I think we all feel like this from time to time....
I know I have and still do once in a while.
Suffering from Health Anxiety can become really depressing and make you feel hopeless.
I think one of the main reasons for this is the fact that sometimes peace can be very fleeting for us because we cannot run away from our thoughts....there's nowhere to hide.
It's constantly there.
That's why we need to learn how to retrain our thinking....
Do Bio-Feedback, read self-help books, look up hypnosis videos, etc.
All these things help.
Plus, something that helps me is to eat healthy and I recently started a LITLE bit of exercise....it helps when I'm trying to rationalize things in my mind.
But, don't worry...you just like all of us.
All of us have focused on fantom health issues, insisting we have them, for super long periods of time.
It's part of our disorder....
And we are all here for you if you need anything....we understand, all to clearly, how you are feeling.
Just distract yourself, try saying something positive to replace all of the negatives everytime they pop in your head, sip on some calming herbal teas, read a book, take a walk, sing, dance, cook, exercise, clean, etc.
Anything that will make your day better....and don't forget to smile
