I saw the doctor on Tuesday because the cold I had was getting worse (seemed to be settling in my chest)...he examined me, ruled out pneumonia, and diagnosed bronchitis...my vital signs were all very normal and no fever...all good news, right? I've had bronchitis before and have no reason to be anxious about it....but here I am, in full-blown health anxiety state....I had made such good progress and am so frustrated that I'm back to thinking that this illness must be something more sinister...I've even googled my symptoms which I haven't done in a long time....I just feel so tired and "off"...does anyone else find that their anxiety comes back or gets worse when they're sick? I'm sure I'm just exhausted, but I can't get myself settled down enough to sleep....ugh.
