and I'm 41. I'm not exactly sure how old I was when my anxiety set it in. Probably around 11 or so? It seems like I've suffered with it forever. It's been the worst the last 8 years or so. I almost had a nervous breakdown when I was 33.

I'm in the same age group too (25). Maybe it has something to do with people our age being more interested in forums like this one?

I'm 20, and I think a lot of my anxiety comes from dealing with my junior year at university, but a lot of it stems from unresolved psychological issues i've been sweeping under the rug for ages. My university offers free counseling sessions, so I decided one day to see why I was feeling so terrible. Lo and behold! Here I am, about 6 months later.

I think a lot of the reason a lot of people are significantly older when they get diagnosed with GAD is because of the stigma against mental health disorders. I still have roommates tell me, "You're freaking out for no reason. We're all stressed." And many people do believe that they are just "stressed." But when they grow into adulthood and still feel the same way, while nobody else seems to, they notice something's wrong. Or, they finally have the stability and autonomy to explore the options themselves, rather than having to go through a higher-up such as a parent or university health system.
