    hi

    Hi im new here so just thought I would introduce myself.Im 28 and ive suffered with health anxiety for about 9 years now.Its really really doing my head in.It started when I noticed blood on the toilet paper after a bowel movement. I went to the doctors she had a look and diagnosed me with a tear. I was not convinced though and I thought that I had bowel cancer I was that worried that I lost three stone in weight in a month and I was constantly crying and couldnt go out. The doctor referred me to see a counsellor and after two years of this i finally realised it was nothing serious.Then my anxiety started up again and I thought that I had skin cancer I was convinced that a mole I have got was changing shape and was bleeding, again I went to the doctor, she had a look and confirmed it was nothing.Then about three years ago I started getting pains in my chest and I was and still think that im going to have a heart attack at any moment ive been to the doctors had an ECG an blood tests and again the results have all been normal.I have just had enough of this illness now as its affecting my life with my kids and husband.I really am sick of feeling like this. I just want my life back where I feel happy and not worried about my health

    Hey, Marty!

    Yep, hypochondria is in the symptom list. Learning to become more secure in yourself will make all the difference.
