I guess there are many forms of anxiety. Mine is a hollow feeling in my chest which feels like i got no soul. Its not the worst type but it is very draining and it makes me smoke alot.
Anyone else feel this, or any other type?

It was described just the other night on tv as, imagine your rocking on a four legged chair then you realise for a second you’ve gone too far and will crack your head. Now hold that fear you have for an hour or so and that’s the fear/dread they feel . Me it would be like telling me to go stand in a pit of snakes for an hour and don’t worry they won’t bite. I can’t explain the reason why I have fear stepping out of the house of going shopping I just know it really hurts and terrifies me

A constant anticipation or expectation that something is going to go wrong - but it never does, so you just remain anticipated.
