Anxiety and depression with constant body pains

Hi,I'm 15 year old girl who's suffering from anxiety and depression with constant pains for two months now.It all started when i had pneumonia and was hospitalized ,i did recover,but when i got home,I felt extremely different.I felt extreme fear and sadness.I was constantly thinking about my breathing,few days after,my left shoulder and neck really hurts.I was so scared of it and was constantly worried about it.The next few days,my right shoulder hurt too,until my knees started hurting and my back too.I went to my doctor and sent me to physical therapist,they said it's muscke spasms ,the pains decreased a bit,but spasms won't go away,now im also depressed because of constant pains.I have been crying everyday,and at first my parents comforted me,but now they just grew tired of me,my dad even told me he's getting annoyed by me and im such a crybaby which made my depression worse.Idk what to do anymore,my biggest fear is the pain,why am i having constant pains 24/7?Other people with anxiety don't have this.I would rather die than live with these pains forever
Being 15 just sucks! Hormones are going crazy, everything is amplified and yes everything hurts. Lucky you, you're normal.
This will take time to get through but the sooner you start, the sooner you'll feel empowered. You now have 2 choices, allow yourself to keep going down or make a stand and say enough is enough.
Unfortunately at 15 all advice feels hard and useless. It feels easy for people to comment but you feel no one understands or has felt this way.
When you are ready and decide enough is enough try this (yes you'll feel stupid and it will take time but like I said the sooner you start, the sooner you'll feel better ) Every day as soon as you awake say out loud "Today I will feel great, today I am 1 day closer to being better, today I am 1 day closer to being pain free" Take a deep breath and jump out of bed like you've won lotto (even though you still feel like crap). When you brush your teeth, look at yourself in the mirror and say "damn girl today the pain is a little less" then do this every chance you get throughout the day. Always say it out loud so it goes back into your ears as sound and your brain can hear it.
As I said it will take time and you'll probably feel stupid but what have you got to lose? Do it now. Time heals although I know at 15 1 day can feel a year.
