Hi! I'm looking for support and encouragement in getting help for health anxiety that revolves around cancer. I had an actual cancer diagnosis a few years ago after a long period of misdiagnosis, anxiety and fear that I feel wore out my family and friends. In my treatment recovery fears on recurrence plagued me. I have a different type of cancer fear about every week and it rotates what kind. It's been really bad the past 3 months, it's meshed into some OCD like behaviors with avoiding things, and panic. I have an appointment with a therapist next week and I have a call into my dr to see him for medication. I am seeking online support because I don't want to rely on family and friends for support in this because it has caused problems in relationships in the past. I also do better talking to people that can relate and wonder if anyone has found face to face support groups helpful. I did a post cancer support group that actually made things worse hearing about other people's experiences, maybe an OCD focused group would be better?
