New to the site :) GAD
« on: February 07, 2014, 12:21:58 PM »
Hi! Figured I'd introduce myself. My name is Katie. I'm 23 years old and have only been suffering from severe anxiety for about 7 months.  4 years ago I contracted Lyme disease (I was blood tested by my pediatrician at the time with the standard ELISA testing). I grew up in the woods in Pennsylvania, so it was not a shock. I was even fortunate enough to have the huge, almost perfect bulls eye rash. Unfortunately, since I hate going to the doctors, I delayed treatment. I now suffer from many other problems stemming from my Lyme disease, one of which I believe is my insane onset of hypochondria anxiety. I had my first panic attack 6 months ago and have never been so scared in my life! Now, every ache and pain is either cancer, a heart attack, or brain aneurysm. I've tried klonopin and CBT, but nothing has seemed to help my anxiety! Hoping blogging will help some! I stumbled upon this site on google and am excited to have a new outlet for my HA!
