Hello im 17 years old have have a big fear of getting cancer. Lymhomas mostly. It really sucks it really does. About 5 months ago i was a normal kid who went to the gym every morning had fun with friends and just lived life. But now out of no where about 4 months ago i had a huge cancer scare and its really taken over my life drastically and it sucks. I feel like i cant enjoy life no more. Im always worried i feel like i get sick alot. Back when i didn't have my worries everything was great. I couldn't remember the last time i would get sick in years!! And now everytime i get some cold or flu it scares me too death and makes my anxiety through the roof. I know i should be seeing a doctor so they can talk to me and put my mind at rest but my mother has been very busy with work so its hard for her to take a day off. She alwahs reassures me that everything is fine she basically would know if something serious was going on with me but she says if she truly knew something was wrong she would not wait off on it. About 3 weeks ago i cought a upper respiratory infection. Lasted about 4 days and was gone then now my throat hurts my lymph nodes are swollen and it freaks me out now. I was somebody who woul brush stuff like that off and was fine a few days after. Now every little thing bothers me. I get tension headaches body pains the whole 9 yards. And it really sucks. I do my best too keep my health up good by working out. Playing basketball alot. Eating as much good foods and fruits as i can. But now i just dont know what to do anymore i just have a fear that ill nr diagnosed with something that i dont want.. sorry for the long writing just feels good too get this all out of my mind. Knowing that u guys are good at helping others out. Again thank you for reading this.
