hi, I am new here and glad I found this group and know that I am not totally alone! I have major health anxiety and am always worried that something is wrong with me. I have imagined that I have had at least 5 or 6 different types of cancer over the past few years. Once one health worry goes away because of seeing a doctor another pops up. it totally takes over my life. a few months ago I thought I was having heart issues, then I had breathing problems and both of those things turned out to be stress and anxiety. Now I am back to worrying about cancers again. My doctor keeps telling me I am healthy but I just can not stop thinking about dying or something being wrong with me. I hope this group gives me some sort of hope that I can overcome this anxiety that I suffer from.
I suffer from GAD and in particular health anxiety My husband years ago had cancer and never goes to doctor for checkups (yes I know this is foolish for him to do) anyways can anyone relate to having anxiety themselves and for those they love? If he has a symptom I immediately get anxious and cannot function....don't know how to cope with this
on my third prescription for ssri’s this time it’s Paxil and I’m not thrilled. They won’t give me Ativan..so far..celexa- allergicprozac- bad anxiety and suicidal when will this end
