I am new to the group. I have suffered from anxiety at different points in my life but it is a very specific thing that I worry about. I worry that whomever I am dating/married to is going to die. If they don't call when they say they will or are late, I assume that something bad has happened. I was married for 9 years and definitely had the problem. I am recently divorced and have a new boyfriend and am having the same problem now. It is so bad that sometimes I drive by is house to see if his car is there or call his office and ask for him to make sure he is alive. Very irrational! I have recently started taking Prozac and have an appointment with a therapist on Monday. I also bought a few self-help things. It seems to be worse now than it was before which doesn't make sense! Wondering if anyone else has similar issues or has some ideas on how to deal with it??
