You might not want to read if you have a fear of C.
Just as I'm starting to feel better, mentally and physically my co-worker has crippled me with fear. I have been in a shell lately and avoided people when I was at my worst. So since I've been feeling better I decided to tell my co-worker the symptoms I was having and how I feared a brain tumor. Instead of saying "those things are so rare" and "your tests came up clean", she told me I sound like her friend...who had problems...that came and went...and she was misdiagnosed...for 6 months...before they found out she had the big C. Thank God she's a survivor. But still!
I told her I had pretty severe HA, and she kept going! She started asking me if I had this BT symptom or that one. And I said I had a lot of the symptoms, but not EVERY one. So she says, "yeah but you don't have to have them all."
Then she started suggesting diagnosis-like Crohn's, even though the digestive issues have gone. How do I cope with hearing these stories and not projecting them on me? Now I'm worried about anything else in my body that could be going undetected.
