Anxiety for 2 years

Posted , 3 users are following.

I have an irrational fear of being sick. It has progressivly turned into generalised anxiety where everyday i fear im ill. Im very healthy and never get ill but last week i had my first sickness bug in 10 years. It wasnt as bad as i thought but now im constantly thinking am i ill again? Am i not? Do i feel sick? Dont i? Why did i get ill? Its driving me crazy. Im very anxious ive had all the help you can think of i cant be like this forever

    Hello beth, with your thought off illness thats the anxiety side of things talking. Not everyone has the same sort of help mechanism but there is one out there for everyone. If you keep your head up and try positive thinking things become easier. Try relaxing and spending some quality time with yourself. The trick being if your happy then everything else falls into place. It will take time to remove the negativity but life is like a grand national except when we jump the hurdles its not about winning but just finishing the race. Hope this gives some help but take care of yourself smile
