Is this Anxiety? Please help?
« on: January 11, 2014, 05:06:15 PM »
Hey guys, this is my first post on this forum and I would really love your help!

My anxiety started a couple of months ago. When I was really little my aunt got breast cancer and I use to search up a lot of things for her to give her hope and in the process read too much about breast cancer. I was 11 at the time. Since then I was always scared of getting the same disease and was super cautious with any changes. One time I got so scared when my arm was hurting and was convinced I had the same thing. I was super scared but didn't tell anyone for a month. I was 18 at the time. Soon after I told my mom who then told me I was being crazy and I dismissed my fear. The month that I had all this and was scared I couldn't breathe properly and had heartburns. But soon after talking to my m
I got over it. But that was the worst experience of my life so I was always so scared that it would happen again. I would always pray that it would never happen while continuing my life of being happy. It still however deeply affected me. I was so scared of the experience, however, I wasn't always thinking about it. Just at night before going to sleep I would pray that it never happen again.

After a couple months, things were getting stressful and one night I couldn't sleep and I felt like I couldn't breathe and got super scared that I was reliving the same experience. I don't know how I managed to fall asleep that night but I did and woke up the next day not remembering a thing/it didn't affect me. However during the night time after that day I would always get a weird feeling on the pit of my stomach and feel scared. Later on I started to really get scared of the feeling and started to get panic attacks. I went to the doctor who told me I as anxiety. I later went to a psychologist who told me I had very little anxiety and nothing else. She then went out of town and I began to recover little by little. I didn't feel scared at night anymore but I still felt very scared at times. I wasn't feeling the same feelings or getting panic attacks but when I was trying to be normal flashbacks of me with panic attacks and anxiety would reappear. I would constantly be scared to get anxious again and still am. I am not sure if this is anxiety or these feelings of fear I get are panic attacks. All I know is I don't feel anxious but I feel very scared of getting anxious which really scares me and prevents me from
Moving on. Do I have anxiety or am I traumatized? PTSD? Please help? I am sorry if there are errors I am writing this on my phone. I just needed to ask this as soon as possible and couldn't wait 8 hours to get home and use a laptop to write this. I hope you understand and sorry for any spelling errors.
