Hi everyone! So I have had pretty bad anxiety/depression for years now. I have noticed through out my life, that because I have always been so focused on the anxiety 24/7, and how to fix it or make myself feel better, that I am not quite as worldly/factual as other people. I find that this makes it very difficult to just normally converse with new people in my life, because I feel like the topic I know the most about is anxiety. Obviously that is not the only thing I am capable of talking about, but I just feel so behind on normal topics that other people interpret and remember so well. I was just curious if anyone else experiences this? I am 23 years old, and this is just a huge struggle for me right now. I would just like to be normal for once and be able to focus and learn like so many other people are able to do! I am tired of always being so focused on the anxiety or in an anxious state. And I have tried medications, etc, so I do know how to help myself. But I feel like with anxiety, it is semi genetic, so even when the anxiety is under control, we will still be semi anxious/over aware people. I guess I mainly just would appreciate reassurance that I am not the only one who feels this way. Thank you in advance!!
