Health Anxiety
« on: January 26, 2014, 06:01:22 PM »
Hello, I am new to this forum, desperate for any info on health anxiety.  I have suffered all my life.  I am now 64.  I was thinking about accupuncture and was wondering if anybody has ever tried that.  I don't like side effects of anti-depressants and don't want to be in a habit of Xanax.  I can't understand why nobody can tell me if I have a chemical imbalance or my negativity self talk and just life experiences I have lived through have created the anxiety.  Started around age 20 with panic attacks then seemed to come and go throughtout my life, but seem to be coming on a more often basis which is making my life difficult. Grew up in a perfectionist household and recently got a handle on being a compulsive cleaner myself.  I am getting so desperate I would almost consider ect to erase my :action-smiley-065: brain thoughts, lol.  It will be nice to hear from anyone who is suffering from anxiety. :action-smiley-065:
