That's actually really triggering and probably wasn't written by a person with anxiety  :angry:

Pretty funny. But i can definitely see how it could possibly trigger some panic in certain people.

I can see how it may be triggering to some, but it's also clearly very satirical, and I can see it being written by someone who once suffered from HA and has since moved forward with their life. They have a very accurate insight into the HA mental process. We don't generally jump to the logical first conclusion: ya know, a headache just being a headache. It has to be something terrible. Next step: Google. Next step: we think we're dying. That's the point it's making. It could be a good thing for a lot of people to read - it is lighthearted but deeply relateable, and it ending with "maybe I'll just take an aspirin" kind of sums it all up to say to us: Hey, don't jump to the worst - consider the common things. Look at all the unnecessary chaos we put ourselves through. 50+ of those would never have been needed had 57 been at the beginning 99% of the time.  :yes:

The whole part about death and infections almost triggered me but that was pretty funny. Good hypochondriac humor is rare. Most people just think of us as weirdos who need to take a Chill Pill, and most jokes are at us instead of the anxiety.

Alpha that second link is hilarious!  If the "I'm Going to Die" journal is out of print we should bring it back.  Anxiety Zone Publications?
