Just as I was doing well... Ugh!!!
« on: May 19, 2014, 10:02:35 AM »
Just as I was doing well with HA, yesterday I met up with a friend I hadn't seen in a few years and boom, another trigger comes along... She told me she'd been diagnosed with lymphoma recently. It's ruined it for me, just as I was starting to be in control of my hypochondria :( Luckily the doctors have said she'll do well as what she's got is easily treatable. But holy f**k did it trigger another HA wave in my head :( Just needed to vent.

Sorry to hear about your friend, but I'm glad to hear her doctors are so optimistic.

I feel your pain - a friend of mine was just diagnosed with ovarian cancer, and since I'm unfortunately experienced with care of cancer patients she's contacted me a few times asking for how to deal with side effects.  It's scary.  But it doesn't make us any more or less likely to get sick; it's just something bad that's happened to someone we know.

Thank you. I'm sure she will be.

Thank you, and I know it won't make me sick too but as I have a few worries of my own (as any good hypochondriac does!  :spineyes: ) I just feel them increased because of it. It sucks!
