Question please help me

i went to the clinic today because i have convinced myself that after a yeast infection, i had contracted some deadly disease and that i was going to die, or not be able to be with my kids...and on and on. while i was there the doctor just kept saying that i didnt have what i thought i had.

she said that i needed to see the therapist, and she gave me ativan. she said that what im going through is anxiety and panic attacks! i had never even considered that was what is wrong. looking at all of the symptoms, and really taking an honest look at myself i believe that is whats wrong. my big trigger is if i think that myself or my babies are sick, i always think that it is going to kill us!

like i thought that when my son had a really bad stomach virus that he would just die from it. or the yeast infection i had conviced myself that it was HPV, and therefor i must have HIV. i know it sounds crazy, but in my head, thats what happens. i think it comes from the fear of not being here for my kids. im just wondering if anyone else feels this way, im scared, and i feel so alone in this.

pretty much before today the thought of telling ANYONE that i felt this way was just not an option. PLEASE TELL ME THAT THIS IS PART OF THE ANXIETY!! That i can get better with help, and that i can overcome this!!

Re: please help me

Hypochondria is a behavior that comes along with certain types of anxiety. I worry daily that I'm going to die because I have a head pain here.. or a chest pain there.

What you need to do is learn about how the stress of anxiety is going to make you feel weird and sometimes like you're going to die because of the pains it can give you. But you need to keep your mind of you and keep your mind on things you want to do. Of course it's hard at first, but over time you learn how to deal with things and become better at it.
