to think that I'm really ill and need a hand hold/reassurance

I've got a cold at the moment and am all bunged up. I am feeling sick and dizzy and am getting myself in a right state thinking I'm going to end up having a heart attack. I do suffer from stress and health anxiety (can you tell!) and have horrible aches in my neck and symptoms that my GP assures me are all anxiety but it doesn't make any difference. I've not seen the GP today, not for months.
It's just a cold right?

Yes, it's just a cold.

You'll be fine. I promise.

Two family members have come down with a rotten cold today. They are doing on holiday tomorrow and feel awful.

Colds can make you feel really ill but they are not serious unless there are other factors which you don't have ( judging from your OP).

Get well soon.

I have a cold too. It's a rotten head cold thing that has travelled down to my chest. I sound like I smoke 40 a day, have hurt my back sneezing and crossing my legs so I don't pee and I have a croupy cough.

I am having a very hot curry later and half a bottle of wine. I won't die. Ds who is only 3 is just recovering from it so the prognosis is good.

It just feels awful at the time. Ds and I have both had a lovely long nap this afternoon and are watching octanaughts now and sniffing and coughing in sync.

Do you have wine? Will funds stretch to a nice takeaway?

I should have said, posted in AIBU for traffic!
I do have wine and yes, I think a takeaway is in order.

You are sorted then! Plenty of spice and garlic to ward the evil bugs away and wine to dull your senses and you will be fine. Jobs a goodun!

*I hope you feel better very soon!
