Greetings fellow worrywarts,
My name is Shelly and I have a lot of anxiety disorders. One of the worst ones to deal with is my hypochondria; I am constantly worrying about death and dying. If I'm not worrying about getting some sort of cancer, I'm worrying about going into anaphylactic shock, or getting into a horrific car accident, etc etc etc. I am also obsessed with worrying about my loved ones....like my toddler developing childhood leukemia or my teen getting abducted, raped, then murdered. (What a horrible life I lead, right?)
Today I was feeling under the weather, and that quickly turned into me believing I have developed some sort of terminal illness. I was so worried that I couldn't do anything besides search the internet for anxiety forums to ease my mind, and here I am.
It's really exhausting being me. 😔
