Health Anxiety

Anyone new to MAV might think about reading a book about Health Anxiety. It can be a very real problem when you have a nasty chronic condition like this. I definitely had it for the first few months. My therapist recommended this book. I read it cover to cover. It was very useful in understanding one’s psychological response to illness and how we sometimes exacerbate things:

Great suggestion!! when the symptoms die down, my anxiety dissipates too. But management strategies for when the problem flares is a good idea:)
