Hello, I'd like to help you with your problem.
Whenever you worry about your own health, it can be a way to try to control circumstances that feel out of control. Worrying makes you feel as if you are doing something rather that just accepting the situation is out of your control. It also helps to suppress other negative emotions and gives you something to focus on instead. When you try to stop worrying, the negative emotions come back, making you feel worse.
Worrying about your health is a way to try to control the uncontrollable. Most people find it easy to worry about their health because it is something most people cannot control. You can do all the right things and still get sick. Therefore, fear of getting sick is common.
In order to deal with your anxiety and worry, you can use some of these strategies:
One, create a time of the day when you worry. Make it a time when you are not busy with other things. First thing in the morning works for many people because this is the time when worry seems the most intense, before we have had a chance to feel in control of our day. Let yourself worry for a certain amount of time then let go.
Two, when letting go of worry, it helps to tell yourself that you already worried about the situation. Write it down, verbally tell yourself or just say it over and over in your mind. You can reinforce the idea of letting go that way.
Three, write down what you are worried about. By putting it on paper, you can express it and get it out of your mind. Return to it during your worry time to review it.
Four, talk to friends, family or a therapist to help you express your worry. Talking to others and bringing out your feelings can help you see that sharing reduces your fear. And the reassurance of others can help as well.
Practice relaxing. The more you practice, the easier it will be to get yourself to calm down if you do worry. Here is a guide to help you practice:
Also try exercise. It helps to increase your endorphins which are "feel good" brain chemicals. This can help you counteract the effects of worry and also helps you relax when you need to. And it is a positive step to improve your health as well.
