  • hi sorry your feeling like this.Firstly you need to tell yourself you have been checked and you are fine (hard I know believe me) Secondly take your attention away from the bloody media it has a lot to answer for.I have health anxiety so know what you are feeling you have to just keep reassuring yourself you have been checked you are fine x

  • Hi there i know how your feeling been feeling the same as you i have just been diganosed with anxiety and depression my heart beat so fast had tests done all is fine you have got to try and settle down as i know you can make yourself worse with worrying about nothing. take care x

  • Hi, I absolutely hate the media because every day it's some report on a heart attack, cancer, exercise or the bloody 5 a day.

    I've found myself thinking am I eating my 5, what are my 5 and if the 5 I eat are any good.

    Then it's 'I didn't do any exercise' cos I don't like going out and because of that I'm making myself worse.

    Then I read that a supposedly fit footballer has dropped down dead!

    No wonder I'm anxious!

  • I totally agree with you i'm now at this place in my life everything in moderation

  • I would recommend getting hold of this book anxietyuk.org.uk/products/h...
