Since then I have had a hard time dealing with life. On the outside I appear *somewhat* okay. But I am struggling. This is hard to admit, but I tend to think the worst about everything. I worry about things that are out of my control (dying and leaving my kids motherless, losing a loved one, etc ...).
i understand about
putting on an appearance to get by- most of us do that all the time. it also sounds like you have Health Anxiety- you should check out the Anxiety/Panic forum as they have heaps of info on Health Anxiety and how to decrease your symptoms.
all the best,
