Jen,

Sometimes I go weeks and weeks without thinking I have a disease. And, when those thoughts crop up, I use my newly found rational thinking skills to assure myself that I am not sick.

I have conquered this hypochondria through therapy alone. I'm sure medication is also helpful in dealing with these anxieties, but once the medication is stopped, I believe the same old anxiety creeps back in. CBT has helped me greatly in dealing with my anxiety and depression, and there are no side effects!

I encourage you to give it another try. It has however taken me 2 years to get to this state of mind, whereas I'm sure my recovery would have been much faster had I taken medication. But I have something now which will last me a lifetime, and that is truly invaluable.
