Health anxiety/ cancer fears
« on: August 20, 2014, 12:03:51 AM »
Ok. I have been taught over and over that your mind is VERY powerful. What you think about, you bring about. So, here is my issue... How much can a human body take? Over the past 2.5 years, I have been very inactive. My diet has been horrible (lots of junk and fast food). Well, I am ready to change all that. But over the past 2.5 years, my anxiety has been a 50 on a scale of 1-10. I worry about everything!! And at some point, it turned to hypochondria!! I am scared to death that I have thought so deeply into so many different sickness and cancers and imagined myself having them, that I have caused myself to develop something awful! I started a new job about a month and a half ago. So that has helped keep my mind busy, but I do catch myself going right back to my illness thoughts! I am ready to start exercising. I am only 28 years old. But am terrified that I have stomach or intestinal cancer from my constant worrying and poor diet. I am at a point that I am afraid to eat anything because media says it will cause cancer. I'm afraid to exercise because I am afraid that I have caused myself to develop heart disease from being lazy and eating so poorly. I'm tired of hearing how everything is going to cause cancer!! Am I safe to change? Or am I too far gone??

At your age gastric cancer is next to impossible. You are still very young and can change your health habits. It is never too late.

You dont have stomach cancer.

Heart disease is also extremely unlikely at the age of 28 especially without any family history.
