Hello...... My name is Candice and I’m a long time sufferer of Hypochondria. I’ve also been diagnosed with Major Depression and GAD. I have a huge family, but I’m all alone in the battle I face with Hypochondria. I don’t really have the money to go to the doctor every time I am afraid (but I’m also the type of hypochondriac that is majorly afraid of doctors), so I tend to just let things scare me to the point were I can’t sleep, eat, think, and I’m totally consumed with panic. I do take meds and they help, but not enough. I hope this group helps me out. I really need an outlet. When I’m not in the Hypochondria pit, I’m a loving mother of one, I love to read and binge watch tv shows. I would like to one day go back to school and get a degree that allows me to help those with drug addictions. My life is more good than bad, and I owe that to my Savior Jesus Christ. Anyways I’m really looking forward to conversing with y’all. ✌❤

Hello Candice, you are not alone in this battle. I am a OCD + Anxiety sufferer, also a hypochondriac. Just like you, I hate to go to the doctors fearing something terrible would come out. I use to take medicines during my therapy but it didn't suited me, I used to feel sleepy all day.
I have all through my suffering realized that it's only you who can help yourself. The therapist, drugs, etc can only assist you till a certain extent, that's it.
I would suggest you to meditate and read some good books about this topic. It will really help you out. Try to tackle the root of your problem, the anxiety, instead of looking for short term relief.

Hi Candice. I am also new here and this is my first post. Welcome to both of us ! You are not alone. I have been suffering with Anxiety for over 20 years and after my 2 kids were born my health anxiety spiked. I live in Canada where health care is supposed to be free, but that brings other problems as well, such as you can only see a specialist if you your family doctor gives you a referral and since my FD knows I am anxious he is very hesitant to do so. He always thinks my symptoms come from my head.

I liked when you mentioned Jesus Christ. I am also a Christian and reading all is miracles in the Bible does help me to calm down a little. We are all on the same boat here and hopefully sharing experiences will make us feel better. All the best.

Hello and welcome to the forum. All of us on this forum suffer from anxiety in one way or another. Members here are helpful and supportive. I am a Christian also and pray often for healing for myself and others.
