Hi..this is just a short intro about...me!
Basically, I am a massive hypochondriac, and have a few OCD-like symptoms too (you may have guessed from my name!)
I have joined this site because I am tired of everyone just laughing at my worries and stress. Not that I want to be told that I really am ill, but it would be nice to have some support as opposed to being ridiculed.
I haven't been properly diagnosed yet, although I'm considering going to the doc some time soon.
Aside from anxiety, I'm pretty happy really. I'm only 15, so have loads of time to get cured from hypochondria...right?
I'd love to hear from anyone with the same kind of anxiety...I basically have more or less textbook symptoms of hypochondria, and quite a few of OCD (mainly washing hands, showering and compulsive checking).
I also spend hours checking illnesses online, so I guess I have cyberchondria as well?
