does anyone else have family or friends who are un-supportive when you confide your anxieties with them? do you get the "you're crazy" eye roll? Im the type that needs constant reassurance from friends and family, and it seems like it pains them to listen to me when im so sure im "dying". ive even been told to hurry up and die already. these people genuinely dont understand that this is not something i have control over, and its not something i do for fun or attention. i feel like the only way i will ever get across to them that this is all very real to me is if i have a legitimate mental break down infront of them. like do i need to cry or something? Im getting tired of living this way. ive had health anxiety and anxiety in general for as long as i can remember. i would give anything to have the kind of day normal people do, where they get to wake up and enjoy things instead of being obsessed with the fact i probably have some kind of disease. i will be preoccupied with one disease, before something miraculously convinces me, no no i dont have that.. and then i pick up a new one. its horrible. and hypochondria is a real crippling disorder and i hate that people treat it like a joke.
Why do we not have a hypochondria awareness month? LOL
