Discussion of Phobias. A phobia is a persistent, irrational fear of a specific object (spiders, snakes, etc) or situation (crowds, open spaces, etc). Accompanying this fear is a strong desire to avoid the object or situation.
They just don't understand my health anxiety. They also don,t social distance which makes it worse if i have to spend time indoors with them during the holidays. They are now trying to guilt me because i have not visited my sister who has alzheimer's. She does not truly understand the virus. It breaks my heart. I want to be there so bad but they do not take this virus seriously they have friends come in the house my niece flew in from out of state to spend time with them which i think was careless. My other niece brings the kids over to my sisters house who go to school and are around a lot of people then they tell me its clean there. I just don't get why they don't understand my worry. I worry about there health also.
This is making me very depressed. I don't know where to turn or what to do. I feel like they will press me more and more as the holidays get closer. They think my sister will get better or something if i see her which she will not. I told them in a few months when the vaccine is out i will be there. I feel they are all mad at me. My fear of Covid is so strong i just stay home and away from people. my depression is getting worse day by day i appreciate the responses. Am i wrong on trying to stay safe and should i let them guilt me ? Thank you all for your responses I also been having severe muscle tightness and spasms due to my anxiety i just hope my mind just does not start telling me it's something else soon . I also have recurring dreams that i am in a store and then realize i don't have a mask on and wake up with severe anxiety. This is just horrible
I really hope that tingling is an anxiety symptom or I have problems. I think I’ve had just about every body part tingle at some point. It’s weird because I have felt that tingle in the groin and it seems to be one sided sometimes so of course then my anxiety makes my whole side tingle and I assume it’s a stroke (which I know it isn’t but I always have to remind myself)
My scalp was the first thing I noticed tingle probably 15 years ago, sometimes it’s my legs and groin usually I notice all these things when I am laying down. I hope my symptoms at least make you feel not alone!
Here's a new one for you. For the past 3 days I have woke up with a weird feeling like the inside of my cheek is swollen, but it isn't. It even carries up into the upper gumline but all is normal. I do have TMJ and have been wearing a nightguard that is defective and rubs my tongue, but I am having that replaced as soon as I have a root canal (on the opposite side lower). I have been on an antibiotic for about 5 days and have taken it before with no issues. I continue to have a tongue twitch on the same side as the odd feeling and thats been going on now about 4 months. I have not been having anxiety severely at all. Could it be that I sleep on that side alot and maybe its related to TMJ or the defective guard? I am going to the dentist tomorrow for the root canal, but I am pretty sure he will say he has never heard of that.
Hey guys, so today has been a hard day. I feel more weakness in my legs and I’m spiriling out of control again. I keep checking my legs and keep seeing the right one super thin compared to the other one. I feel like this is the worst I’ve been my whole life. I have so much fear and worry. My legs keep shaking but I know that it is probably the fear and the anxiety, I just can’t think logically right now.
