I have been experiencing anxiety and panic about my health, catastrophic thinking. I can’t seem to stop ruminating.

 I can’t seem to stop ruminating. Your anxiety/panic CD has been helpful. I’m wondering if you could recommend others that would help me get out of the catastrophic, ruminating thinking.
