I have been so scared that my vertigo and subsequent and subsequent dizziness is symptom of something bad. I have been trying to desensitize myself to my fear, by not seeking reassurance about my symptoms and listening to recording of what I am afraid of. I started feeling little better. Then boom, I read about that Enews correspond that had tumor and I am paralyzed by fear all over again. Now, I am afraid to speak for fear I will slur my words. I hate my anxiety! I feel like crying, I am so beaten down.
