My Phobia is out of Control!!!
ok.. so this is I guess to vent. I have this HUGE phobia of going into anaphylactic shock. It is getting to the point where I dont even want to eat food anymore b/c I think I will have an allergy from food! I have never had an allergy to food - only wool. I have some minor medication allergies(pretty bad one to Cipro but..) It is driving me insane that I am constantly worried about everything I eat. What can I do? I eat but not very healthy. I can't eat anything raw because I am afraid of Oral Allergy Syndrome and I can't eat nuts, fish, shellfish, or anything similar b/c of the allergy's. I think it will all lead to Anaphylactic shock. I take xanax twice a day and go to a psychologist. What else can I do? My world is getting smaller b/c of stupid phobias which I know are completely irrational. I miss fruit and vegetables and fish but everytime I eat them I am afraid I will die!
Sorry for the venting...
