Always think something is wrong with me! New to site!
« on: October 05, 2005, 02:29:47 PM »
Hi all,

I am hoping I can make some sense out of all of this.  I have suffered from generalized anxiety for the past 10 years.  I usually can deal with most situtations.  I feel that my anxiety is caused by chronic worry, I am a 'worrywort' about everything including my health.  I feel that I am a borderline hypochondriac.  I am always analyzing symptoms, no matter what they are, and find that I am always worrying that there is something wrong.  What I have come to conclude in this is that I feel I use this as a defense mechanism.  In my mind I think that if I always keep in check what is going on with my health then I won't be surprised.  I go to the doctors and he knows I have anxiety so I feel he never takes me seriously, plus when I leave I feel doubtful and think he has overlooked something.  Is there anything I can do to relieve this feeling of always being sick.  When I get myself in a highly anxious state, I always have all these kinds of illnesses...muscle tension, headaches, lump in the throat, etc. Even if I tell myself that these symptoms are anxiety, I still look on the internet under cancers, tumors etc.  I gets really old and I just am tired of it.  Any suggestions???
