"What we think about, we bring about." This is especially true for hypochondriacs like me, but to what degree? If you could tell me that I can create this tingling by thinking about tingling, or cause muscle twitching by stressing about muscle twitching, it'd be a huge relief. I worry though, a lot of non-hypochondriacs say that stress can't cause these things. That only certain things can be caused by stress and only to certain degrees.
So, where is the line drawn? If I think about my eyes hurting, I can make them hurt. Or did they always hurt and now I'm just noticing it? That's the type of question in posing.
Looking for lots of opinions on this thread so please share your opinion.
