Saying hello..is there someone like me out there
« on: May 19, 2014, 01:01:40 AM »
Hi everyone
Im new to this forum.  I had been diagnosed with GAD in 98.   I have had it in check since then with no meds.  However after loosing some people to different cancers in my life, I'm now freaking out that I have it.  I've had some stomach issues, and my biopsy was negative, but I'm convinced it was wrong.  I've had all kinds of test done and they all come back fine.  Still that doesn't stop me from worrying.  Today wasn't a good day.  I have cried all day thinking I'm sick and may die.  Is there anyone out there who can relate.

Hey Mabdancer,
Go read the hypochondria board. A substantial percentage of people there think they are dying from cancer despite negative test results. You don't have cancer, but you do have a mental illness. It sucks, but it's treatable, and this particular challenge your facing right now is temporary. I'm sorry for your losses.
