OK, here is my health anxiety, and I am VERY embarrassed to post it..... I always seem to be slightly short of breath and do a lot of "sighing." Also, I have a tendency to feel weak and dizzy. So, I usually convince myself that I am dying of a blood clot/aneurysm in my head or lungs. Here is the embarrassing part that I am ashamed to admit..... I AM A SMOKER! Just admitting this brings tears to my eyes. You would think that I would quit. I am so ashamed.....
