I've been suffering from health related anxieties since I was 3 years old and it was around the time I lost 6 family members in a row to cancer. It first started when I heard about choking in pre school and I had a huge panic attack. Then it moved on to suffocation, drowning, and breaking my neck (I was litteraly only 3/4 at the time). Ever since I've had extreme anxiety. When I was about 5/6 the fears were more due to ghosts, curses, ect. (I used to refuse to wear clothes that I thought were "cursed") I also had irrational fears of a snake in the cafeteria, scissors, intruders, and electrical cords. When I got older I started to worry more about health things like cancer, heart attack, tumors, ect. It was so bad so that when I was 7 and 8 I washed my hands every few minuets. But recently the anxiety has gotten so bad in the past few years. When I was 12 I was super afraid of some cardiovascular problem. I began to get into the habit of searching every single symptom and I had knowledge about so many diseases just in case I get them. I started to have panic attacks where I thought I was dying. The fear didn't stop until I went to the doctor (for a different reason) and he told me I didn't have heart disease. This no longer works. Nothing relives my fear anymore. With in the past year my fears have gotten SO bad. I had multiple panic attacks a day and I started to develop agoraphobia where I couldn't leave my "safe zone". I couldn't go to school for a long time. This time was so hard for me, and in this time I've ran to the hospital about 6 times, called 911, and had extreme panic attacks everywhere. My fears kept switching: cancer, respiratory problems, heart problems, brain tumor, everything. Eventually summer came and my fears calmed down (though I did have a lot of trouble with a heat stroke fear over the summer). When school started in September it was mostly fine until last month. I started to get my chronic dizziness again, and the fears came back. It is so so scary. I constantly feel like I'm going to faint. I constantly monitor my heart rate, peak flow meter, and everything. And nothing will satisfy me anymore. Going to the doctor only makes my fears worse as I always worry that they misdiagnosed me or I forgot to tell them a symptom. I am so so so scared all the time. A few weeks ago there was a time where I didn't have any medical fears and so instead I had mental fears about my mental health. I always find something to be afraid of and I have these constant symptoms of dizziness and fatigue all the time. I see a therapist but she only helped me control my panic attacks, not the general anxiety. I'm so scared all the time.
