Admissions of a Hypochondriac

Posted 04-24-2015 11:20 PM by W0438548

I'm Hannah. I'm admittedly a hypochondriac. I suffer from severe anxiety. I am here to talk about my problems with other people experiencing hypochondria. My hypochondria began when my mother started battling heart disease. I am only 24 years old. The only family I have is my mother and my sister who is disabled. I constantly think I have cancer. Ive thought I've had breast cancer, leukemia, brain cancer, melanoma, and am admittedly currently worrying I have throat cancer. My neck below my jaw has...

Day 4 on Epival and I think my body is trying to go into a "high". I'm not feeling the doom and gloom today; I woke up feeling like shopping. Any other day, that would be okay. I would indulge .. but these days I'm all like "oh it's just your chemicals Bethany"! So yes, I am confused. Today I am somewhat happy whereas yesterday I was helpless !? I also had a dream about things I do in my "highs".
I'm going to book an appointment with a therapist I used to see...

So. July of 2007 I had turned 18, moved out of my parents house into my own apartment and enrolled in my first year of university. A little bit of an adjustment period there. I slowly started losing weight, stopped sleeping, started crying at random times and would get these episodes of fainting (dizziness, numbness/tingling, nausea, diarrhea, tunnel vision, tachycardia and just a feeling that I was losing control and intense fear). I'm 5'3 and dropped down to 89 lbs. My mom thought I had...

Halloween can be a scary time for some children. Attractions, decorations, costumes, haunted houses, parks and even trick or treating can stir up intense fear. When you have a terrified child on your hands, it can be difficult for them and your entire family to enjoy the popular holiday. Consider taking these few steps, and perhaps you can minimize their concerns before October 31 arrives.

In an age where everyone is connected at all times, and when companies like Google are coming out with devices to make us even more connected, the idea of an Internet addiction may seem ridiculous. Make no mistake, even in a world where everyone has a smartphone surgically attached to their hands, it is possible to cross the line from normal use to addiction. So how can you tell if you have a healthy love for technology, or if you have an addiction?
