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??
