Does anyone else get really anxious when they get ill? I had a throat infection for a week. I've been stuck in bed and unable to work and been taking care of myself. I think I'm feeling less sick but way more anxious and rundown. I can never tell how sick I actually am and how much of it is my anxiety over inflating how I feel. Today I'm feeling very sad, anxious and my energy is low. I also really struggle to sleep. Got about 4 hours in last night. Night time is the worst time for me. Often I wake up feeling anxious and unable to get back to sleep.
Thinking about seeing a psychiatrist. It's just so expensive.
