    Good lord! I always think that there's something wrong with me. Aches and pains (probably caused by stress) turn into deadly tumors in my own imagination. And the worst thing is that I never go to doctors. I have no insurance, no money and I'm afraid of doctors. So whenever I believe there might be something wrong with me, I sit and home and torture myself with worry. Eventually I convince myself I was foolish and the aches go away, but it's torture like you wouldn't believe while it lasts!:sad:

    Anybody else go through things like this?

    I am quite the hypochondriac. I too am afraid of doctors, plus my social anxiety will keep me from ever attempting to seek help. The internet is the worst thing that ever happened to me. All this information about every disease ever known, I'm going crazy. I think I have them all.

    One of my sisters friends is a hypochondriac, though she's pretty young.

    I feel like there is a lot wrong with me. I guess that qualifies me as one too.
    I guess some of us want things to be wrong.

    I'm a mental hypochondriac. It came from studying Unit 1 + 2 Psychology without studying Units 3 + 4 I think. We would read textbooks and you feel like this:

    Textbook: "Possible signs of severe mental illness X and fatal condition Y include lack of sleep, loss of appetite and inability to concentrate."
    You: "FUCK OMG I HAVE CONDITIONS X AND Y AND Z IM GONNA FUCKING DIE AHHHHH" etc etc

    I have plenty of worries about my mental state. But it all boils down to a phobia of my girlfriend leaving me. I diagnose myself with abused rubbish to try and make sure my girl has to deal with as little bullshit as possible.

    yeah, everytime i get a slight sore throat or a little bit of a cough i start freaking out and think it is cancer. this is because im addicted to cigarettes. Its a vicious circle, i cant stop smoking but it makes me feel bad whenever i do, so then i smoke another cigarette because it relaxes me.
