Sometimes anxiety / GAD is not clearly evident especially from the perspective of the person experiencing it . . .sometimes we delay in asking about it because we don't want to admit to ourselves that perhaps we are experiencing it . . .for me, anxiety built up bit by bit by episodes that, quite frankly, I blew off once they had passed . . . so, your HA might be a signal to you that you might need some professional intervention to prevent it from becoming entrenched in your thought processes . . . so I would suggest that you think about getting a physical to rule out any physical issues for your adrenaline (for example: an overactive thyroid --- yep, I know, that thyroid issues are more commonly related to women but I have two male friends who both have an overactive thyroid that is now easily controlled with meds) and then, unless you have already done so, begin working with a trained counselor (one who is specifically trained and has experience in guiding folks with anxiety and health anxiety) so that you can deal with it before it develops any further . . .
By the way, no need to apologize for a posting (well, unless it is really rude) . . . we all express ourselves in different ways and sometimes anxiety is difficulty to put into words as there is no standard packaging . . .what is important is that you come and share your experiences with us so we can all learn from each other . . .so thanks for doing that and do let us know how you are progressing, okay? Take care, kc
