I've had bad anxiety for as long as I can remember and from time to time I have really bad bouts of it. It usually gets worse when I think about my health. If anything happens to me, even in the slightest, I start to freak out. This past week has been really bad in particular. My neighbors cat happened to bite me and now I can't stop thinking about all the illness's I could have. It's constantly "what if" in my mind, what if she gave me rabies?! what if she has an infection... It literally never ends. Even with constant reassurance from everyone that I'm okay, I still can't stop thinking about it. I also have sinusitis which flares up every once in awhile and this past week i've had a pounding headache that I can't get rid of. So that also adds to the anxeity of "is something wrong with me?" My stomachs in knots, i need to use the bathroom at least 2 or 3 times a day. My hearts pounding all the time. I'm literally a mess. I just don't know how to handle this stress anymore. It seems like one thing after another and it's a never ending cycle. If anyone has any tips or advice as to how I should go about handling this i'd really appreciate it. I know it's no quick fix to manage anxeity, but anything helps. Thanks.
