Hi to all of you

Hello to all, hope you are all listening. I hope you are here for me. I'm feeling really off. I don't know if I'm sick or what. I've had bouts of anxiety for a long time really. Intrusive thoughts etc. Anxiety, deoression name it. I've been active and inactive member of this group. But I always find solace with you all.

I've just cameback from a week holiday to see my parents it was all good, though I picked up a bacterial infection probably from food. I've met doctors there and they treated me and then had to fly back and go back to work. 10 hours flight and moment I got back I went to see another doctor again to make sure I'm okay (I'm a hypochondriac 😔) and they said my gastritis is acting up so they just gave me meds to settle it down.

I haven't stopped feeling weird since then constantly worried crying panicking thinking I'm sick and somr weird things would happen that Maybr after 3 blood tests In 10 days and doctors said it will be okay that I'm here panicking and tertified of unknown. I feel spaced out, brain fogged and I feel lethargic... Light too... I really don't know who and where to run to....

Sorry your suffering at minute. Trouble is when we suffer any common illness it knocks us for six and our minds go into overdrive . I recently had a stomach bug and imagined I had the worse. At present I am terrified I have something wrong with my lungs following chest cold before Christmas. I had x ray weeks ago but to scared to ask Gp for results. The more we focus on our symptoms the longer they stay with us . Try and deal with the anxiety. Check out Professor Mark Williams Mindfulness on you tube.


Hi, you sound just like me, I am at the doctors every week with everything and anything wrong with me!!!!

If I have a headach I think I am having a brain hemmorahage Or something itd rather exahusting all of this worrying!!!!?

I think the doctors are sick of me but I cant help it.

I am completly tired and lathargic all the time yet a steuggle to sleep at night! My mind just wont seitch off its rather stressful!

i was at the doctors yesterday as I have been having panic attacks quite frequently recently. The doctor was really nice, we talked about my anxiety etc which helped me alot as I had never discussed it woth a doctor before.

He referred me for CBT which I am now stressing and anxious about, the doctor made an sppointment to see me in a month ro check how I am doing, but a few hours later he phoned me saying that he think that he needs to see me sgain sooner as he was concerned, so badically he thonks I am insane right?????

So now im stressing about that........

So tou are not the only one xxxxxxxxx
