survivor, good luck! i hope you are able to find the right program and succeed in your goals.
and i do agree with you that i am in tune with my body...i notice every little twitch or tingle, and then my brain jumps to the conclusion that i have tumor, or MS, or ALS, or a rare exotic disease. i obsess over my body and my health at times. this is truly (and unfortunately) hypochondriasis. i am working on it, though! i have improved a lot over the past 6 months. :)
dx: dysthymia, generalized anxiety, health anxiety (hypochondriasis)
