Here are the different type of anxiety.

Panic Disorder - Unpredictable attacks of anxiety that are accompanied by physiological manifestations.

Agoraphobia - An abnormal fear of being helpless in an embarrassing or inescapable situation that is characterized especially by the avoidance of open or public places.

Specific Phobias - Persistent fear of objects or situations. When these situations or objects appear, they can produce immediate and severe symptoms of anxiety.

Social Anxiety Disorder - A persistent irrational fear of situations in which the person may be closely watched and judged by others, as in public speaking, eating, or using public facilities.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) - Post-traumatic stress disorder is a psychiatric illness that can occur following a traumatic event, in which there is the threat of injury or death to you or someone else.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) - The person suffering from OCD uses ritualistic and repeated behaviors to rid themselves of obsessive thoughts and anxieties.

Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)  - This a common condition. The disorder is characterized by excessive anxiety and worry that is out of proportion to the impact of the event or circumstance that is the focus of the worry. Persons with GAD may eventually experience other mental disorders, such as panic disorder or major depressive disorder.

If you had a bad run of L.S.D you might be careful with that maybe you are prone to psychosis. I suggest you don't take L.S.D or hallucinogen drugs anymore. Some people are more prone to psychosis than other people and if you are wondering then maybe it's a sign you might have a psychosis which can ruin the rest of your life. Be aware.
