Hi, my FP had a health scare a couple of weeks ago, she's had the results back and there just cysts so all is good.
But my brain is telling me that she's lying to me as she knows how fragile I am and doesn't want me to spiral. I know she's healthy as she wouldn't lie to me, but my mind is working over time telling me differently.

You’re probably using emotional reasoning which leads you to take responsibility your other people’s emotions. However with your heightened emotions you probably feel they are suffering, to a degree that they wouldn’t tell you for fear of upsetting you. That being said, you have to recognise these are just thoughts you are having. When using emotional reasoning you distort the facts of a situation. Try to ground yourself and stick to the facts. The facts are it’s not too serious.
