So.. I have suffered from Health anxiety all my life but it comes in waves. It got so bad when I was doing my dissertation that I was actually convinced I was dying of cancer. So dealing with that and my dissertation at the same time.. I cannot describe how stressed I was! After that it was all calm until two weeks ago when my boyfriend and I moved into our first house together!
Meant to be an exciting time right?! Not for me! He accidentally knocked a bed post on the ceiling which is made from artex (which we were told before that could contain asbestos) now.. Freaking out!! It was crushed and then walked on.. And now bits of it is everywhere!
I Googled everything about it and panicked myself. I cant eat.. Haven't really unpacked because I'm scared to touch anything! Cleaned up what I can see.. But I know there are still more bit floating around! I know the white asbestos is not as harmful as the blue/brown kind.. But still totally panicking! Picking up even white specs of dust and not feeling safe unless I have the vacuum or something to wipe it up near by!
Am I overreacting?
