Yesterday afternoon whilst sitting in a meeting with colleagues I suddenly started to feel unwell. The meeting was going well and my mind was not skipping to anxious thoughts. I felt like I was coming down with something like a cold or flu. I felt light headed and a bit wobbly on my feet. I took a couple of paracetamol tablets and felt slightly better. I enjoy attending this monthly meeting and for the first time I considered leaving early. I made it to the end and went home.
For the rest of the evening I felt a combination of feeling physically poorly and very anxious. I distracted myself with small tasks and TV. For the first time in months I took a diazapram tablet to help to calm myself down. This morning I have that cold is coming/flu feeling and am a bit anxious. What I am unsure about is being able to tell the difference between having regular minor bugs and ailments and needing to see the doctor. I am struggling at the moment with health anxiety.
Very best wishes to you and have a great day.
