Hi all,

Haven't written in awhile.  I suffer from anxiety about my health alot.

i am 52, I am a smoker,very little alchohol.   they found spots on my liver through an ultasound and now i have to have a scan in 2 days to see whats going on.  i am terrified they will find i have lung cancer and also bone cancer i do have a wet cough in the morning.  This consumes my thoughts and drives me crazy.   Does anyone else feel this way sometimes,  Thanks.

    I worry about my health too. I have learned to cope by keeping busy and thinking I need to focus on one day at a time. I'm sorry this is happening to you. Its normal to feel the way you do. Think positive and take it one day at a time. I was diagnosed with Lypus, Fabromyalgia, Rheumatoid Arthritis and bipolar. Despite all of it, I live a normal life and try not to think of my diagnosis. However, I have times where I'm terrified. I will have you in my prayers and write if you need to. It certainly helps me to talk about what's going on in my life.
