Did that COVID-19 headline that you just stumbled upon convince you that you are suddenly very short of breath and feeling like you just spiked a fever? We've gotten a few questions on the topic of health anxiety and hypochondria, such as: 

  • What exactly is hypochondria and how “normal” is it?
  • What’s considered obsessive symptom checking and what’s not?
  • What if you live with someone who has recently become a full-blown hypochondriac?

Licensed Clinical Psychologist Dr. Barr is back this week with Erica to answer these questions and more. Join us as we discuss how to navigate through this fearful time.
