Does anybody else here suffer from this and have any advice or tips?
I’m going to blur this big in case people don’t want to read depressing thoughts
I seem to through patches of convincing myself I’m dying of loads of different things, normally cancer but sometimes STIs, heart attack etc.
Sometimes I can be fine for months at a time and then I’ll have periods of all consuming dread and when I’ve had a kinda “ambiguous” diagnosis of being fine by the GP I’ll immediately look for something else that might be killing me.
Not sure if it’s death I’m afraid of or hospitals and treatments.
I guess it stems from my dad dying when I was a child but it seems to have gotten worse since one of my best friends passed away from an aggressive cancer.
Hard to avoid googling things and I think I’m getting to the point where I’m not going to be happy with a GP until they actually diagnose me with something serious
Anybody here found a way to live with and through this?
