Hey there. I am constantly panicked about illness and death. My fears revolve around my children being sick, my children dying, me being sick and how it would affect my kids, my husband being sick... etc I begin therapy this week so I am really looking forward to working on coping with this... I am always worried, constantly asking my kids if they feel ok, checking their temps... it is so frustrating being afraid instead of enjoying my life with them.

Oh my yes. I have that exact problem 24/7. It is like a never ending nightmare. I think that I have died now 20-30 times from one thing or another. I can't read things in the news or look things up online without thinking that I just might develop the same thing. My family is tired of hearing about my worries. When I do get sick or have an issue no one believes me. As soon as I find out that I don't have something; immediately I go right into worrying about having something else. I will call the doctor's office to get reassurance that I don't have a terrible illness. I have already been kicked out of one practice, because they said that they just don't have time for my irrational fears. It's a nightmare!!! What have you done to try to get past this?

Yes i do. I keep thinking i am,having a heart or i will have stroke .especially most of my family and loved ones died of heart attack. Everytime i feel something even just a small tingling on my nerves i panicked thinking i am having a heart attack or stroke. I hate this feeling.i feel like its taking over my life. The constant worry and overthinking is killing me .

Yes! All the time. I feel like I could put myself into debt the way I keep going back to the doctor. I just had an MRI and it was perfect and I almost didn't believe them. But now I think I am realizing behavioral health is the better route to go now knowing my health (supposedly) is fine.

Hypochondria is a fear of undiagnosed but severe disease. I think you could do therapy for this but I'm not sure, I hope you can get help and feel better soon.
