Has any of your fears come to a reality?
Hmmm.... Not sure how to answer that. I am obsessed with my health, but I no-longer suffer anxiety over it. I guess I did when my diseases started and I learned that my doctors had no clue and that I was not going to survive.Anyone on here, suffer from this horrible condition?
What do you mean by "what is to become with medicare"?Let's just say I try not to be. I don't want to be like so many of my peers complaining about this ache and pain or that. Though I have them too. As for Covid, for better or worse I hardly give it any thought.
Frankly I'm more concerned with what is to become with medicare. That causes me more concern than my actual health.
Indeed, given that to find a medication that truly works for you, it's most likely for many people to have to cycle through a number of them to find what works.I suffer from generalized anxiety. I have ongoing issues for 9 years. There should be answers in about 5 months. I am just mentally pacing. Health anxiety has to be a special place in hell because sometimes doctors or medications make the condition worse.
Yes, I always think of the worst case scenario. I tend to be a logical person, but that goes out, when I panic.
Me too. Ever since I was 7 or 8 now now 53I suffer from generalized anxiety. I have ongoing issues for 9 years. There should be answers in about 5 months. I am just mentally pacing. Health anxiety has to be a special place in hell because sometimes doctors or medications make the condition worse.
Not as of today, but seeing a dr tomorrow and then, it will happen. Currently, now for about 6 days, suffered bloating, then chronic period type pain; then colicky and scared to eat, because of this.Are you awaiting the results of a medical test? I get very anxious too, at those times.
I used to suffer terrible health anxiety and nearly died a couple of times, from stupid doctoring, which caused me to take my health into my own hands and yes, obsessed too.Hmmm.... Not sure how to answer that. I am obsessed with my health, but I no-longer suffer anxiety over it.

My "anxiety" became an obsession to learn about my diseases as I thought that was my only hope of survival (I now know that was indeed true). My multiple diseases all started in 1989. I often tell people to please not spread it around, because I have more diseases than the law allows.
So, my learning involved studying biology text books in the college library. I also experimented on myself. I started a mono-diet to find what foods did what. Also what activities did what, etc. My diet is rigidly controlled and I still log everything to keep on track, but I now enjoy greater health and vitality than any of my family and "friends" in spite of all my diseases. My health and vitality is now better at 71 years old than anytime before my diseases started in 1989 - at the age of 37.
At this point, I am no longer anxious about my health, because I know that I am in control. I guess that is the key. Leaving it up to the medical establishment is certainly reason for anxiety. Just like with any subject, feeling in control instills confidence, canceling anxiety.
Note; anyone can learn anything they want to learn. All that is required is the passion and diligence to learn it. A college degree does not guarantee knowledge.
