feeling so anxious past few days

Posted , 4 users are following.

To some people other will sound design stupid but I'm so scared. A few days ago I read an article about a young woman who found a mole when she was pregnant and now only has 8 weeks to live. I'm not petrified as I got a new mole when I was pregnant and I'm cared to go to the doctors as I feel it would be to late? My heads boggled but I have had this mole 6 months plus now and it has not changed its tiny it's not raised it doesn't hurt it's not irregular or itchy or painful but yet because I have seen that article I'm petrified ... if it's not one thing it's another ... when does this end sad

    Reading things especially on the Internet is the worst for anyone with or without anxiety!! But easier said then done. I suffer with health anxiety and I can't take my own advice. I've had a fear of vomiting for 10 years why I don't know but it's always what if this and that happens. I became obsessed with germs and everything being cleaned all the time.

    I guess I fear all health issues I can't control.

    But since January this year I had this turn at work and felet like I was gonna die I.couldn't breath had chest pains and pain in jaw and.down my arm so off I go to A&E and they did ecg chest x ray bloods and said I'm fine well it got worse from there. I read lots of women being misdiagnosed with heart problems being fobbed off as anxiety ect ect so ended up visiting A&E a few more time same tests done nothing showed also saw my gp on God knows how many times again not one doctor I've seen believe I have any heart.issues.

    But I just can't get out.of my head something awful is going to happen to me.

    Hey Lexie

    I am pretty sure your mole is quite normal, it's just the way your mind works that starts to make you worry about everything. I have suffered really badly for over three years now and have had every test under the sun so I know I am just anxious. The problem is im so exhausted all the time it's hard to believe. The holy grail is to find something you enjoy so much that you don't have chance to let your mind wonder. Find something you really love and enjoy, try and start living as much as you can and enjoy life, I hope you start feeling better soon. I am now on sertaline which is starting to help, but still have a long road ahead. Take care x x
