Health anxiety

Postby Moll » Wed Jan 15, 2014 4:26 pm

Hi everybody this is my first time on line.
I suffer with health anxiety, this was brought on by work related stress.
I would love to return to work but everytime i get a job i cant get there i am physically unable to go.
My stress levels go through the roof!!!
Does anybody else suffer like this?
I cant even get sick pay because they say i am capable of going to work!!!
I do go out to see friends and shop, i can do this because there is no pressure on me but a lot of the time i am at home where i feel safe.
I would love to hear from others like me.

Hi Moll, welcome to Sane.

I guess I'm kinda like you. I have no formal diagnosis but I am off work with anxiety at the moment and the thought of going back, or even talking about the place, sets my stress levels through the roof. I have anxiety anyway tho and seem at the moment only to be able to do anything when I am with someone I trust - put it this way yesterday I went to walk to dog and had to come home because my anxiety couldn't cope with all the other people walking their dogs on the same path, and they were 100ft in front and behind me so not even close!

Are you seeing anyone for your anxiety or taking any meds?

All the best

You are braver than you think, and stronger than you know.
