I Need To Control My Anxiety

Anxiety can be so harmful. Try to control it! 136 People

    I have anxiety about my health.

    I'm always afraid of my heart stopping before I go to bed and I sometimes even fear choking on my food while I'm eating, which leads to mini panic attacks if I swallow something "too big". Any one else feel this way and if so, how have you coped?
