Many people suffer from Anxiety.  I am one of them.  I have suffered with it since my twenties.  As I got older, I started having it more often.  After my mother passed away when I was 24 is when it started occurring more often.  Stress from work, finances, divorce and being a single parent certainly do not help.  For the most part I have it under control and I don’t suffer from it every day.  At times it will come in waves and I will have it several days in a row and then won’t have it for a while.  Occasionally it will hit me like a ton of bricks out of nowhere, mostly at night.  My chest will hurt and I feel like I cannot take a deep breath.  Other times, it is situational.  Anxiety takes a toll on your body and your mind.  It’s very hard for people who have never experienced anxiety to understand what it feels like.  It’s definitely not pleasant!
