Hi, Im new to the site. I have had severe anxiety most of my life, and lately my anxiety has turned to hypochondria. I obsess over anything that goes wrong with me, anything I notice makes my anxiety sky rockets. I live in constant fear of contracting a fatal illness and obsessivily check and exam my body for signs and symptoms of anything. I recently got a throat infection and was put on anti bioticas and its all I can think about. My doctor assured me it was normal and treatable but I feel like she must have missed something and its a sign of a more serious illness. In the past Ive thought my heart was going to stop pumping and I constantly checked my pulse. Ive feared my lungs will stop working and Ill suffocate to death. I think its gotten worse lately because I no longer have health insurance which worries me constantly. I always wonder what I will do if I get sick with no insurance and its driving me insane. I just feel like im going crazy and dont know what to do anymore. Im just looking for anyone who can relate to me of give me advice so I can stop feeling so helpless and alone. I feel traped in my own body, my mind is my worst enemy!
