August 28, 2008

I am a hypochondria who has been dealing with this illness for years. i am 25 and since I was 18 I have always thought i was sick. It's not even just hypochondria, I worry about EVERYTHING! Any thing that could happen, I believe WILL happen. This is a horrible way to live and it is affecting my relationships with everyone i care about, but most importantly my husband, children and my mother. I recognize the fact that I am a hypochondriac and have now started to try to not let myself go to the doctor as much. As a result I have now lead myself to think that the one time I don't go, it will be serious and i will be beyond help when i finally seek medical attention. I see a counsellor, psychologist, psychiatrist and my family doctor on a regular basis and have sone so for almost 2 years. If ANYBODY knows anything that may help, please post. I feel like I am losing hope and this is no way to live!!!
