Well I've had an anxiety disorder for about four years now and I'm usually concerned with health related stuff, but this has also been bugging me a lot lately. It seems that almost EVERYTIME I have something exciting going on in my life, I automatically go from feeling happy to high anxiety. Things that in the past would bring me joy now just cause me to feel sick to my stomach or just very on edge.. Kind of like my default emotion is now always anxiety or fear.
We are adopting a dog (finally after looking for months!) and at first I was so happy about it. Today they are bringing the dog to our house and my whole family is so excited.. But I'm here wide awake at 4 am with a churning stomach and feeling like I can't take in a deep breath. This happens when I'm going to visit with a friend I haven't seen in a while, or when I hear really good news about various things. Anyone feel like they are stuck feeling only one emotion no matter what???
