Lately I've been suffering with this mild anxiety and obsessive thought of going crazy/insane. I have at least 3 mild panic attack in the past month and a half. I must admit that I am somewhat hypochondria.
I feel like those anxiety attack kind of trigger my OCD about going insane. It's really one of the worse feeling. Always had this fear of going schizophrenia, psychosis, etc. and the more I research it, it always scares me. I know my obsessive thoughts are weird but would I be in more risk thinking about it and my anxiety worsen?
I don't have any known mental illness in my family (none of my uncles, cousins, aunts, grandparents, siblings, or parents on both side of my family don't have any very serious mental illness).
I'm not feeling any type of depression, nor I'm going through anymore stressful situations. My "mild" anxiety doesn't really effect my social life and be able to do the things I do everyday (like go to school, hang out with friends and family, going out in general, etc).
But it is rather annoying and overwhelming.
I feel like I'm a little bit more irritable. Have more awareness to sound. Anxious at times. Worry about the wrong things.
I'm only 20. I RARELY EVER drink. I don't smoke weed or cigarettes. I feel like I'm actually an average healthy person with no known illness besides my bad allergies. Trying to reduce my caffiene intake (although I don't drink soda or high caffiene products). Not taking any anti depressants or SSRI. Because I feel like it's mild to moderate. not severe.
I actually visited a psychologist talk about my fears and obsessive thoughts. And to a doctor to relieve my anxiety symptoms (light head, nausea, dizziness, pressure on my head). My blood pressure, heart rate, and physical exam was normal..
hate this obsessive thought and feeling. maybe I'm fearing my anxiety attacks?
