What sickness DON'T you fear
« on: March 13, 2014, 09:47:36 AM »
OK, what is one sickness/disease you NEVER worry about that others with HA seem to worry about a lot.  For me it's my heart.
And is it because you have no symptoms of that disease or is it because you figure it's not that big of a deal?

I don't worry about heart related issues.

(To HA : No it doesn't mean that you should now start scr*wing with my heart  :P)

I don't fear cancer, probably because it's not a definite death sentence and it doesn't kill you right away. I've known a good number of people who have beat it so it really doesn't scare me.

If it's not fatal and doesn't change how I live, I don't worry about it.

Never worry about MS or any other neurological disease for that matter. Intuitively i just know i will never get it.

MS, rabies, and most cancers. My fears are mostly of things that can take you out in an instant.

I don't fear things like MS, heart issues, or rabies. My main fear is cancer.

I never think about MS or ALS.  I'm not really sure what ALS even is and I think it's better that way. ;)

I don't MS, ALS or any of the neurological stuff.  I've never thought about rabies, another common theme here. 

My biggest fear is always cancer.

Interesting how we're all different.

One that I don't fear that I see on this forum a lot is ALS.  I had an MS scare awhile back but that went away after a few days.  Caner is my BIG fear though.

Cancer isn't a big fear for me, at least no more than the general population.  I'm a cardiophobe!   :traurig001:  :yes: :action-smiley-065:

MOST anxiety happens at the subconscious level.  JUST because you don't feel consciously anxious or had a day or two of calm doesn't mean your mind & body are relaxed.  It can take months of reduced anxiety before a body goes back to a more non-reactive state.  - AnxietyZone member Sixpack

Anything that can't cause sudden death or late stage cancer. I would like a little time if I were to pass
