And just like that my fears of one cancer changes to a completely different one in just a matter of hours. I have finally lost my ****
But both have very convincing symptoms that are hard to ignore

I hate my life

I feel you! Cancer is my biggest fear! It’s the worse cycle ever. All I can think is it must be lurking some where in my body and I will dye without even a chance to fight it. Sorry you’re going through this awful season as well!

I'm sorry. I feel you! Like wtf is wrong with my thinking! My mind is making me think I'm dying so bad that I'm not able to live or enjoy any minute of my life! My mind has taken me as a prisoner! I'm looking for a therapist. Something has to be able to help me!

I am scared out of my mind, too. :( Waiting for doctor to call for almost a week regarding lab tests. The online portal has them but it freaked me out bad when I saw them. I'm interpreting blood work and have no idea what to think anymore.

OP - just try to remind yourself that your fears just from cancer to cancer. you didn't have the last cancer you were worried about so what are the odds that you have this one? what are the odds that this is real and not just another health worry? i know your symptoms feel real... i have been there so many times... but i'm still standing... still totally cancer free...

Maybe a bit philosophical, but true: Thoughts exist only in our mind. The fact that we can (not easily) eliminate them shows they are not real

I do the same thing to myself...any small twitch or different feeling in my body and I’m already googling different symptoms for cancers. It’s a never ending cycle of misery. I hope things improve for you
