I’m coming to realize that a lot of my anxiety is health based. It’s interesting because a lot of the resources online focus on trying to think about how there’s no point in worrying if you aren’t sick and to focus on that, but for someone who does actually have chronic health issues it’s not super helpful. I’m curious to hear if anyone has any tips for dealing with health anxiety?

      What exactly are your fears based upon? Depending on the fear, one of the only advices I can give you is to monitor your symptoms. While this may not help some, keeping a solid record of your symptoms, even if it's something as simple as a journal, can remove some of that unpredictability (and make it easier to describe to a physician). As for fears that certain symptoms/illnesses will come or resurface, try looking up preventive measures in order to combat not only the symptom/s, but your fears that it could come back.
