In brief: Anxiety is medical

Long term anxiety is usually a medical problem (gad).
It is no different than having high blood pressure or diabetes. The long term treatment usually involves (among other things) an "antidepressant" like ssris/ snri. The treatment is generally life long. You need to see a psychiatrist for proper evaluation. It could be something else.
