a month ago i went out of town and had cheated on my boyfriend..... pretty much i was acting recklessly, not myself at all. now i'm back in town and i've had a couple anxiety attacks, partially because i'm unhappy here, problems with my parents, and keeping secrets from my boyfriend. i've been itching a lot, been stressed out and depressed. i'm not sure if the itching is caused by my anxiety, allergies, hormones or an STI/STD. i have no rashes, but i have been having acne break outs, usually around hair follicles and i've noticed more hair growth. i think about every itch, tingle, pop, or pain in my body constantly. i also think about morbid scenarios like "what if i have AIDS?" or "life feels different when you're dying." when it gets really bad i feel desperate and i really think i'm going crazy. i have difficulty trying to sleep early and i feel apathetic about school. all i can do is worry. if i sit in class all i do is evaluate how my body feels and wonder what horrible disease i may have and if i've passed it on to my boyfriend. i think if i go see a doctor i'll feel better. the past couple times i went to the doctor, it turned out to be nothing. once for chest pain, which turned out to be most likely caused by anxiety and the other time was a sore throat caused by post nasal drip.
could my itching and acne breakouts be caused by anxiety?
could it be that i translate guilt to a physical reaction of disease?
