So my anxiety is down today but i'm back to where it scares me if I start to feel better. I know it sounds silly but then I start obsessing that maybe i'm bi-polar. I have a cousin that is bi-polar and she has told me that I don't have any of the signs but i'm a big symptom searcher and then an illness gets stuck in my mind. Like going crazy or being bi-polar. I've read all the symptoms for being bi-polar and don't match any of them but then I start to feel better and wonder if i'm know becoming manic if my anxiety has lessened. I don't feel over the top great just better. Yicks i'm once again finding myself in a whirlwind of fear and obsessing about everything i'm feeling. Sorry for venting it just helps me so much. And I need to stop searching for illness over the internet. I know what it does to me.

It seems to me your afraid to let yourself feel real good cause your afraid it wont last. I dont think its bi-polar . Ive dealt with anxiety for a while and I know exactly how you feel. One of my biggest mistakes seems to be yours to...Dont start looking up symptons on the internet! I would drive myself and family crazy thinking I had all these dieases!! Symptons you can have with anxiety can match up to hundreds of other conditions, But it doesnt nessacerly mean you have them.
If your really concerned check with your doctor...a little reasurance can help, I was at my doctors a few times a week at one point! It really helps to talk to people in your situation, It shows you your not the only one thinking these same thoughts to! Goodluck to you .....

  Hi Georgiak

  Sometimes I really hate the internet for I used to do the samething thiking I had this and that, but please have faith in your pdoc for your not going manic/bi-polar for you are just being a little hypersensitive about how you feel and I think that we all get that way from time to time and try to stay off the net looking for other symptoms that you think you my have (it's like putting a log on the fire) take care

Spot on Dave
The more you look the more you have this or that
I also think you might be afraid of " feeling better and making progress " you have been in a safe zone with the a/p for so long it is hard to imagine ever feeling good or better IMO
Dont stand in that slump hun step forward even just a baby step and I tell ya it will make a world of difference
Stay off of the NET .......Just my 1 and a half cents ........
Take care and I am glad you found us here
