Hi TR and welcome!
I am sorry to hear of all that you are dealing with atm...of course you are feeling overwhelmed and stressed...I would be too!
Not because I think you have reason to worry, but because I am just wired up the same way.
Waiting on results such as you are regarding your breast biopsy is rough. So many 'what ifs' run through the mind. Everyone can relate to this...but we with anxiety take it to the next level!
So, now you are experiencing the 'teacup effect'...where stress drips into the cup, drop by drop...until the worries overflow, and there is little control now for keeping the waters contained. Was the bug/bat incident significant in and of itself? No...it is an irrational worry that has just tipped the scales. However, the fear is very real to you!
Fortunately there are methods that will help you regain management of your rational thinking again...and to help you decompress in general.
Please see our Resources
at the top of the main forum page here. Inside you'll find self help in the form of Therapy Worksheets for managing intrusive thoughts...and a link for Positive Mantras and Affirmations to keep your thinking in a good place...links for Stress Relieving Exercises as well as sites specifically for Health Anxiety.
Practicing the suggested exercises daily will make a big difference in how you feel until you can get an appointment with a therapist.
Keep posting with us as well if you find it helpful. We understand, care and support is key!
