I am currently consumed with health anxiety. I have been diagnosed with a kidney stone and an ovarian cyst. My doctors did not seem particularly worried about these. I, however, have been going over and over in my head possible deadly diseases I may have. My beach vacation starts tomorrow, and I am so scared and anxious that I believe I will not be able to enjoy my time off. Don't know what to do.

I agree with your doctor it is nothing to worry about, as they must of done tests to come to the conclusion it was all fine. So go and have a great vacation and tell us all how good it was when you get back and try not to let the anxiety rule your head as it will end up racing and you might feel worse.

They are only thoughts in our minds and yes they can be very scary and we just end up worrying even more. The above link is very good to use too.
