Hello, I am living my life the same way, All I do is worry my throat is gonna close shut. Mine never changes it has been my throat for about 2 years now. You would think by this time I would be over it, but I am not, I am a mother of three, 10,6,and 3 and I don't let them do anything either, I am so afraid they will get hurt, and when they are sick I am always checking on them in the night, I feel the same way about cleaning my house too. I try to keep the germs down so they changes of them spreading are slimer!!

I just wanted to let you know there is someone who feels the same as you!!

take care,

Hi Tina,

I went through a very bad patch of health-related obsessions as part of my anxiety and depression and it sounds to me that you thoughts are more like mine than full-blown OCD. I think you need to make sure that your doctor takes your anxiety and obsessions seriously so you don't keep going through this suffering - do you tell him about all of your symptoms such as the checking? There are medicines and pschotherapies that can help you - are you having any treatment?

With lovingkindness and wishing you well.....


PS I adore your accent and the way you write. Scotland is a place I love.....

I think this is the category for me! I'm always dizzy, I always have headaches... I've seen almost every specialist that I can. I've seen an ob-gyn, neurologist, endocrinologist, I've seen 3 general practicioners... I'm worried that they're missing something. They tell me it's psychological, though... I'm a vegetarian, and I'm worried about not getting enough vitamins, so I take about 12 different ones, I take cold meds all the time, I always have odd sore spots on my body... Every day, I take about 25 pills...
I'm seeing a dermatologist next month, but I do have dermatological problems... from obsessively picking my skin.
I hope that someone out there feels the same way... I'm worried that my doctors are somehow overlooking something. I've had an MRI of my head and neck, chest x-rays...

I understand your pain. I am 26, and I am always worrying about health related stuff. It got so bad at one point, that I was running to an urgent care center like every week and they eventually banned me from the center!. I felt so upset and ashamed when that happened. I told myself that it was my disease. Once they banned me from there, I would run to ERs and wait for hours to be sen. But I had to stop doing that b/c it is expensive, and also b/c i was afraid that maybe the dr. would try to have me admitted to a mental institution. I was inpatient once for 5 days in 1995, ( for depression) and I would never want to go inpatient again. Anyway, I finally got on some meds ( luvox) and started seeing an OCD specialist, as well as a hypnotherapist, and a counselor. At one point, almost every day it was another OCD appt. But now iam just down to seeing the OCD therapist on an as needed basis. and the counselor twice a month. I am supposed to see her every week, but I dont have the $. Tina, I know how you feel. I tis very painful. I hope your doctor maybe can prescribe you some anti anxiety meds and an anti obsessional - Ask him about Luvox. It has worked for me. Esp in the beginning when I first started taking it, last year.
