@psychopika - once you are pregnant you will have so many other things on your mind, then at the end a little baby to bring REAL joy to your life. You won't have time to concentrate on bad health things. I know if I am occupied with some interest I am really good, but times like now when I have NOTHING going on in my life I take up that brain space with worry of every disease in the book.
That's what I hope (and rather trust) it will happen - I think having to take care of someone else who depends on me will make me more clear-headed and less self-obsessed. Because I admit, being a hypochondriac makes me a very selfish, self-centred person and I'm tired of being that. And yes, it's true, I often check myself inside out for diseases when I'm bored and have nothing to do with my time or refuse to do anything else and prefer to dwell on my dark thoughts.
