22. Diagnosed with GAD and OCD when I was 12. Thought I'd grown out of it until very recently.

23.

I worry too much. I'm an overthinker and a perfectionist. I lost the girl I loved back in 2010 and 2011, and ever since she's moved on and had a child with her fiance. That destroyed me, and moving on from that has been a pain.

I believe the worrying was inherited. My mom is a worrier, and my dad was a worrier. It's as if I'm a 'worrier on steroids'.

"What can go wrong, will go wrong" -- it's almost as if that's my mantra given some of the events in my life that's happened.

I'm 23 now, but I have had anxiety since childhood. The psychologist and psychiatrist have determined it is entirely genetic in my case. On my mother and my father's sides of the family there are have each been two suicides within the last 3 generations and my father and two brothers have all been diagnosed with depression and anxiety. One of my brothers has bipolar disorder, and I have it so mildly that I'm usually okay without mood stabilizers. :)

I'm 26, and at the moment I feel my anxiety is at it's worst. Been suffering from it for as long as I can remember though.

I'm 26. And this was an interesting poll. I figured mostly everyone on here would be in my age bracket. This seems to be the time where people suffer the most in their lives. A lot of life changes are going on. And there's a lot of pressures. Families, kids, relationships, school, jobs.. etc.

51 can't believe I'm still walking earth.  Anxiety and ocd, addictions bipolar from as far back as I can remember a child.  I still feel that child inside every waking moment, there is some element of not growing up, something went wrong, either I was born with it all, or it was environmental.  Still alive and kicking, I wished I wasn't doing as much screaming in the past week.  Hugs all.

I'm 44.  I've been dealing with serious anxiety issues, concerning my health mostly, for about the past decade.  My father was a worrier, so I suppose it comes naturally for me!  Around the age of 11 or so I started having some early OCD tendencies.  Then in my early 30s OCD began to really disrupt my life.  Currently, I am going through a terrible period of nearly constant anxiety about my health.

I'm 23 but I have had social anxiety since around 10, it's gotten worse with age. My doctor told my mom it was a phase, here I am 14 years later.

Will soon turn 64, and have had the affliction for 40 years now.

Thanks to my "wonderful" family, I just got over yet another major crisis which I solved single-handedly, no thanks to them.

I won't tell my sordid tales at this time, but they were gawdawful to have gone through.
