so ive had anxiety/depression for about 8 years now. im only 25, healthy (to the best of my knowledge and according to every health test ive had, and ive had a lot) but i still have a LOT of health anxiety. i have been a hypochondriac consistently for about 8 years as well, it's due to the physical symtoms of anxiety. when i first started having panic attacks, i didnt know what they were and i convinced myself there was something physically wrong with me. even though my doctors couldn't find anything physically wrong with me i was still convinced there WAS something wrong.

i feel like my anxiety comes and goes, for days/weeks i'll be totally fine, clear headed, "normal" (if that's actually possible), and just in a healthy state of mind. it's good times like these that i'll tell myself that it's just anxiety and i just need to relax. i almost laugh at myself for being so stupid to think it was something more than anxiety.

it's the bad times like now that my anxiety is soooo bad, i actually feel like i am going crazy. people use that term "going crazy" all too loosely. but now i actually feel like i'm going crazy. i sit there on my couch and get a really scared feeling of anxiety and then all of a sudden a thought will pop into my head that says "youre going crazy" and i'll feel crazy! does anyone else get this feeling? please i really hope someone else feels this. it's the worst part of my anxiety. i can take heart palpitations and dizziness any day but the second i start to feel like im going crazy, i lose it. i have a very bad fear that my anxiety will completely take over one day and i will in fact go crazy.

i am a sane and educated human being. for all of my life i have been totally "normal" now, these past 8 years have really taken a toll on me. i am only 25 and i feel like i lead the life of a 80 year old. i dont want to go out, i just want to stay in a sleep. it's horrible.

anyone relate to this?
