I was gonna say "challenging" but some days when you're in control and you can manage to quiet your thoughts you do indeed feel empowered. I say "empowered" because people with anxiety are still able to live "normal" lives (as society would phrase it). They can have relationships, kids, pretty much anything they desire as much as the next person only you have to fight for it harder. That challenge in every day makes you strong. On the days that you feel strong does anyone feel empowered too?
