Are you treating your anxiety at all?  This can stop.  You can take your life back.

I'm on clonazepam, lorazepam, and gabapentin and i'm going to start seeing a neuropsychologist in april.

I have a sinus headache too i forgot to mention that. And all this pain is constant, it only goes away a bit when I take a tylenol... which constipates me.

Is the Klonipin as needed or taken on a regular basis?  If it's as needed, take one, and distract your thoughts.

It's taken on a schedule. 2mg, 3 times a day. I donno I feel like if I were to distract myself i'd only be deluding myself because I don't trust my own judgement.

I have the exact same fear and have done for years.. One thing that really helped me when I first read it and has continued to help me is: if you had it (I don't like typing the name haha) then you wouldn't wake up from sleep. You'd go to sleep and go into a coma or whatever. On the first day you experience 'symptoms'. Also I ALWAYS get worried about spots on my body so much that I no longer look at my body. It's really crap but getting dressed etc, I do not look. Just look ahead. I've even tried to limit showering as much as I can as I ALWAYS freak out if I look at my body and see a spot (there's always some kind of spot or rash going on)
