Let's see I'm 17 and know my HA comes from post traumatic due to fact of having two open heart surgeries as a kid. I've had HA for a year so far and what I've come across are
- brain tumor (BIGGEST FEAR)
- brain cancer
- testicular cancer
- heart attack

I'm seriously thinking about getting help soon.

Infective endocarditis
Dementia
Bipolar disorder
Heart attack
Abdominal aortic aneurysm

I've been doing better the past few days but I think what drives the thoughts is the obsessive nature. When you think about something all the time, you begin to fear it or believe it. I am not sure if I am afraid of the thoughts or the actual disorders more, but I've been very forgetful lately and its kind of bugging me. I haven't even been able to concentrate on my university assignments or classes, despite being in a slightly "better" mood.

Over the last year or so I've convinced myself I've had these.

Brain tumor
Heart attack
Stroke
Ovarian cancer
MS
Vertigo
Brain hemorrhage
Kidney failure
Diabetes
Jaw cancer
UTI

Safe to say that I don't have any of these. But being caught up in the moment of thinking I have these diseases are the absolute worst. As I'm sure all of you understand. And I have to admit about a week afterwards of thinking I have these I do tend to feel like such a fool for even thinking I had them. I just really hate the intense fear, panic, and anxiety they bring in that moment where all logical thinking goes out the window.  :spineyes:

Most of them I think I still have them, lol.

When I had bad post partum depression and anxiety two years ago, over the course of three months I thought I had:

Ms
Sjogrens Syndrome
Rheumatoid Arthritis
Colon Cancer
Brain Tumor

Since I thought I was 'all better' a few months ago and went off Celexa, it's been slowly gaining momentum:

Losing my vision
Ear problems
Heart attack/disease
Right now I'm back on Sjögren's Syndrome because of dry mouth (I don't think I ever really got over that one either from last time)
