Had to put my foot down
« on: May 08, 2014, 11:29:36 AM »
My mom has health anxiety. Recently she went to the ER in an ambulance because she thought she had a stroke AGAIN. Her health anxiety also extends to her pets. I've taken her dog to the vet numerous times because she thought something was wrong with her. Once the vet bill was over 500 dollars. She called me today and asked me to take her dog to the vet, and I told her I'm not going to take her dog to the vet everytime she has a tummy ache, and she was furious.

How do you put your foot down to someone that has health anxiety when you know their fears are baseless???
