Well, I'll just go within the past year - going back to my teen years would shut down this website due to too much writing  B-;
So within the year:   colon cancer; tonsil cancer; ovarian cancer; ALS; MS; tumor on the spine; brain tumor (several of them); pilomotor seizure disorder; heart attack...  when I was younger I used to comfort myself with "I'm too young for that!" - now I'm NOT TOO YOUNG so I am freaking out more than ever over things!   :dazed:

Wow! Reading through these is eye opening. I actually feel rather lucky I have never heard of some of these conditions (and I am nooot looking them up lol).

In some ways I wish I could have something so ridiculous as to be obviously HA although I know that it doesn't work like that. I actually caught myself thinking semi-seriously about vCJD once as I am the right age and from the right country. I am glad I was able to rubbish that one easily!

Knowing that you can't be some cute blonde with big boobs is sooo dissapointing  :traurig001:

Thanks again btw, battling this s**t with humor is good thing since we are irrational as hell.

You name it! I've diagnosed myself with MS, leukemia, congenital heart defect, various heart arrhythmias, pneumonia, and I'm sure there are more that are harder to remember since I'm not in the thick of health anxiety anymore. I have a Master's degree in Nursing and sometimes I think it wasn't the best life plan because I know too much! But, with a lot of work these health issues are just not a big concern of mine anymore, sometimes a fear will pop up here and there or if I actually get sick my brain wants to jump to the worst case scenario, like a cold progressing to pneumonia, but all in all it gets better with the proper guidance and support..oh and a lots of practice.

The ones i was certain off: Brain tumour, heart attack, lymphoma, lung cancer and leukemia

Ones that crossed my mind: kidney infection, diabetes, skin cancer and chronic fatigue syndrome

P.S.

HIV, colon cancer, pancreatic cancer, gall bladder, stomach cancer, kidney disease, leukemia, lymphoma, ALS, MS and brain tumor. All within the last two years!  Wow, now that I actually look at everthing at once, I'd say I have a little bit of health anxiety!  I never had health anxiety until I had kids.

My HA startEd around 7 years old where I feared my heart would just stop. While laying in bed I would feel my heart beat. If it was slow I would get out of bed and jump up and down to make it beat faster. Since then ( mow 26) its been an extreme fear of cancer. Everything from skin, brain, cervical, breast, lymphoma, pancreatic, liver mets, and my most current and most crippling is colon. My colon cancer fear has been going on for a year. It has consumed me almost daily since last feb. I feel it is rueing my life. 
I have also had intense HIV anxiety even though I am extremely low risk and I have had heart fears. I used to get bad recurrent heart flutters.

Paget's Disease, Breast Cancer, Lymphoma, HIV/AIDs, Heart problems(attack), recently tetanus but found out that I did have my booster at the end of 2006 so I should be fine

A health issue/disease that I am currently worried about is Melanoma or skin cancer. :(
