Happy I found this forum :)
« on: May 20, 2014, 09:44:15 AM »
Hi everyone,
My name is April and I have been suffering with anxiety and anxiety-related issues for about 7 years. It all seemed to start after I ended up in the hospital for a tear in my esophagus  (eating disorder related) and nearly died from it. Due to that episode I have been particularly obsessed with my health, and I assume everyday that something is wrong with me that I won't know about until it's too late.

My anxiety has been particularly bad for the past few months as I have made a major life change (broke up with a long time boyfriend and moved out of my house). During this time I have also been trying to taper off my anxiety medication (bad timing, I know!), and I have been experiencing many more physical symptoms that I have ever been used to. What brought me to this site is basically my incessant Googling of my many symptoms. I believe the first time I saw this was one of the many times I thought I had MS and I Googled "Ms or Anxiety". Well, thanks Google! I'm glad I found some answers I can believe in rather than obsessing over WebMD all day and night.

I appreciate everyone's contributions and I hope to help others as well with my story. :)
