"Health Anxiety" Anyone?

I more or less got over my social anxiety with therapy, and used the same cognitive "tools" with my obsessive-compulsive issues. But they don't work for this and its getting out of hand: I have an exam tomorrow and I haven't gotten any productive study done because I can't concentrate. The other day I was worrying so much about a chronic problem (that I've had for years!) that I almost cried during a lecture and came home early. And I'm driving my partner mad. And resenting him because he doesn't "care."

Ugh, I swear anxiety can't be cured, it just morphs into a different form. It's like whack-a-mole. How do I think myself out of this?
