My doctor has told me that I have been suffering from anxiety, however I'm starting to wonder is it normal. Basically I feel like everything in my life is going so well and that eventually it's going to go. Why should I be so lucky something's got to give. I feel like if something is going to happen I won't be able to handle that I'll just fall apart . Does anyone else feel this way? Or know what I'm suffering from?

Sounds like one of the manifestations of anxiety to me! I've been through this before too. Along with following your doctor's advice, don't neglect positive self talk. Say to yourself "I can do this. I can handle this. Even if something bad happens, I can deal with it." Say it even if it feels like a lie, say it till you believe it.
