I think I may have posted here once or twice a few years ago.
I'm Tina, 33 years old. Never had anxiety issues until after I had my daughter who is 4 now. Both my sisters and grandmother have anxiety so I guess I was destined to get it. I hate it.
My anxiety is mostly about health. I had a son who was disabled, who died right during the height of all my anxiety, which did not help. At first I thought I would die and no one would take care of him so I'd google to see what my pains meant. Convince myself I had cancer and so on...
It did eventually become manageable.
Now for the last 6 months I have had shortness of breath and I can't tell if its anxiety related or because I'm just not in good shape. I went to the drs and she is sending me for an echocardiogram and even though she says she doesn't think it will show anything, I will be convinced I have heart problems.
Its nice to find a board where other people can relate. No one I know gets how crippling anxiety can be.
