I wanted to paste in a post from an old blog. I posted it 8 months ago.
For context purposes I should tell you I was, like I am now, sitting up in the middle of the night & worrying intensely about nothing. For 9 months after the murder of my Uncle I suffered terribly with Health Anxiety and Generalised Anxiety Disorder. GAD has been present in my life for as long as I can remember. I’ve always been just a little bit too worried about the smallest things, but this particular period of Health Anxiety was literally taking over my life for the 9 months it took it’s strongest hold. I made 2 videos about this on my YouTube channel if you’d like to check them out.
At the moment I’m feeling very ‘generally’ anxious, and writing to help others really helps shift my focus. I hope this helps at least one person realise they aren’t alone.
