For me it started when I was younger. I would be afraid that my dad would be killed in a car wreck when he went out or when I was a teenager before I started to have sex obsessing over me being pregnant. I didn't know it then but I have always been under stress. I have always been thinking and obsessing over my health.
My mom was born with holes in her heart and my whole life she was in and out of the hospital. Maybe my anxiety stems from that? As I got older after my mom passed I started obsessing over my heart and thinking it would just stop beating. Then it morphed into I was just going to stop breathing. These were just thoughts no physical symptoms. Then 2 years ago I moved away from my home town and on a way to visit a friend bam the physical symptoms of anxiety hit... I was driving and this wave of fear and panic hit like I have never felt before. My heart raced so fast and hard that I knew I was either dying or having a stroke. 2 years later still dealing with the physical symptoms of anxiety. I have been seeing a therapist for the last year and while some symptoms have subsided I have begun feeling something new
. It's depressing. I pray that I get through this once and for all. I'm very tired of dealing with this. It's exhausting. So that's my story. After constant er visits, Drs visit, blood work, special test, I guess it's just plain ole anxiety
