Hi there.

I'm Erika and I have been struggling with anxiety for my entire life, but was diagnosed when I was 5.

Basicly it is a constant fear of something that prevents you from doing what you want or need to do. Afraid of people,, what they are thinking of you, have a negative self-image, no confidence, etc....

There are several sub-catagories of Anxiety. The main ones are:
Social Anxiety Disorder
Obsessive complusive disorder
Post traumatic stress disorder
Panic attacks
Generalized anxiety disorder

Here is a link that you may find usefull http://www.medicinenet.com/anxiety/article.htm

This discusses the generalized anxiety. Usually what happens a person is first diagonosed with this then as time goes on it gets further refined. That is what happend to me.

I hope this helps. There are many people here who can help. Please pm me if you like.
