Hello friends.
I've been pondering when and how my health anxiety started.
Today I was really just deep in thought and timelines I can remember that stuck out and test I had.

2009 thought I had hiv.
Got tested and nothing.
2012 thought I had hiv or some other std from years ago when single
Tested and nothing.
2019 thought I had bladder cancer and
Battery of tests nothing.
From 2013-2018 I was gambling a lot and could hide how I was feeling during these times.
I believe Health Anxiety is a manifestation of common fears that is out of our hands.
I'm not sure if I still have health anxiety so much but I do accept I worry.

After thinking I was dying then not actually dying so many times I think I’ve beaten the “health anxiety” thing for the most part. I would have died by now if these things I thought were true were actually true lol.

Worry, panic, impending doom and paranoia are where it’s at in my anxiety world lol RIP my sanity

It's interesting that you talk about "when it started". I always try to figure out the "why it started". No answers for me yet. But I hope your timeline helps you heal in some way. Maybe I'll try to do the same and I'll get my answer too.
