Hi I'm a a 13 year old girl and I am somewhat of a hypochondriac and I don't want to worry my life away, I want to live it! I have been worrying about a disorder lately and I am an idler. My family tells me don't have it and I know I don't have it but I just want to stop thinking about
Sometimes this will pass as you learn to deal with life and mature. Other times it grows into an anxiety disorder needing help from doctors. I cannot tell from what you have written where you are with this. My best advice would be to ask mom or dad to make a doctor’s appointment to discuss this with the family doctor or your pediatrician. (I say pediatrician as they see children up through age 16.)

You may have an anxiety disorder-though you are very young at 13 it's not un heard of. Speak to your doctor.
I used to worry a lot and then something terrible happened and I went through a month of severe anxiety, which I never thought I'd recover from.
Catch it early. Check out 'mindfulness' online. It's a buddist philosophy based around mediation. Ensure you desdicate 20 minutes minimum every day to medidating and performing relaxation exercises. This should take away the stress you feel when the going gets tough. If this doesn't work, speak to your doctor and they can refer you to a specialist before the anxiety manifests into something serious.
