Why I am here...
« on: February 12, 2014, 11:33:24 AM »
I truly wish I wasn't. I have been dealing with extreme health anxiety since I was about 14 years old. Throughout the past 12 years I have convinced myself I have had pretty much every kind of cancer imaginable.. and maybe even a couple that don't even exist. I came across this community and am hopeful that having others with similar thoughts and fears to relate to will facilitate my recovery from these fears and obsessions.

I dream of being able to wake up in the morning and live my life without the constant nagging thoughts in the back of my mind. I will get there. I have to hope I will, otherwise, what's the point?

Find the correct section of the forum that suits your condition and create a new topic on it. This is just a welcome section.

Welcome to the board.

You have come to the right place. you might not get too many posts in this thread...

If you go to the homepage of this board and scroll down to Hypochondria (Health Anxiety) you will find a LOT of information and help there.

Try shooting a post in there and you will get some feedback on it.

What's currently troubling you now?
