I'm new to this site and I'm deaf myself.
I have mild anxiety problems recently but had been worrying for a long time on & off only when it comes to health but apart from that I still go out, see friends and etc, my parent passed away by Motor neourne and alcoholic when I was younger age 6 & 11 and sent to foster homes.
Recently I was unwell with stomach gastric flu for 11 days and lost appetite, feel nausea and diorreda twice anyway its when I start feel so anxiety and once I got better I thought my anxiety will go away but it didn't and start worrying more about a bit sort of something tiny pressure or something in my right side head near the back of the ears on & off for 2 week but not painful and its not headache just like tiny pressure pain twinges and it made me think what if its brain tumour, it really frightened me, can't stop thinking what if and had to reassure myself by visiting gp to see a nurse couples of times, she reassured and keep telling me I do not have it even promised me but why can't I stop thinking about it? Even went to have eyes test and optician said my eyes is good but vision level slightly change dye getting older and had new glass even said no sign brain tumours to reassure me.It made me ill! Feeling scared what if I can't be able to enjoy Christmas with my husband & family? asked nurse to refer me to see a counselling and she agreed so got the letter, should see the counsellor within 3-4 weeks time and its called CBT counselling so I wonder will counselling help? I dont want to ho on tablets ss want to try learn how to deal eith it with counselling help. I'm just scared what if it don't work and I can't carry on feeling like this! Tired of it! Want my life back and be happy again without worrying a lot.
My anxiety- worrying a lot, google for signs and ask people to reassure me. Think I need ban myself from google as it make me scared more! Also please reassure me that anxiety is nothing do with brain tumour?!? Is it just ur mind with adrenaline?
