Hi all, good news is that I have been managing my health anxiety really well of late thanks to some basic distraction tactics and CBT skills. Unfortunately I am feeling myself spiraling back into the trough of despair today after a visit to the toilet.
Found some red blood on the tissue paper which freaked me a little bit but then looked in the bowl and it was bright pink! Only had this before when I have been able to blame it on beetroot but this time due to a diet I am on I know fine well I haven't been near beetrooot.
I am now focusing on cancer and feel out of control. Is there any advice, comfort you lot can offer or is it a case of visiting the doctor to be told it's nothing and unless I want cameras pushed inside me then stop worrying. arrrgggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh hhhhhh
First, do not worry!
It could definitely be diet related or hemmies...or you might have strained when "going" without knowing.
For the record- I have shat yellow, green and....PINK! (not all at once, that would be a rainbow!
I'm talking the entire BM was a bright PINK! I don't have HA so I didn't worry about it but I was curious- when it happened the second time.
Turns out my affinity to Watermelon Sherbet was the culprit.
It doesn't always happen...but if I eat too much Watermelon Sherbet things are going to be Pink.
Now, you've been doing good up until this toilet treasure was found..... Look at it as a treasure...of sorts...for you to move past the fear/anxiety - and practice what you've been doing all along!
Fruit Ninja? No idea but sure sounds funny
