I have been super anxious lately, my anxiety has sky rocketed and I just can't handle it. I joined in 2011, and back then it was all about
panic attacks for me and just worrying about
my heart. Now it's constantly about
anything that comes to mind, and completely just going to the worst case scenario. My parents think I am over exaggerating and do not take me seriously. I know it's probably annoying for them to hear a 20 year old consistently saying I have cancer or this or that. It just all around sucks.
I really am convinced I have colon cancer. I have the "runs" everyday, every symptom and I'm just so triggered when I hear the word. It is awful working in a public business because all everyone talked about
is how their family member died from this or they have this, or their friend is dying from this, it's really frustrating.
I don't know what to do, I don't wanna get checked because it's the fear of the unknown, and it's super embarrassing but then my mind is telling me you are dying and if they catch it early you will survive so I always feel on edge and I hate it.
Thank you for always listening and showing so much support, this forum still continues to be my comfort place
