Kinda freakin out need to vent

Hey everyone I woke up and I felt completely okay I trained jiu jitsu last night and I was a little nauseous and felt fatigued but I pushed through it and just kept going and my throat had been like scratchy for like almost week now I think I’m not coughing up a storm at all so that’s good I force cough if anything to try a relieve my throat but anyways today I get good little sore and my left side wasn’t in pain to much it was there but I didn’t pay attention to it, then I ended up coming across the cornavirus stuff.. and I’ve been trying to not look it up and just stay away from the news in general just to keep my kind away from it but now my sore throat feels like there is slight congestion and feels a little cold at the bottom of my throat top of my chest area now I’m thinking I have pneumonia and or the pain I’ve been feeling in my side for years is cancerous and I’m gonna get the Cornavirus and it’s gonna kill me or something idk I know I sound crazy but my fiancée is having a tough day so I don’t wanna bother her to much I feel somewhat not myself when I’m walking around, I know I need to probably go to the doctors and check out what’s going on in my side if I have a pinched nerve or muscle tension or something like that I’m just scared and idk what to do the world seems so scary right now like a bad movie I feel like everything is gonna get out of control and idk..I don’t have a fever or I’m not coughing maybe I just have some type of mild cold but idk I read to that this can be a early sign I cancer idk why I google stuff but I do I just refuse to believe my anxiety can cause all of this and what not..

Hi dameinlee94, how about starting by thinking more positively :)

Never Google, it gives you but a generalized explanation and not a valid diagnosis.

Very often dehydration as well as mouth breathing can cause a dry throat almost

feeling like a sore throat coming on. Pneumonia usually presents with a fever of 101.0

or more. The pain that you've been feeling in your side for years doesn't sound like Cancer

but like you said a pinched nerve or muscle tension that needs to be checked out by a doctor

(but not Dr. Google) :)

Even if you got the coronavirus, you would be taken care of better than you ever had.

You'd be #1 priority patient. Chances of mortality are low. You have more of a chance

of getting hit by a car when crossing the street. :(

We've got to stop overthinking all the things life throws at us. It just causes us more stress

which in turn lowers our immune system. Stay positive, eat healthy, wash hands and get

enough sleep will lower your chances of getting sick.

Rethink your ideas in what anxiety can and does cause. It's quite convincing at times but

don't allow it to throw you into a state of panic. Then it wins and not you. :) xx

Not a problem . It’s on amazon

Hello :-)

You know from the past you have HA and we can control it and then out the blue it rears it's ugly head again and of we go back on the cycle of fear but you did it once and got of that cycle you can do it again :-)

You are so lucky you have age on your side so all your fears make your odds of any of them coming true right low keep that in mind

The pain in your side you had that some years ago it was nothing , it would not go and then come back and be something your anxiety want's you to believe that so it can keep a hold

You don't have pneumonia , I had that last year and trust me if you had that you would know about it and reading your post I see no sign this is a worry

This virus is frightening so many people especially people with HA so if we feel a sore throat or anything we have read we instantly go into full panic and it feels worse than what it is and we focus in on it and the more we do the more we feel it and the more we panic and the more we convince ourselves doom and gloom is on it's way when it is not

Anxiety can actually give you sore throats and despite this virus people will still pick up common colds and sore throats and again you have youth on your side , it is not affecting younger people , even if they get it they are shaking it of just like they would a common cold

Try telling yourself , just for today no matter how I feel I will not focus on it , I will just see it as nothing , something that will pass , try this each day until these fears start to decline , it is not easy but you know you can do it :-)

Take Care x

Remember that is the anxiety telling you that which is very powerful but deep down you are fine

If I was you I would be more worried about where your next toilet roll is coming from , the world seems to have gone mad buying them :-D

Hope that makes you smile and have a good day , you will still be here later :-) x

lulu-1 in reply to dameinlee94

Yes I remember you like training and I do wonder if sometimes you pull a muscle and this is what causes the pain , they are so easy to pull and can take weeks to heal so as much as you like training go steady it could help :-) x

dameinlee94 in reply to lulu-1

Yeah I keep trying to tell myself it’s nothing major but it’s hard when I feel not myself and just my head feels weird today like I’m out of it and my side is hurting off and on and I believe that’s what’s causing me these feelings and I can’t stop checking updates on the virus today trying to look for answers but the more I go down the rabbit hole it gets darker... and now I’m at work just not feeling to well so idk it’s hard today for sure

lulu-1 in reply to dameinlee94
