Re: Am I suffering from Anxiety?

Hi Cas,
Welcome to the club - you sound just like me. Im primarily a health anxiety sufferer, with a bit of General and some odd phobias thrown in!
Crap isnt it.
I have NOTHING to complain about and yet I cant even enjoy a beautifull sunrise without thinking "This life and this world are so wonderful - isnt it such a pity that it will probably end for me very soon...".
My GP calls it ruminating on morbid thoughts.
Have you talked to your GP? They might recommend medication or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. Personally I recommend CBT.
I also did an awful lot of drugs in my 20s, but I remember being like this in my teens (especially the health anxiety stuff).
I dont have any religious faith either. It must be a wonderful comfort but I guess its just not in me. I too came to the conclusion at age 6 that when youre dead youre dead and nothing I have seen or learnt since has been able to convince me otherwise.
Misrable bunch of b*****ds arent we?!!
I guess the only solution is to live this life with as much joy as possible, try not to dwell on the what ifs, and take each day as it comes.
Best of luck to you
