I got diagnosed with anxiety in May this year. It has got significantly better due to medication and I now no longer need it. However, the health anxiety/hypochondria side of things is returning. Every day I spend at least an hour googling illnesses convincing myself I've got a serious injury. If I've got a headache - a brain tumour. Periods - cervical cancer. You get the idea. Anyway I just wondered if there's anyone else that suffers this as bad as me and what I can do. A big one I'm worried about lately is HIV. I know some people think this is funny but I really don't know how to manage it and I'm making myself ill worrying all the time. I'm so worried I might actually have one of these diseases yet I'm too scared to go to the doctor. It's a vicious cycle and it's making me miserable!
