Anxiety reoccurance thansk to Hypochondria
In '05 I had massive panic disorder.<edit> It was a massive fear of being schizophrenic (thanks to all the news stories)
Anyway I used to suffer dissociation and derealization as well, It used to terrify me, literal terror. Eventually I got a handle on it and by '07 I was back to normal.
Anyway I have a new problem now, I have a big fear of having HIV, and at times Leukemia. Its driving me insane and I'm constantly rubbing my armpits thinking theyve swollen up. I also do have some kind of yeast infection(?) which I've had ever since I had sex last year, Its because of this infection I keep getting these attacks and its driving me mad. I want to go the doctors but I know they will fob me off and make me go down the GUM clinic and I hate it there.
I know its in my head because theres no symptoms, and ive checked for swollen lymph nodes and there isnt. the only thing i have is this infection and thats my own damn fault!
anyway im not really asking for advice or anything, i just wanted to see if anyone else has similar fears which have little or no justification?
