    My take on this is that it's just a dream. Hang in there. I know it's tough.

    Thank you, yes i think i need to have a talk with my therapist about accepting my symptoms instead of wishing them away.

    If you're having trouble sleeping, that can contribute to the body feeling generally run down. No doubt about that. Having anxiety, it's also quite possible that you're simply hyperaware of your heartbeat - a classic symptom of anxiety. I get this from time to time, and I do what I can to ignore it. Eventually, I get over it, and it doesn't cause any problems.

    Don't beat yourself up. You love your kids and want them to be happy and healthy, that's why we worry about them so much. Mine are now 26 and 20 and I think back to all the crazy things I worried about. The sad thing is bad things do happen and I think those of us with HA want to be so proactive that we derail our own happiness. It's so easy for me to say all this, but I live in constant worry. Wish I could take my own advice!

    I have twitches also but for some reason like Leah, I can let that go pretty easily. I worry about everything. Right now I'm focused on heart rate and eye floaters🙁

    @Leah1976 I'm sorry you are going through this. I've done the same with my kids when they were small. Always looking for something. Like you, I've bounced from one disease to another with myself and the kids. Please know your daughter is fine and you will get through this tough time. I feel health anxiety has ruined enjoyment in my life and feel like I was so worried all these years that I didn't enjoy the little things. It's a miserable situation but you are not alone.

    Thank you so much for your kind words... I am trying to calm myself down but it's hard... i am very vigilant to any "symptom"... OMG how did I go last week from thinking I had stomach cancer, to then thinking my brother has lymphoma (cause he has back pain), to now my daughter having some serious disease?????? I can't live like this anymore.... HA is ruining my life....

    Yes, in anxiety the fear consumes us. It comes at us in all kinds of shapes and forms. We develop phobias (smelling the breath and being obsessive about it, not being able to stop). It is very common to do such things. Anxiety comes with bouts of OCD/phobias for so many of us. Rest assured you will get through this. When we are so uncomfortable and scared of course we think we are going crazy/losing it. You are not alone. Nothing is wrong with your daughter or her breath but deep inside you already know that. Try to listen to a meditation video or music every time you get the urge to check her. Once your medicine kicks in things will go more smoothly.

    Just wanted to let you know I was thinking about you and praying for you. Has this month been any easier? How is your reading going? Enjoying any good books? I used to play Candy Crush. Now I am challenging myself to Word Cookies, Word Connect, and Pet Catcher. Please continue to keep in touch and let us know how you are doing. Lots of Hugs!
