My anxiety is terrible when it comes to new illness', this weekend alone I have convinced myself I have a lung problem (bad back) some form of cancer and this weekend has also led me to believe I could possibly have Zika. I have recently travelled to Mexico and I was bitten to pieces, I have a rash on my chest and arms but no itching and I feel fairly well, except for my anxiety which never lets me feel 100%. my mum has the same rash but worse and she is bed bound and says she feels the worst she has ever felt. She is off to the docs today, I am getting her to mention my rash to them too, its a close family doc. Now anxiety is leading me to believe that I am going to be bed bound in the next few days as my mum is, also anxiety makes me really worried about her and the fact she could die from this! why is anxiety such a torment like this. I am pretty sure I feel fine but I am convincing myself that I am getting a cold, that's what anxiety does right? what does everyone think?
