Hi. We always come on here when we are feeling bad, which is what it is for. However i thought i would write today because i am feeling good for a change. I suffer from health anxiety and go through long spells of thinking i have a serious illness. It really destroys my life when it is happening and can last for months. Gradually i work my way out of it and get better. I have just been through 2 months of thinking i have something horrible and i physically make myself ill which reinforces what i am thinking. I've just come out of it and am feeling fantastic. I feel optimistic for the future, can start planning again and am getting my energy back. Although it doesn't get any easier when I am actually in the middle of it, when i come out the other end i seem to feel stronger each time. What i've got to work out is how do i stop it from happening because it will happen again, but i'm ready for it......do your worst.
