Health Anxiety!! How can I get past this???
Hi All. I'm a little embarrased to even admit this to anyone but I'm at my ends wit! I suffer from Health Anxiety. Every little thing I find thats unusual is Cancer of some kind or something deadly. It consumes me. I can't think of anything else. Anytime I have been scared enough to have it checked out, it always turns out to be nothing. The hard part for me is...I'm afraid whatever it is is deadly but I'm also afraid to find out! I hate doctors or even going to a doctors office. When my child has to go for a Well-Child visit, I get so nervous my husband has to come with me. How can I get past this and be able to tell myself when I find something that it's nothing to worry about? Has anyone else gone thru this or is going thru this? I want to be happy in my life but these thoughts are always there.
