I signed up here a few months ago because I have had severe anxiety/panic for over a decade and I think it is spiraling to depression. My recent anxiety is due to worrying about my health. I have posted in the past about this and thought I was going to be okay. I was for about a month or so until my mind got away from me and I started developing symptoms like dry mouth/throat, very dry skin and sweating. Of course I went to googling as I know I shouldn't have and I am so scared because I think I have a disease. It also doesn't help that a month ago a friend of my cousin's died from AIDs and on friday my cousin just passed from a heart attack. My anxieety is at an all-time high right now. My doctor put me back on Wellbutrin like a month ago and I don't think it's helping. I have looked up therapists and even contacted them but haven't returned any of their calls. I am so convinced that I am sick that I don't see a point to anything anymore. I keep telling myself to have faith and trust God but these symptoms are driving me insane.

Well I think the best thing for you to do is get in with your family doc and have some testing done in order to rule out any illnesses. If your test comes back normal that will tell you its just anxiety and you can then find a mind right for you. Good luck and let us know what the docs say.

Good luck
