      @happy_girl I try my best not to. But it gets the better of me sometimes.

      Give yourself grace. You are NOT alone. I had the worst debilitating thoughts spinning around in my head. Their were many nights I couldn’t sleep, I was even afraid to be home by myself. Release the attachment of the negative thoughts from you. You’re scary thoughts are not yours, they belong to “negative Nancy”. Give your negative thoughts your name to detach yourself from them. I always remind yourself that they are not your thoughts do you think happy thoughts etc. I have also read alot of positive self help books and affirmations and jack Johnsons apps for sleep and relaxation. Remember that you are not going crazy. You are not alone. 💕 🙏

      yano I have done alot of reach on somatic symptoms for awhile now and I thought the same thing honestly...and I have..well awhile ago and they just kinda blew me off but I have a new therapist since then so I'm definitely going to bring it up to her !

      It sounds like it could be somatic symptom anxiety, and it could help to talk to a therapist about it.

      Yes, especially concerning my heartbeat! The only thing I have to try and help is to just not google symptoms and I usually ask a friend to tell me I'm not dying and then I'll believe it.

      • beautifulDisasterxo

        529d

        @sillyashell I usually go back and fourth with problems with my heart , my brain, and cancer. Cancer runs on both sides of my family pretty badly. So it's a big fear of mine. When my mental illness first started I was ALWAYSSSSSS on Google googling everytging possible about what and how I was feeling. Very bad idea I've learned. I still do it once and awhile but I try to stop myself as much as possible.

      You are not alone love I have a lot of illnesses and my anxiety and depression are from living with chronic illnesses and chronic pain daily. I had a breakdown yesterday I cried so much and so hard I told my mom it's exhausting being in pain all day every day. I wish I could have a few days where it wasn't that bad. But unfortunately chronic illness and chronic pain have been my life for the last 9 years. So I definitely get it love you are not alone. Feel free to inbox me anytime you need someone to talk to.☮💙🖤💜🕯

      I have the same problem all I ever think is I got something wrong health wise

      • happy_girl

        522d

        @nonamki me too i google everything it's starting to drive me crazy

        • beautifulDisasterxo

          520d

          @happy_girl I try my best not to. But it gets the better of me sometimes.

        • nonamki

          522d

          @happy_girl I feel you and that why I restrict myself from Google I had it real bad yesterday I went down a rabbit whole all I did was look up why my tongue is hurting turns out it was the corn chips that did it but I looked it up end up thinking I had mouth cancer ended up looking at my mouth for ages inspecting it and putting a flashlight to see if I had any of the other symptoms so today I turned off my browser my Google chrome app I disabled it and only turn it on if I really have to but I just forget that I turn it off because I don't see the app on my screen it hides it when you disable it but doesn't take it off completely so you can just go back into settings and app settings and just enable it again when you need to

      • beautifulDisasterxo

        529d

        @nonamki yup exactly! It's like anxiety and depression can't be this bad so you think it has to be something else !

        • nonamki

          524d

          @beautifulDisasterxo yes and then comes the Google search of your symptoms which leads to thinking you have an incurable disease then comes the chest pain the butterfly feeling in the put of your stomach then here we go the racing thoughts which ends in crying and chest pain and you just want to get better sometimes it's a struggle to even wake up because you know that feeling will be there when you do

    • Tress

      531d

      yea I get that. I have anxiety underlying all the time but also get severe panic attacks to where my heart races and I can not breathe. I even get to where I have to leave a room and calm down. But I get the stress anxiety because with my husband's health I have a lot of stress.

      • beautifulDisasterxo

        529d

        @Tress I still get panic attacks once and awhile and sh!t do they SUCK! worst feeling ever. I'm so sorry you have so much stress about your husband 😔I hope he's okay!

      • Stitchlover23

        530d

        @Tress I feel that. My health and my fiancees health are bad rn and we are trying our best to figure it out

    • Deanka

      532d

      I have bad stress anxiety and some health anxiety too. It’s ruining my life

      • Tress

        531d

        @Deanka I get it I have an anxiety disorder on top of the health anxiety and stress anxiety. It can be crippling. The only way I have gotten through my panic attacks is to like play a game or do something that takes my brain out of anxiety mode. It does not work all the time but I always try that first if it does not work than I go to my larsapam and it works for me. Hope that helps.

        • beautifulDisasterxo

          530d

          @Tress I don't get panic attacks so much anymore I use to ALOT I would have panic attacks 3-5 times a day and sometimes they would last hours. But it seems as if nothing can distract my mind like nothing helps !

        • Deanka

          531d

          @Tress I don’t really get attacks. My anxiety is either at a 3 or a 10 all the time. And stress anxiety is the hardest to control it seems. I know I have that bc things stop working for me.

      • beautifulDisasterxo

        532d

        @Deanka my mental health has ruined every part of my life

        • Deanka

          532d

          @beautifulDisasterxo yup

    • Tiyanna

      532d

      You're not alone bc I have also experienced this

      • beautifulDisasterxo

        532d

        @Tiyanna really ? How long did you experience it for the constant symptoms?

        • Tiyanna

          528d

          @beautifulDisasterxo I have been dealing with anxiety since I was 21. Now I'm 31 and from 30-31 my symptoms have gotten severely worse tbh bc now I'm dealing with everyday anxieties and I'm not sure how to make them stop by I don't like taking pills so I just smok CBD everyday mostly 😥

    • Josie21

      532d

      You’re definitely not alone! I have anxiety and contamination OCD and they feed each other all the time 😭😭 it’s gotten so bad to where I was washing my hands so much they blistered, but the fear of getting sick because of something was so intense. I’m doing better now, but I get it.

      • beautifulDisasterxo

        532d

        @Josie21 I'm so glad your getting better ! I think that's what's going on with me it's like everything is feeding off each mental illness, the ocd , the generalized anxiety,health anxiety, depression I just need it all to stop !

        • Josie21

          532d

          @beautifulDisasterxo I totally understand, it’s still a struggle every day. I just want to feel normal and happy again. If you ever need to talk, I’m always here!

    • Stitchlover23

      I feel it. You're not crazy. You just are amazing as God put you on the planet. I have that all of the time recently.

      • beautifulDisasterxo

        532d

      I’m in constant pain 24-7 it’s horrible

      • BeanBetter

        @Jerz1006 The pain is the worst part

        • Stitchlover23

          534d

          @BeanBetter no problem

      • beautifulDisasterxo

        534d

        @Jerz1006 Im so sorry. Everyday it's something new for me this is why I think there's something very wrong with me

      • Sarcman

        534d

        @Jerz1006 I totally understand.

    • BeanBetter

      535d

      I get sick alot because of anxiety 😥😥😥😥 but I am so medicated

      • beautifulDisasterxo

        534d

        @BeanBetter I'm so sorry 😥 your not alone !!!

    • mustardandkatchup

      535d

      Dude, it’s relentless. I still deal with it and I’m “properly” medicated 😅 it’s not you!

      • beautifulDisasterxo

        534d

        @mustardandkatchup really ?!

    • Tress

      535d

      I am like that with my oxygen levels when I am sick. But I also know that you know your own body. With the anxiety part I take my prescription medicine if I feel like it is to much anxiety.

      • beautifulDisasterxo

        534d

        @Tress same here. But as of late I feel like it's not working anymore.

    • Sarcman

      535d

      You are definitely not crazy. I have the same exact thing.

      • beautifulDisasterxo

        535d

        @Sarcman uhh I feel absolutely crazy sometimes ! I just want to live my life instead of surviving!

        • Sarcman

          535d

          @beautifulDisasterxo I totally understand. I just want some sense of normalcy.

    • ShellBelle2121

      535d

      And bingo was his name-o same as you 💕

    • doppelgaenger

      536d

      You aren't any more crazy than anyone else. Mental issues manifest differently for everyone. But, physically, our bodies are much stronger than we think. As many times as I've gone to the ER thinking I was going to die, nothing serious has ever been found.

      • beautifulDisasterxo

        535d

        @doppelgaenger same. When this all first started for me ...God I was in the er so much they knew me by name !!!! And like you they never found anything serouis ! But my brain is always telling me " there missing something ! There's something wrong with you !"

    • doppelgaenger

      536d

      YES. Some days are worse than others. I'm hyper aware of every sensation in my body. I'm always looking up symptoms for any possible explanation for even the slightest symptom. I know it's not rational, but I still do it because, what if something was wrong and I missed it. I would love to turn my brain off.

      • vmartinez6

        535d

        @doppelgaenger me too!

      • beautifulDisasterxo

        535d

        @doppelgaenger literally SAME!!!!!

    • Tress

      538d

      I have a lot of health issues and had panic attacks because of them. So you are not alone.

      • beautifulDisasterxo

        537d

        @Tress 😥❤️

    • vmartinez6

      539d

      I would agree I think about my health way more than I thought I did until my mom pointed out how much I talked about it

      • beautifulDisasterxo

        538d

        @vmartinez6 I try not to but it consumes my life !!!

        • vmartinez6

          538d

          @beautifulDisasterxo mine too. It's frustrating

    • Asteroidrose

      539d

      • beautifulDisasterxo

        538d

        @Asteroidrose it's non stop !
