This piece is a personal piece on my struggle with severe health anxiety, otherwise known as hypochondria. It details the state of my mind, thoughts and feelings when I’m stuck in a rut of the anxiety and cannot get my head to think straight. It’s important, because many people brush this type of anxiety off as nothing real or nothing big, when in fact, my days are a struggle of worry and fear that there’s something wrong. The underlying presence of something I can’t actually see, but I can convince myself I’m feeling.
