I make myself ill!

Posted , 7 users are following.

I have felt fine all day, however my health anxiety is sky high! Does anybody ever look in the mirror and convince themselves they look poorly? Then all the symptoms kick in?

    Kirsty are you on any meds?  I've been reading your posts for a few months now and you repeat the same questions.  I think if you feel this bad you need to do something about it. You are constantly asking about stomach noises, wee colour etc.  Please end this for yourself, there is always a way out.  If you are worrying this much about stuff you need to get help.  Life is too short to be stressing out about silly symptoms.

      Agreed and I've had ok few weeks. Then something else crops up. Loads of people are constantly posting on here. That's what this site is for. Life is too short I agree but we are all on here for a reason.

      I'm the exact same steph. But I'm feeling a lot better this morning. I had a good nights sleep. I'm using the whole, I'm fine stop being a drama queen Kirsty approach! The more I stress the worst things are. I don't feel I need meds cos I know I can control it. Sometimes I just let it get the better of me. I have seen people who are on meds write on here all the time constantly so clearly they don't help that much! Don't want to fill my body with crap. I'm a strong person deep down. This is just a wierd phase I am going through x
