MOst A/P peeps are like that
we are all very much in tune with our bodies and our minds
This is one reason we alwyas feel we arw "Hypochondriacs:" which IMO we are NOT
Health anxiety yes I agree very much with that because we are so tuned into our bodies
Really listen to your heart start counting the beast they will go down I believe I know they do for me
Take care

I read a book called The Instinct To Heal and it talks about how the inner part of our brain is our emotional brain. So yes our emotions are directly connected to our physical bodies. However anxiety will NOT cause death. Us people with a/p seem to be overly sensitive and so our bodies react to our emotions instantly. What I am trying to do is reprogram my thoughts so I don't automatically think the worst. I try to do this by catching myself thinking negatively and I say to myself stop. Only positive thoughts, CBT has really been my backbone for this. I have a free online CBT course that someone has sent me and I have had to adjust it a little according to my anxieties, but it has been a great help to me and I will send it to you if you would like me to. Just e-mail me, my address is in my profile and I will forward what I have to you gladly.

Yes that's me--over in tune.
Had lots of practice with heart palpitations and dizzyness (like getting up too fast-ended when I left home for college) since early teens. Now I'm 43 and have gotten real good at it.
Last winter I started to feel myself falling asleep-slowed heart rate, blood pressure going to sleep status, light sleep state, and yet completely aware of it like my brain wouldn't rest about this as though I had to see where it was all going. I would eventually fall asleep but would wake up a number of times thinking I was blacking out--until finally I slept. Got to be that when this would happen I tell myself I that I continue to wake up alive in the AM so why worry but that anx kept on until for some reason it stopped.
I started to think I was becoming too intune with my body and health--I knew there had to be others out there who feel the same but not in my little circle of people, it's great to hear of these things and read of others coping skills. But for myself I'm at a point in my life and experience that I can understand this and accept this and cut myself some slack--or if anything have good conversation material for myself late at night.
