Dear Friends,

In the last 8 months I have been through a lot in my life. I'm a 25YR Profressional male from Australia. Over the last 8 months I have experienced Anxiety and Panic attacks which I admit I never thought to be a real thing.

How wrong I was...

September 2003:

I was arrested by the police over a drug related matter. This was the start of my Anxiety. At this stage it was fairly mild and not to troublesome.

December 2003:

My Girlfriend who I was extremely close with broke up with me due to a lot of factors. She officially left me in January. I accepted this quiet well.

Febuary 2004:

I went into hospital for an extreme panic attack which was caused by smoking Crystal meth. Since this time I have not used recreational drugs, however previous to this I was an Ecstasy and Amphetamine user on a regular basis - Weekends only.

Since this time I my anxiety and panic attacks have been much worse. Recently I feel they have subsided largely but now I am faced with a new dilema.

I've become a worrier. I worry about things that shoulden't even bother me. Basically, I worry about my health a lot. I'm so scared of being sick. I don't know what has bought this on but I believe it is related to the hospital incident which made me feel as though I was near death.

Now I am so scared of being sick, or having some terminal illness.

About 6 weeks ago I had unprotected sex with a female. Now I am scared to death and my anxiety has JUMPED about 1000x. Im a nervous wreck. I went to the doctors on the weekend and had a full STD/HIV test and I'm scared to death of the results. I'm so so scared and it's causing me to freak out so much.

Since having Anxiety I feel as though I've lost a lot if weight. Is weight loss normal with Anxiety?

Can anyone share there anxiety experience with me? I feel so lost and alone right now. I wish I had someone I could talk to about this.

I've seen the doctor and he has prescribed me some valium to keep me calm for the next week as I await my test results.

Stupidly I keep researching on the Internet such things as HIV, Etc and It seems like I have symptoms, but now I don't know if I'm simple making the Symptoms up myself.

Anyone who could offer me some advice, friendly words, or guidance, I woudl very much appreciate your response.

Thank you.
Hi Shal,

I wish I could give you a big hug! I am sorry about all you have gone through. Before you go crazy, let me comfort you a little. Weight loss is normal with anxiety. I have lost 15lbs this year with it. The other thing you need to do is stop looking up symptoms on the computer. I too did this in the beginning, and I was convinced I had a brain tumor. if it will make you feel better, take a bloodtest, and have them test for all the norm. You will have to request HIV. I know I don't know you, but do you honestly think you have that?
Anxiety has so many symptoms that are soooo physical. It comes in so many forms. Try to calm down until you get your results.I will say little prayer for you. Let me know what happens, and I am always here to talk. Hang in there. We are all in the same boat.
