Do you feel like you experience other emotions more intensely than "normals"?

Obviously we feel fear/stress/anxiety more intensely than people who don't have anxiety disorders, but do any of you seem to feel other emotions more strongly, too? I find I feel EVERY emotion more intensely than my "normal" friends.

Ahh, good point, Nik. It certainly can be full spectrum from super intense to completely numb. I'm usually super intense, though, personally.

I recently went to a counselor with my fiance (pre-marital stuff), and my anxiety was a topic we discussed. They basically said that my range (for all of my emotions) was wider than my fiance's. Meaning, when I get sad, I get sadder and when I get excited, I am more excited. I agree with this completely.

i think i can change over time there was a point when my highs were so much higher but lows so much lower than "normals" but now i dont seem to feel much at all other than when the anxiety hits. the only real thing i have felt i a while was when we lost our cat a few weeks back and that did hit me
