Hello everyone,

I am 38 and suffer from health anxiety. It started when I was 24 years old and it’s just there. It triggered mine when I had a cyst on my neck that needed a surgery right away.Ever since I am scared of doctor offices, any pain feels like something is seriously wrong, any bump is cancer. I am sure many of you can relate. This caused digestive problems. I had h pylori and suffering from severe ibs.I have two kids 13 and 6 years old and they keep me busy being virtual schooling full time. Lastly my anxiety has doubled and like today I barely can function. I went to dentist and for some reason my tooth broke and it’s the front tooth ( so devastating ) and now I scheduled a extraction and will have to wear flipper? Until it heals to get the implant. But the bump above was worrisome to him and took an xray. This was at the specialist office.He said he didn’t expect it to be so hard and it’s right under my lip above that tooth. I am freaking out it’s cancer. I am taking medication and normally I am fine, his reaction scarred me. So yes that’s why I am here looking for support and people who can relate, how they cope and how they live with it.
