I see anxiety as the main problem for me too. Seems like depression or other things like obsessive thinking come around for me on the heels of too much anxiety. Then there are two or more things to deal with. It can be exhausting.

Seems to me anxiety happens more when you don't feel safe and secure. When you feel uncertain about things, and maybe have a sense of dread, which could be that "living in the future" part. You may be thinking there is some trouble coming your way, or if things aren't good today, who's to say they will be any better tomorrow or next year?

Definitely. With anxiety you're always worrying about what MIGHT happen, on top of dealing with the here and now.
