If you've been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder. . .edit
What were some of your symptoms? What made you go seek help from a doctor. . .and how do you handle it?
Lately I've been struggling with this stupid fear. . .almost to the point of panic. I'm at the point I am beginning to wonder if there is something more to it then just a regular fear. . .
Thank y'all for your input (& I would love to hear more answers). I haven't had a panic attack really but I do find myself worrying a lot about it. I am terrifed of getting a stomach virus or my kids getting it. I'm also terrifed of food poisioning. I throw out food if it's even close to the best buy date. . .i hate going out to eat anymore. If I read about people being sick or hear people talking about it I get real anxious. .. afraid we will get it. I'm terrified of throwing up (i don't even like to type it out. . .or hear the words)
It's a new issue to be honest. I was a CNA for years and dealt with a lot of sickness and it never bothered me. . now suddenly i'm freaked out by it.
