I hadn't really noticed but my health anxiety has been slowly creeping back up on me just like it does - insidious and quiet - just nibbling at your thoughts and fears.
I had a major health anxiety attack yesterday and committed the cardinal sin of Googling. I terrified myself and still feel shaky now.
Why did I do it as I know it'll only bring fear and worry. I know this but I still went ahead looking for reassurance and found only horror and worry.
Let this be a lesson to all of us with health anxiety DO NOT GOOGLE!
Now, all I have to do is follow my own words and try and stay calm.
