paranoia may destroy you

So, if these are the signs for women for heart attacks how can you tell if it's not major depression or life events (like buying a house) that are impacting you? IE, if I have little twinges in my chest, (left side, not center of the chest), should I go to the doctor? Oh, and my father, grandfather, first cousin all died of heart attacks.

Heather, I blame this paranoia on you. Making me think about heart attacks and death. I wrote to my doctor friend and asked. We'll see.

OK, my psychiatrist called back and her diagnosis is simple anxiety. I'll stop worrying and get a full physical soon.

Congrats on the house! And I'm so with you on the paranoia thing. It's gotten to the point where I ignore most "symptoms" because every little twinge starts me thinking I've got some disease or medical problem. Probably not a good place to be. :)

My way of dealing with it is to get paranoid about stuff that could never happen. I don't worry about my health or burglars or anything - I get paranoid about zombie invasions or a portal to another dimension under my bathtub or elves living in the walls. Those are the things you should be paranoid about.

me? now what did i do?

deep breath, you can do it. just don't look at the big picture for a bit. focus on smaller more manageable details for now.

Check your e mail, and stop feeling so anxietious. You'll do fine. I'm not paranoid at all.
