I have posted here a few times before, and usually about
the same thing
Does anyone here have SEVERE health anxiety? I wake up worried about
my health and go to bed the same way...no matter what I do I cant shake it and it is eating me alive. I was DX'd with fibromyalgia, also known as a great imitator of more serious illnesses. I am VERY worried that it is something worse
I was dx'd by an internal med specialist, and it was confirmed by a rheumatologist, yet I still dont seem to accept it. It doesnt help that I read so many horror stories about
how the tesing isnt accurarate and dont mean anything , or that misdiagnosis is common....AAARRRGGGG....And now I worry about
everything....I am so stressed from all this that I think I am making myself physically ill...my hubby doesnt know what to do with me and just gets mad...I am ready to scream...I have an 8 year old son who really needs his mom back but I am just so consumed....I also have dx's of generalized anxiety disorder, panic attacks and mild agoraphobia...I dont have any health insurance, so therapy is out, i am on ativan, as well as lexapro 20mg a day that I get from my doc in samples...believe it or not i am better than I was
Sorry this is so long, just wanted to listen to myself whine I guess, and wanted to know if anyonbe out there has dealt with this too?
