Health anxiety

Hi everyone. I hope you are all well and doing better than I am. My hypochondria is really depressing me. I am usually strong and positive, but I sincerely have to admit I am not very strong anymore and I feel very scared most of the time. I don't want to feel this anymore. I am using meditation with headphones to calm me, but I really need a more permanent fix to this. I have exhausted all my ideas and solutions...I mean it is ridiculous that I can't even leave the house or bed on the worst of days, and most days. How did this happen to me? I am not this person...I appreciate any kind of help friends. This struggle is so hard, I never imagined getting to this point in my life. Be well and my love is with you all.

  • I've been having a rough night. My day wasn't so bad but for some reason my thoughts are racing and making me think and feel like something is wrong with me. I always think there is something wrong actually. I wasn't like this at all three months ago. Currently thinking there's something wrong with my brain from symptoms. 🙄 You're definitely not alone.jusy trying to push myself to do things I don't want to in the days

  • I completely understand exactly how you feel. I appreciate your response, it is a comforting reminder I am not alone and that someone, well many out there understand. Thank you very much. I hope it gets better for you.

  • Hi Stay-strong85, Yes you do need a more permanent fix. Being scared all the time is physically exhausting as well as robs you of your life. How much do you not want to feel like this anymore? Sounds like a silly question I know, but changes have to be made. If not you see that you are getting stuck in this pattern of not wanting to leave your house or bed. It will only get worse unless you learn to accept what life has given you and start turning it around. As to how this all happened to you? Know that it has happened to the best of us. We wish we would feel better, don't understand why we have to be this way as well as give into the symptoms. What we need to do is regardless of how we feel, we need to continue on, to have a purpose in life. No matter how small you start, it will grow by making you more confident that you can and will function with or without anxiety symptoms. They are not real, it is a mind game . You and you alone have the key to turn this all around. The struggle may be don't struggle any longer. Cast your fears to the wind. The chances of something happening due to the symptoms are so minute that they don't deserve all the attention we give to it. Stay-strong, claim your name back, you can do it. xx

  • You truly touched my heart and made me cry out of relief. Your words are extremely helpful. To answer your question...I do not want to feel this way anymore at all very badly. Very very much! It is so exhausting, and I really need to get out of the funk. Thank you very much for taking the time to say all of this. My mind really has ahold of me amd the physical symptoms are what scare me. Every doctor has told me they find nothing, but my mind is so fixated on the opposite. I just want my sanity back and to be able to enjoy things the way I used to. No fear. The fear is keeping me hostage. Medication scares me and most of it makes me worse anyway. I know I need therapy, but that is in the works. Thank you again for your time and words.

  • You are very welcome. I have been where you are right now. We are all here to support you. You are not alone my dear. x

  • When I get stuck in a cycle I like to read positive articles about anxiety. I am currently struggling again and going back to my old habits of over focusing. But I read through this site last night and it has helped, although I still feel like crap today I am letting it be rather then worrying about why I feel so bad. Have a look at this site the articles are quite good

  • I also have health anxiety and it sucks . Please please please let it go , and let God. Give it to him and fight for yourself ! Get yourself back . Keep in touch

  • Thank you very much. I am also struggling with my faith from all of this, but I am starting to open back up to God. I appreciate the reminder because I needed it.

  • Your not alone there I live in fear constantly and I turned to meditation which has helped enormously. I also take diazepam . Relaxing and stop thinking to much is the only advice i can give. I think reading the news headline everyday can also make people feel anxious and live in fear. So if your reading to many bad things like murders shootings car accidents All can play or mess with one pschey. Wishing you all the best and believe god is watching over you and I will pray for you . Just be and dont over think things is another bit of advice i received and it helped.

  • Thank you so much, all of you, for your response. Your words are powerful in times like these. I really needed it. Makes me feel some relief and motivation to keep going in good light. My love goes to each and every one of you. Thank you.

  • I know anxiety can shake your faith sometimes, but God is there for us when the devil tries to hold us back . Just tell him to get behind you and let Jesus take over . Get out of bed , take a hot shower , get dressed nice and do something, anything even if you have to force yourself . I can't wait to hear your next post , I bet your going to feel better❤️
