The problem with comparing anxiety to a cold is that a cold simply has to run its course. Anxiety, unfortunately, requires a lot of work on our part to get to a point where we can live functionally.

One thing that health anxiety does for me is make me extremely selfish, admittingly worrying about myself more then loved ones.
I was just thinking the same thing today. My fear is stronger than my love for my family. My 20 year old daughter brought up a health thing yesterday and I went into panic mode. I can’t be there for my family because I’m frozen with fear. Makes me cry and wish I wasn’t around. Selfish I know.
