I've had health anxiety on and off for years but I've been having a flare up of problems these last few months. The doctors are treating me for acid reflux but I can't help thinking it's something more serious because I feel so rubbish all the time but I know it's probably the anxiety causing most of my symptoms. I've tried for so long to get it under control but I just can't deal with it any more. I really wanted to stay off the pills but I've just made a doctors appointment to speak to them. I can't go on worrying like this anymore. It's taking over my.life and even my kids (2 and 5) are starting to notice somethings wrong with me. I don't want them to grow up with these memories of me. It took every bit of effort just to get out of bed and into work this morning and now I'm sat here like a zombie, trying not to cry and counting down the minutes until my appointment.
