    Overthinking about tiniest feelings you feel in your body and your mind goes “OMG!! It is the most dangerous illness you’d ever think of!” ? If so then you aren’t alone. 😢 I have it too and it got better thankfully.

    Mine goes away sorta but will always come back. It goes week to week sometimes for whole months.

    That’s amazing! Mine sadly almost daily but at least I can be peaceful for most hours unlike the past. Trust me; it gets better! Take your medication on time, see a therapist, check youtube for tips since each one of us have different things that work for us! Personally what helped me and was(kinda still) hard to do; is “acceptance” when i feel a symptom and my mind start thinking of worse case scenario. I say “yeah, so what? I accept to have it. Its not a big deal.” It isn’t easy but holy, how strongly effective it is!

    Oh also a shower, small workout/exercises (even just 30m walk), night proper sleep, plenty of water and healthy diet. (And minimize your caffeine and unhealthy sugar stuff) these might be very small steps but very effective

    I live in fear everyday of my life. Worse when I started to have actual health issues the past 3. It was so bad I even put myself in a mental hospital because I didn't know how I could go on living like this anymore, just to be blown off by doctors for years telling me I'm fine when I know I'm not. I know my body, and everyday it tells me something ain't right. So now everything terrifies me. I can't even bring myself to take Tylenol anymore because I think it's gonna kill me. All you can do is take it day by day. Sometimes hr by hr. Find things to occupy your mind, so thise thoughts aren't running thru your head as much. Even an hr relief is relief. Try painting. Calling a friend on the phone. Watching a funny movie. Anything to keep that brain busy

    This makes me feel, not so alone 😥 I suffer from this on the daily! It's hard trying to explain to someone who doesn't understand and they just look at you like you're an attention seeker or overreacting.

    Everyone doesn’t get it. People see me as an attention seeker bc I have such a unique disability. This shi- sucks so bad. Day to day. I’m glad I know y’all that experience this too because I feel so alone and anxious some days. Pls yall feel better. Hopefully I will too. ❤️❤️❤️
