Good morning! I am new to this group. I have had anxiety, to a degree, my entire life. However, the debilitating health anxiety started shortly after I had my daughter almost 7 years ago. On the outside, I function. I am a mother of 2, a special education teacher and own my own small jewelry business. However, I battle my thoughts of dying and illness daily. I have diagnosed myself with EVERY kind of cancer there is and it seems to change in an instant. Right now I have shoulder pain (which I've has before with physical therapy) and I feel like my chest/breast hurts too. Of course I either have lung or breast cancer (I've actually made one breast sore from checking for lumps). It started 3 weeks ago, when I believe I pulled a muscle with heavy lifting. That is logical, I am not logical in my head. I go back to work next week (I'm sure adding to my stress) and the kids start new schools this year as well. I am on zoloft (did celexa for 2 years), but just recently starting taking it again. Prior to this I had upper stomach pains. Irony, I don't feel that anymore. It's like my mind can only do one pain at a time. It feels so in my head, HOWEVER, I don't know what to do with the thoughts of constantly dying of cancer. It's making me depressed. Any suggestions?
