please help

Hi my name is Tammy im 28 years old. I lost my mother when I was 11 and she was all I had. I now have 4 children and one on the way. Every since my first child I had a great fear of dying, I would get anxiety attacks from it. I seems like with each child it gets worse. Im constantly thanking there is something wrong with me. I recently had a pain in my leg and automaticly thought bone cancer. Was crying and praying, very stressed. The computer dont help any when I get a sympton Ill put it in and usually cancer comes up and ill think im dying. I have watched so many people die the last few years it scares me. Also my childrens father is worthless and I fear if something happened to me what would happen to them. I smoked for 12 years and guit almost 2 years ago in fear of lung cancer. Thats a good thing. Im constatly worring about myself and my children myself more. I want it to stop, im tired of being stressed all the time. Very afraid to take medication in fear of side affects. Worry that taking a medication for a long period of time will cause cancer as well.
