Hello and welcome to HealingWell. I am sorry you are stressing right now and it feels to me like you are having Anticipatory anxiety......see this link, just click on it.
You will find a lot of good info in this thread.
It's lovely to have you join us. Often an illness or medical problem can be a trigger for anxiety. Are you taking any medications for this anxiety or is it all a new experince for you?
Please feel free to share your worries with us and we will help out with suggestions, we are not professionals but we understand!
It definately sounds like some form of anxiety. There are quite a few options for treatment of anxiety whatever the cause. There are some great books about coping with anxiety "living with it" by Bev Aisbett is one of my favourite, and if you look up at the top of this forum you will see a link to anxiety resources under the name Wen.
Keeping yourself occupied is a good way to help with anxiety, but it will always come creep back when you relax, especially at night. Have you tried journalling out your anxieties? Sometimes when you put your worries down on paper it helps you to see that they are often unrealistic. It helps me to sort fiction from fact!
Good luck, Meg
