I've been struggling a bit with health anxiety for the last couple of weeks and right now I just feel really anxious and on edge. I have also found that to keep my mind of things I will just go on my phone for ages which I don't really like doing because it means I don't et anything done. I was wondering if anyone has any tips to stop feeling so anxious (particularly about my health) because I really hate feeling like this.
Thanks in advance!!

I'm sorry to hear this.
Do you have a therapist or anyone you can talk to about how your feeling? If not, I'd try to find someone you feel comfortable talking to. Anxiety is a mental illness.
There are also meds that can be taken for anxiety.
Hope you feel better soon. :hugs:

Maybe try writing down things you can control and things you can't, and then rank things you can by level of significance. Rationalising your anxiety can sometimes ease it a little. Maybe write your feelings down, or talk to a friend or family member you're close with. It's quite normal, just if it is becoming too much, talk to your GP and see what stuff they can recommend: apps, therapy, websites, meds - they can suggest a lot that might help!

thanks for the advice! I'm feeling slightly better now than I was this morning as I did some painting to distract myself which always helps

Good to hear! As you get older and get better at managing things, stuff becomes easier usually! PM me if you want to talk!
