I know that what you're saying makes sense, a lot more sense than what my brain is telling me. Honestly, I don't even know why this particular fear is so bad or sudden. I've had x-rays before and have never overthought it, but this time I can't get the catastrophic though out of my mind, as ridiculous as it may sound.
I've actually been doing great with HA for the last few months, and I've really been working hard to get it under control. The only reason I even reached out and posted on here is because I've been nauseated, had jaw pain, and have had a headache all day since I got the x-rays done, which sent my HA into overdrive. I know these symptoms could be unrelated or a direct result of my anxiety, but there's that stupid, nagging part of my brain shouting "it's radiation poisoning from the x-rays" at me and it's hard for me to get it under control.
Anyways, thanks for responding. I appreciate you taking the time to reach out to me.
