My name is Jim and I am a 26 year old male from the good ol USA. I have been suffering from health anxiety for just about 2 years now. My mother passed away from Cancer two years ago, and ever since her death I have felt that every single ailment is a sign of something much worse. I think about how I was just 4 years ago, where little things did not bother me, and how I wish I could be like that again. I am young, but spend a lot of my day worrying about my health and continually convincing myself I have the big C. Its been a rough two years to say the least, and I look forward to talking with you all. I really believe this will be beneficial to me and my overall well being. I look forward to sharing my stories/questions with you all and hearing all of yours.
As I mentioned earlier, my health anxiety is predominately related to Cancer. Since two years ago I felt I had: kidney cancer, bladder cancer, skin cancer, and some sort of lymph node issue in my neck. I am also overweight. I really have packed on the pounds since my health anxiety arose. Furthermore, I suffer form kidney stones (not fun!). Anyways, my newest concerns at the moment are skipping heart beats, and a worrisome lymphnode in my groin region. Thanks for reading this, and I really look forward to listening and talking to you all!
