I think I am ill

Hi I am in my 30s. every time I have pain I think it is a illness but I wont see a Dr in case it is bad news. So I look on the Internet instead and see the worst illness possible then think I have that. I worry so bad it is enough to kill my self but I don't want to die

    Deffo anxiety, nothing more!!

    Please do go to the Dr to put your mind at rest. But if you are like all other anxiety sufferers' you wont believe the Dr.

    I know how hard it is, I've been there, and am still getting through it.

    Dont even think about ending your life , that a permanent cure for a temporary problem. My dear,you will get better one day, I promise, but you need to take the first step, and have a chat with your Dr asap.

    Best of luck

    please go to a doctor you trust.

    I have suffered from these. stop googling it is very dangerous.

    i am much better . you will be fine soon but internet and yourself are your enemies right now. you need help .

    Chris, ironically you are avoiding a doctor, but Dr. Google is diagnosing you with something much worse than a real doctor would. In fact, a real doctor will likely find you are perfectly fine. Go to a real doctor and let him/her ease your mind. Avoid the Internet!!!
