Hey guys, I'm unfortunately living with anxiety and its taking over my life. I'm only 18 yrs old and I have to say I suffered pretty bad when it comes to anxiety. I have to say it all started when I got a bad reaction to a needle last year and I felt so I'll ill and the lypmh nodes in my neck swelled and I thought I had cancer but I got it checked out and the doctor said they'll go away on their own. However now I'm so health conscious its crazy, when I feel sick in the stomach I think some things wrong and then my heart races, I can't breathe properly (which is quite often where I can't inhale all the way but some days are better than others) i also lost my appetite and because it was everyday I was never hungry and I lost weight. I'm just over it all yet I have a friend who gets the same symptoms as me and its reassuring at first yet I still question everything. I just feel like I can't remember a time where I was normal.
