Hey, I'm 18 and for the past 4 months ive ben suffering with a health anxiety, but I'm convinced it's much more than just that. I worry about everything, I'm so scared I'm only 18 and I can't live my life. I get so many physical symtoms (symptoms) and they make me worse, my latest fear is blood clots. I have had my bloods took for this and the nurse rang me and told me they was normal?!, can it ever be wrong?, Earlier today I was walking and something popped in my thigh and ever since all my calve was sore so now the pain is all in my chest and I have the worst cough.. I don't know if this is just my anxiety playing up or not.
Jessica, I highly recommend seeing a counselor if you're not already. 18 is way too young to be carrying around all this self-inflicted heavy baggage. In the meantime, try this -- take the attitude that "if something bad is going to happen to me, fine. Let it happen." It won't. Eventually you'll realize that your body is fine, and that it was just messed up thinking. Best wishes!
