So I have had health anxiety for a while now and first it was my heart, then it was my testis, lymphoma then skin cancer and now leaukemia. When will this end it seems as though I get over a new fear a new one sprouts up out of nowhere. Reasoning for leaukemia is I found random bruises on my legs (only 3) and don't really hurt and I have noticed over the years that I do get these from time to time and never really payed much mind to them and thus they went away and I'm still alive. However my anxiety means I don't have the luxury of passing it off like I used to be able to and mentally scared about the prospect that I may have leaukemia even though it's very rare in Australia (where im from) where it's like 3 per 100,00 cases for teenagers (18 yo). I would go to the doctor but every time I tell my parents about this fear I have it's always passed off like it's nothing which annoys me because what if I did have it but they were to negligent to take me to a doctor to make sure everything's fine.
I'm in a dark spot and the only thing that makes me feel good is exercise but I get home and reality hits and it's like I have cancer, I'm gonna die what is happening to me. I really am annoyed at these constant fears and going onto the Internet certainly doesn't help ease my fear at all. Any advice and opinions will be greatly appreciated.
