I want to help!

Hey, I'm Damako. To start things off, I will say that I want to help all of you because I know what you're going through. Last summer I thought I had AIDS. My friend poke me with a peice of metal that he had been poking alot of other people with. Then I saw a spot on me that looked like a AIDS legion. I tried to get the thought out of my mind but my OCD would just keep bringing it back in. I went into a deep depression. Every second of every minute of every hour of every day I worried about AIDS. I went to the doctor and he said I was fine but I still didn't get better. Not even the birth of my neice could get me pass my problem. I stopped running and just about everything else in my life besides worrying. Then one day as I was on the brink of losing my sanity, my mom got her friend who was a psychaiatrist to help me. My mom told me what her friend told her and I was ready to give one last push to get back on my feet. I started running again, and got my life back on track. Sure my OCD tries to scare me constantly but I fight it and I'm not ready to give up. It turns out I didn't have anything wrong with me. I will never get my hypochondriac experience but I will use it to drive me to reach my goals and I hope I've helped you. Never give up there is always hope!
-Damako

miss

soooo glad I found this site ... I too have just started to get these thoughts im dying worrying about my four kids and leaving them without a mum ... I would say this started about two years ago I sick really sick and assumed the worst thought it was aids (3 negative test so clearly not) the docs kept telling me i was imaging being ill which i wasn't turned out I had strep infection which lead to rheumatic fever ever since I have become obsessed over my health..At the moment i have lower back pain but i had a baby 5 weeks ago so i figure its prob something to do with that also on iron tabs at moment which has made things even worse i now think i have bowel cancer symptoms hey we all know what extra iron can do to the bowels so think its just piles and constipation (sorry too much info lol ) grrrrr so glad im not the only one out there with this problems its horrible actually got a panic attack the other day from thinking on it too much .. been to docs today but back on Friday for my postnatal check up so figure i should tell the doc how i feel then get this crazyness sorted :(

This is to carolyn n Tammy. I too saw my mother die but I was 25. Every since then I worry about dying and leaving my 3 kids without a mom to take care of them. Every little pain I feel I look it up on d net wish doesnu't help. Now I'm feeling tingling on my left ARM n now I fear I'm going to have a stroke or A heart attack. I have had a nuclear test run, n a ekg everything comes out fine. I am diabetic n have high blood pressure n have chest pains n muscle pains, I too have pcos so when I went for my 3months check up .my liver enzymes were high. I know I'm hyperchondriC :( I just read on d net that this is one of worst disease. Cause it like if we r just waiting to die. I agree with d person who wrote that. Cause every pain.we feel with think we r dying.
