My situation
« on: February 02, 2014, 02:09:59 PM »
I just wanted to see how many of you deal with what I deal with. I have a terrible fear of anything related to going to the doctors. Where many of you want to go when you have a symptom, I am the opposite...I fear going. The whole idea of going to the doctors office or the er is terrible for me. It is funny back in 07 I had a nearly life threatning weightlifting accident, and I joked with the nurses that this what a good way to get over my phobia, but it didn't... :spineyes: Also, I am just starting to feel a little better from being sick with the typical cold/flu deal...I have noticed I can not relax when I am sick. I am constantly feeling my head to see if I have a fever, constantly worrying about how I feel, etc...Actually a new one came about, i happened to notice my pulse was beating higha couple nights ago while not feeling well, and i freaked out, believe it or not google was a good thing because it did show that your pulse can beat high when sick.

Does any of this sound familiar or ring bell for you in the anxiety department?

Absolutely!  I won't go to a doctor unless something were SO bad I couldn't take it (pain, etc) or if it were going on WAY WAY too long (I only went 2 times in my life for something like that - and both times NOTHING was wrong and from that day on my symptom disappeared.)
I always think, "If I don't go then there's nothing wrong, however if I DO go then they'll FIND something!"  So that's what scares me.  It's ridiculous and makes no sense, but do us HA sufferers ever make sense?   ::)

You should see how many times I take my temperature at times - and I'm not sick!  I may have a chill and think, "Oh, it may be a fever!"  (although I feel FINE) - then of course it's the cancers, and various tumors and everything else on top of it.

Out of about 1,000 googles, it helped me about 2 times and sent me over edge 998 times...

Thank you for the answer...I didn't even take my temp, I was worried I would take it and it would be 105 or something and I would have to go to hospital...but no matter how many times I tell myself "if you had that severe of a temp you would know" doesn't work...and I keep googling "fevers are good for you" and "fevers help you heal" to try to help how im feeling...haha
