Hi all, my name is Cory! It doesn't seem like many people check the introductions but I thought I'd drop in and say Hey. I've been frequenting this site a lot in the past 6 months and it has helped a lot. I'm trying to commit myself to CBT though, which requires I refrain from reassurance. I was in an OCD program for about a month and I learned a lot. I'm here to help myself and I hope to help others!

My biggest fears are heart related. (Worried I've had a heart attack in the past/will have one in the future; worried I have cardiomelagy, CHF, heart disease, you name it)
I also fear I'm going to die of an asthma attack. (I do have asthma and bad allergies)
My fear mostly manifests itself through compulsive checking, testing, obsessing/ruminating, and depression. I use to have a lot of panic attacks, haven't had one in awhile.

Everyone tells me I'm fine including doctors but I've yet to believe them. ;)

Anyways, if anyone else relates, feel free to message me.

Hello Cory,
Nice to have you on here. I actually just read your introduction and found it insightful and helpful. I identify with you it seems. My fears also revolve around heart attack. I've been working on CBT.  I know that neither one of us should rely on reassurance...but, it's nice to know other people have they same issues and our coping too - solidarity.
I'm fairly new to this site (past week or so).
I hope to stay in contact though, because I really commiserate with you as I see our similarities in anxiety.
