Nice to talk to people who might understand what I am going through.
I'm a 32 year old guy from Northern Ireland who was yesterday told straight in the face by my GP that I am a hypochondriac with OCD and a General Anxiety disorder. I suppose that's better than the liver failure, lung cancer or carcinoid syndrome(he laughed at that one) that I was expecting him to suspect I had.
I spend pretty much every waking minute believing I am about to die and live through a whole host of physical symptoms on a daily basis. It's got to the point where I don't know which of the symptoms are genuine and which ones are being manifested by my anxiety.
I'll go into more detail in the appropriate sections but happy to find a forum like this and maybe the more time I spend on here the less time I will spend googling symptoms.
