It all started about 6 months ago when I got the flu really bad and took a lot of aspirin to deal with some of the symptoms. I did some research and read that you shouldn't take aspirin for the flu especially if you are under 18 because it has been linked to causing Rye's Syndrome. After I read that I started freaking out thinking I was going to get Rye's Syndrome and would constantly look up side effects online and would think I had them, even though I really didn't. That is initially what started my anxiety and constant worry. After about 2 weeks my worries about Rye's Syndrome went away, but the anxiety didn't. I was having anxiety attacks every once in a while and then about 2 more weeks later I got depressed, like pretty dang depressed. Crying, no motivation, all that stuff that comes with depression but it only lasted like a month, the anxiety was still there though. The constant worry still hasn't stopped, but a lot of times its unnoticeably weak. Then other times its really bad again. Well just about 2 weeks ago I got depressed again but not near as bad, I just couldn't smile or anything, and cried a lot, but that time it only lasted like 2 days (and possibly linked to girlfriend problems) And now here I am, still constantly worried, but now it's mainly worry about what it wrong with me? Am I a hypochondriac? Or is it Anxiety? I worry nonstop about having GAD, Bipolar disorder and basically just about anything, especially mental disorders that I research that has the symptoms I feel; depressed (short periods), anxiety, fatigue. I'm never manic, so I really don't think I'm bipolar but I still worry about it nonstop just because the symptoms are so much like GAD. Are these normal signs of anxiety? Or is it GAD or what? Driving me nuts... Thanks for any help or support! Oh and I have no intention to take medicine, unless its all natural!
