Leukemia fears
« on: April 03, 2014, 09:38:11 PM »
I am constantly scared that I have leukemia and that I'm going to die from it. I will have to have horrendous chemo and then a bone marrow and then somewhere along the way I will die. Please help me I am so freaked out. Of course I was an idiot and googled a ton. Even tried to see if I could induce bruising easily to see if that was another sign. 
I have a baby and feel that I am going to leave her all alone and that she won't remember me. I am overwhelmed with anxiety today. Have been doing well until the last two days.

I've had chest pain on and off for a few months, tired a lot, dizzy...just general feeling like crap. But mostly the chest pain. Feel like it's either that or lymphoma. I know it's awful but can someone PLEASE give me reassurance? I've tried all my anti anxiety tricks and none of ots working. I feel like there just HAS to be something terrible going on. I keep hearing about all these young people with horrible cancers dying and feel like that's going to be me. Really struggling tonight :(

The triggers are the culprit on an anxious health mind

HA is not easily reassurred or we could just do it ourselves and believe ourselves

Check in with your dr of your concerns, run some blood work is a very good start.

I had leukemia fears a few weeks ago and I literally cannot remember why. It was probably just me freaking out over a random cancer; I probably thought since you hear a lot about kids with leukemia if I had cancer it'd be that.

I'm pretty sure lukemia causes bruising and frequent sickness. I remember freaking out because I had a random bruise or because I had an infection. Chest pain, fatigue, and dizziness are all anxiety symptoms as well.

So much overlapping of benign things, anxiety, and illnesses.  No wonder we overthink.

Dr. Google reminds us everything is serious.

And yes the media adds to telling us anything wrong is possible.  The HA minds then says.....yep likely me.

   Anxiety does that.  It was so hard for me to go to drs. too.  Still is.  But I had to push myself.

We are all scared together. I don't believe you have leukemia. I just don't.

Sometimes, ***** it, in this irrational HA world you just need somebody to not believe the fear. And I don't believe you have leukemia!!!!

thank you i needed to hear that!!  I just can't get it out of my head and don't want to believe that any of my symptoms are psychological because I am a normal rational human being (ha!).  I like to think that I don't get anxious until I have a symptom and then that's when the anxiety starts.  ugh.....rough day today as well. google is truly evil and i've been bad in that regard--looked all kinds of things up.  its so nice to know that i'm not alone.
