There’s a difference between anxiety that’s connected to a particular situation in life, and long term manic anxiety. In the case of the latter, it is not exactly caused by one or a group of conditions, but a state of consciousness or mindset that affects the whole system, feeding on life energy, and using whatever worrying situation is available to sustain that field of extreme anxiety.
A lot of people don’t even know this is happening to them, Ed, because this is one deceptive energy field. It can often disguise itself as an over caring nature, general depression because of an unhealthy lifestyle or sleep deprivation. You get the picture… It can go unnoticed beneath all these conditions.
