Previously, the term hypochondria was used, this is when you worry about trifles, you feel that you are sick, but in fact nothing serious happens to you.

Although you may be talking about a slightly different condition, when annoying what is happening around, but this is also a mental illness, if every little thing seems to be a serious problem, then you probably need to go to a psychologist.

Yes, there is. And there is even a book on this topic - "Close to the Heart". She is thin, but she puts everything on the shelves. It's about hypersensitivity and hypersensitive people.
