Looking for reassurance. Sometimes I will calculate odds like "1 out of 10000 get X so my odds are ___." It'd compulsive behavior.

My sister had non-hodgkin's lymphoma in October 2000 diagnosis.  She was given a 10% chance of living. She is the mother of a 10 1/2 yr old now. She continues to see her oncologist as required but she is doing well .

I understand.....I've had a blood clot fear for the past month and half. I started reading survivor stories and memorials because I was trying to prove to myself that I am different and don't have the same symptoms. I then read a story about someone with no risk factors or similar pain and I get sucked into a hole of worry and fear
