Hi guys this is my first post here so I'll try and keep it short!:). I've had health anxiety for a while and it's ranged from brain tumour to testicular cancer, all this worry has took a massive toll especially with college work. However, while searching on good 'how to get rid of health anxiety' I came across a post that said 'a feeling of being unreal may be a sign of schizophrenia' & schizophrenia has always been a huge fear of mine ever since I found out what it was and now already suffering health anxiety and reading this I went into a full blown panic attack of worry. I didn't feel un real or anything but since then I can't stop worrying about what if I became schizophrenic etc. Worrying so much that I can't enjoy life anymore, life feels like a chore and I can't take anything in; I'm just doing what I have to do and go to bed well try to go to bed but sleep is slacking at the moment. I just really want to go back to normal and feeling everything and enjoying life. Basically I just want to know if there's anyone else who has or had health anxiety and apart from their physical health, worried about their mental health.
Thank you so much for any help!
