I was free of health anxiety for about nine years but sadly it's come back - and worse than ever.

Will it ever go for good - I thought it had, but no, it's slipped back into my life.

From what I understood from my counseling in 1996, it'll always be with you but it's recognising not only the symptoms but the triggers as well.

I do understand why mine has come back, but that doesn't help me when I'm in the throws of some wild fear red alert over a perceived illness I have just discovered.
