I am also having a lot of anxiety about the new coronavirus. I am trying not to read all of the articles, but it's hard to avoid the headlines.
I've tried learning about it in order to get my fears in check but that hasn't helped either as there isn't a lot known about the virus or how it works.
I'm relying heavily on my xanax prescription, reading fiction, and keeping myself as busy as I can.
It's not just you, this is tough for any of us who deal with health anxiety.
I think the best we can do right now is practice our grounding and calming techniques, make healthy choices, wash our hands when necessary and try to keep calm.... And come here, on this forum, as much as we need to for support.
