WorryNotes is a personal health anxiety blog exploring the challenges of living with Hypochondria.

“Mommy, look at this!” my two curious young daughters are having a blast exploring the gardens.

I glance over at them and try to smile. I make sure we visit the park and do lots of art projects together. But I’m not really present with them in the way I’d like to be. I’m too worried about the spot on my neck that might be a rare form of melanoma; and then that story I heard makes me wonder if my stomach ache could be colon cancer; and there’s also the pulse I saw in my stomach which the internet said can be an abdominal aneurysm……


overcoming anxiety for my daughters

I realize I had spent so much time scared of what might happen in my future, I was missing out on the very things in life I was desperately trying to hold onto.

I needed to change.  For me, and for them.

Believe in yourself and all that you are. Know that there is something inside of you that is greater than any obstacle.

Hi, I’m Jacqueline Marr. I created the WorryNotes blog as a safe space for discussing some of the unique challenges of living with Health Anxiety.  Struggling with hypochondria can be very isolating.  But you are not alone.  And there is hope.  I invite you to join me as I share the information and ideas I discover for managing my own ‘fret frenzy’ episodes and all things that inspire along this journey to wellness and peace.  

 A little more about my health anxiety story.

I’m not an expert,  just someone who understands.
