New Introduction
« on: March 01, 2014, 05:31:00 PM »
Hello everyone,

I am so happy to have found this forum. I read the article on anxiety and MS and WOW! What an incredible post.

I faced my first panic attack about 15 years ago during a nasty lawsuit. Since then I have grown a lot and learned that I'm a performance addict, which was causing tons of anxiety. I have made huge progress with this area. In fact, I would say that this anxiety has been gone for years now.

Unfortunately, I have recently realized something deeper is going on. I have had Health Anxiety off and on over the years, but lately it's been really bad. With the help from a LCSW I'm realizing that the developmental trauma from my childhood could be contributing to some unresolved issues. In fact, I think my performance issues was just a cover for my health anxiety. As a child from second grade to ninth grade, I had three close classmates die and I never processed the trauma. I just stuck my head in the sand and became a workaholic probably to avoid dealing with the issues of death. Now every little health issue creates (unfounded) fear.

Regardless, a whole new batch of anxiety (that I thought I was over) has swept over me and I was glad to find this community.
