I've had anxiety my whole life. I worry about everything and stress pretty easily.
I work hard to manage it and I think I have a pretty good reign on it at this point in my life because I know that it's not beneficial to me and I'm able to recognise it either straight away or after a short period and to deal with it.
However the one thing that I really really find hard to cope with is my health anxiety. I have quite a few health problems by this point. Non of them are life-threatening for the most part.. but are chronic and progressive illnesses and when I'm experiencing symptoms or new diagnoses (which is happening more regularly) i really get down. All I seem to focus on is how bad things are and how much worse they can possibly get. How much more painful or unbearable can it be?
I know worrying and focusing so negatively is doing my immune system no favours... but when i am dealing with constant physical reminders of my conditions - how do i stay strong?
