Hypochondria/PTSD?
I don't know what to do anymore. About six months ago, I was in my first car accident (and got very lucky), but ever since then, I've become so obsessed with and worried about my health. Every headache means a brain tumor, every pain means a broken leg or arm, every new symptom means something severe in my mind. I've been to the doctors, they've told me I'm okay. I've taken into account all logic, but it still doesn't quell my fears. I'm always afraid and I'm frequently upset. In addition, a few months before the accident, I graduated high school and went off as an adult. I've been told that the accident and the stress of my job and such, are the reasons why I feel so terrified and depressed, but I still don't know what to do. Shouldn't this have gone away by now?

There are so many things that this can be.  The fact that it started with the car accident could be the PTSD, however, I would think your fears would have been  more centered around driving....You sound like you are suffering from depression/anxiety....any change in life..even good change...causes stress and maybe you are on overload....I would suggest seeing a therapist or someone to talk to to get a diagnosis....there are different therapies that can help you out and medication (which I would suggest as a last resort).  Best to you.
