I know exactly what you mean!

My mom goes out for the night and I shake and cry on the couch until she gets home.

It's really bad when it's at night, at least during the day I think that not many bad things can happen. In fact, my dad had some tests done a few weeks back and I went absolutely insane, I sent my mom emails ALL day from school making her tell me how the tests went the moment he phoned her and I was having breathing problems all day until I finally knew he was healthy.

I am just naturally like this, I'm still at home.

I definitely understand where you're coming from.

Did you mean for this post to be a comment on another thread ?  It sounds like it may have been an answer to another post?

Hey, Austin, hang in there!

That kind of anxiety happens to a lot of us. I have bad health anxiety, and your post reminded me of how even when I was pretty young, I'd worry myself into a frenzy about health tests for loved ones. Try to trust that the doctors you and your family encounter are doing their very best to take care of you.

Do you have any techniques that work to help you when you're feeling anxious? I try deep breathing, but I don't practice it enough. It does help, but it's so much better when you practice during times that you're not stressed. Then you can tell yourself during an anxiety attack that you do have the tools to cope, while you're actually using them.
