I really hate not taking my own advice


So I spoke a week or two ago about not googling symptoms whenever you think something serious is wrong with you during an anxiety attack.

Well guess what I just did.. -_-

I have pain In my left leg and it "looks" like I have a swollen vein or something also I saw like a few red dots on my skin, looked it up

And the first bull crap I see is "10 symptoms you may have leukemia and not know it"

I am so sick of this, it's like everyday I'm living in my own twisted hell where I obsess over something being wrong with me and trying to find out if it's serious or not. For once I would like to have an entire day of being happy and not worried if I have some serious issue in my body. I'm only 22 !!! For Christ sake I shouldn't be this stressed :////

On another note, I really hope nothing is wrong.

I know I do the same wtf!

I hate it

Once I even called the ambulance on myself because I was convinced that I was having a deadly allergic reaction when I was completely fine

Amazing what the mind does. It's either you best friend or it can be your worst enemy. I get anxiety from knowhere for no reason!

This statement is so true

lol ... worst mistake you can ever do is to check your symptoms on google... google will give you 1 million results to your one simple problem and you will automatically think about the worst case scenario . i kno i do that too ,, its scary but funny AF

Lol yup

You sound just like me 😝 EVERY little symptom that I experience makes me panic a little bit & right away I'm on Google. 😔 you sound like you have Health Anxiety! That's what I determined I have. I'm constantly worrying about my health! & I'm only 21.. I should be enjoying Life & not dealing with this bullshit anxiety, stress, etc bullshit. 😣 I hope your doing better tho. Just know your not alone. ❤

Yup that's exactly what I have

And horrible over obsessive negative thoughts
