A Hypochondriac since I could remember..
« on: March 02, 2014, 03:02:23 PM »
Hey everyone! I'm 22 and I'm fully aware that I am a hypochondriac. I think it all started in middle school when health anxiety really started to affect me. With time I've been able to recognize and discern some of the intrusive obsessive thoughts that come with being a hypochondriac. I've had a lot of freak outs.. Including thinking I had MS... to having full blown panic attacks. But there are days where I just can't shake the feeling no matter what I do. I couple years ago I was labeled as a glaucoma suspect and just within the past few weeks I have been obsessing with the fact that I might be going blind within the next few years.. even though I'm completely jumping the gun and I have my annual exam scheduled for two weeks from now and I know there is no use in worrying about something that hasn't even happened yet... I can not shake this feeling.. its soo horrible. So I came to find support and give support to those people also going through health anxiety.. because I know exactly how mind obsessive and debilitating it can be.
