So, im 29 years old, for 3 months I have been on a self destruct pattern of negative thinking about my health...starting when I had a bad bacterial infection...even thought i was diagosed with this, I still GOOGLED my symptoms...a big no no....since, I have gone from colon to stomach cancer to Hepatitis C to who knows what.
I had blood tests, Ultrasound and Endoscopy, all in the past 3 months that all came back clear of ANYTHING...not even the smalles thing happeing in my stomach.
Basically, I spend most days focused on how I am feeling, more how my stomach is feeling...now I have IBS anyway....so most days in the past 3 months, I have an upset stomach, have pains in my stomach, have nausea.....without a medical explanation other than IBS.
I need advice from anyone suffering from anxiety or Hypochondria (a very real mental illness that I know I have) about there symptoms, if anyone has the continued stomach pains and upsets that I have? Even when I am not thinking about something negative and trying to be positive, the symptoms can come one from no where and all of a sudden, everything I do to beat this goes away and the negative.."what if this time its something" thoughts come flooding back in.
Anyone have any advice, anything just to keep me going in this figth to recover?
