With enough dedication and if you seek support soon enough you can minimise your symptoms and lead a relatively average life.

I cannot answer that for you, that is entirely up to you. I believe you are strong. I don't think it is entirely about the question: "Will my anxiety go away?" and I understand that with this disorder it can be very difficult but "Can I fight my anxiety?" I know you can do it, I believe in you.

Sure it will. You just need the right way to approach it. Try with self-help books, and then maybe see a professional if it still remains.

Yes, once you can get to the root source of your anxieties, be it fear of judgement, lack of experience or any other reason; you can help overcome these sources or at least reduce your anxiety from them which will in time help you overcome it altogether.

Anxiety is "a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease about something with an uncertain outcome", To effectively deal with that worry and unease, we can do various things, from changing our automatic thoughts process which may be teaching us irrational worris, to simply accepting a situation. So simply, with the right treatment, anxiety can be effectively dealt with, but perhaps not cured. A lot of people always have signs of anxiety, no matter what treatment they have, but learning to cope with and deal with worries is incredible, because it can help you stop anxiety from interfering in day to day life.

Yes. It can. You just need more coping mechanisms. Mindfulness always worked brilliantly for me. There are plenty of activities an techniques you can use that can help reduce your anxiety levels and help you think rationally. Take a look :') http://bemindful.co.uk/

I can't promise you that your anxiety is going to go away, but with medication miracles are possible.

It can. It takes a lot of work on your end, but it definitely can. You can work through it over time, tackling it bit by bit, and you'll get there.

Even though their is no cure. Studies have shown with the right treatment it is manageable. Just have to find what works best for you.

Short answer: Maybe. It all depends on how you approach your anxiety. If you just try to avoid situations that make you anxious you won't get used to those situations which might cause even more anxiety. But on the other hand if you try to beat your anxiety by experiencing that exact situation making you anxious you will learn how to handle it and you might beat anxiety.

Anxiety is something that you need to work at. I'm not going to say it's something to get rid of, but there are a number of different techniques and exercises you can practice actively in your every day life to make things seem more approachable and possible. For example, deep breathing, meditation, yoga, reading, colouring, anything that calms you.

Maybe. Anxiety is a normal thing, everyone has anxiety. The key is to control your anxiety level. Always focus on the positive. If you feel like your anxiety level is high, take a moment and breathe, close your eyes and just continue to breathe. Once you feel relaxed, continue on with what you were doing. All things will be accomplished no matter how difficult things may be.

It will decrease someday, even if it doesn't disappear. Therapy and medication can help. Mine did decrease.

I think "go away" is a loose term. People say that some anxiety is good for you, and I don't think anyone will ever be without any aspect of anxiety. However, it IS a real possibility that your anxiety will become less severe, and/or that you will find ways to cope or deal with the anxiety, therefore making it less of a burden on your life. It might take a lot of time and effort and dedication, but I believe in you! I wish you the best!

No. My Anxiety is always at the back of my mind ready to strike me again, but you can learn to deal.

I'm not sure how to answer this I would recommend you to talk with "a different listener" sorry I wish I could be more help but I think they will be better understanding what your going threw

Anxiety can go away through seeking the right help. Therapists and councillors are great at helping you see things in a different way or to plant the seed of actively changing things you aren't happy about in your life.

The more relaxed you are the less anxious you will be. Eventually you will just be okay in situations you used to be really anxious in

Anxiety is something that a lot of people will experience and is something that is apart of everyone; however, when anxiety causes difficulties in how we function, then it is a problem. What are the triggers or our anxiety? Why are we anxious? is it okay to be a little nervous or scared?

Anxiety WILL go away with the proper support and actions you take in order to better yourself. Anxiety will come back at times but when you learn the proper relaxation methods it won't be as daunting because you'll then know how to deal with the anxious feeling.

I don't think anxiety ever truly goes away, as it is healthy to be anxious about certain things and in certain situations. I do, however, think that you can learn to manage and control your anxiety to a point where it doesn't interfere with your ability to do certain things! Anxiety management and prevention is a huge factor in living a healthy life with anxiety!

Yes, if you focus on yourself and employ CBT and other techniques to overcome anxiety, you can make it go away. I suffered from anxiety and used certain techniques and resources to make mine virtually go away. You must remember that you will never completely eliminate anxiety, because it is a natural human reaction, but you can decrease the irrational anxiety that you suffer from.

Never. My experience in school has messed me up so much in so many ways, and raising my anxiety levels is a massive one

Anxiety is different for everybody that experiences it. For many people, the anxiety will get less and less intense and occur less often until it eventually disappears. It is never certain if your anxiety will 100% disappear
