Sometimes you just have to laugh!

As I started to heal from the anxiety or at the time it might have been coping, I became very sensitive within my body. It seemed like every little twitch could be something really bad. That is the time of my life that I became obsessed with looking up illnesses on the Internet.

One day I was having problems with my left arm. There was a dull pain on my forearm. I was wondering what was wrong with it, I was sure it was not a good sign. Later I was starting to really inspect my arm looking for something terrible. Then I spotted was a long hair that had landed on my arm and was held snug against my arm. I pulled it off & then pain was gone. All I could do was laugh.

How could something so small cause such pain? I think as we become increasingly aware of everything around us and dealing with such high stress & anxiety, anything can really throw us off.

Do you have a funny story about being hypersensitive? I would love to hear it. I have posted a message in the forum, come add your story.

Take a deep breath and know you will be OK. And please stay away form the Internet doctor, all he has is bad news.

Wishing you peaceful thoughts today,
