I'm suffering really bad too it started with the fright I may have breast cancer. I've been checked 4 times so I'm kinda trying not to think about it but every day this awful feeling comes over me and I get so upset I'm not going to be here for my two girls. I try to focus on something else or just ride it out until the feeling passes. Sometime it can be 30mins and other times a few hours before the feeling comes back.

Jemma1987, you say you've been checked 4 times for breast cancer but are still convinced you have it. Tell me, how many times would you need to be checked before you accept that the doctors, specialists and radiographers actually know what they're doing? 8 times? A dozen times? Twenty times? Or even more?

You are onky doing what we all do, or have done, on this forum: our jangled nerves tend to exaggerate hugely our natural fears. So the slight concern everybody in you position has that you want to be around for your two girls becomes magnified into an obsessional fear of death.

Once you stop frightening yourself half to death with your strange fears your nerves will recover and all will be right with the world.

I have to tell you Jemma1987 that those four checks by cancer specialists were absolutely correct and you will live to draw your pension without any shadow of a doubt.

i love this reply because deep down i know your right and believe me on my good days i think what a fool get on with your life and stop worrying about what nots there. Ive been told loads im going on like im dead already. My husband says all the time people with cancer cope better than i am because they just get on get treated and fight. And i know this because my husbands step mother had breast cancer and she got the lump taken away and all the treatment and got on with life.

I have horrifying anxiety. It turns in to chronic pain. I thought dozens, maybe 100's of doctors were wrong, and just didn't want to help me with my pain. It's so bad that Ive gone weeks without a nights sleep, and so many other problems. I finally am working on anxiety 1st.. The pain, insomnia, weight problems, etc are improving. It took me years, decades to address the right issue. I still have to tell myself that I need to consider thr doctors are right. I understand how it's hard to believe doctors, even lab work, cat scans, etc.. but maybe it's time to tell the doctors you can't stop thinking you have cancer regardless of the medical proof

Chelsey232, your feeling that you are going to die is a very, very common symptom mentioned by people on this forum. For your own peace of mind, you should visit your doctor and tell him/her of your fears and what the symptoms are. It's highly likely that there is no physical cause for your worry and that leaves anxiety.

When people suffer from anxiety their nervous system becomes temporarily stressed and this makes everything appear ten times worse than it is. For some people, slight aches and sprains become self-diagnosed as terminal cancer with a little help from that old quack Doctor Google.

In your case the natural concern that any parent with a young child has, that's to say wanting to be around to help the child attain adulthood, has become exaggerated into an obsessional fear of impending death - courtesy of your over sensitive nervous system.

It's easy to say Stop Worrying but hard for people with anxiety to do but if you can frame your mind to accept that your fear is unnecessay and is actually keeping your frazzled nerves in a state of frazzle then it time your exaggerated fear of death will recede.

So believe me when I tell you: you are definitely NOT going to die, you're far to young for that, and you certainly WILL be around to guide your child through adolesence into adulthood and beyond. There's no doubt about itwhatsoever.

Just imagine Chelsey232 you wake up one morning and you're 70 years old and your daughter is happily married with a good job and you think to yourself "All that worry about dying early was a crock of s**t, I've wasted my life worrying about something that never happened. Oh, how I wish I could step into a time machine and go back 50 years to 2017, how different I'd do things!"

Well, Chelsey232, you can sort of go back in time 50 years because it's 2017 now. Enjoy life as it comes and forget the rest.

i know how you feel, I'm only 20 and i feel like every headache or sense of smell that no one else smelled is because I'm going to die, or I'm sick with something. i google every symptom and it gives you like 10 different possibilities and somehow i think i have at least 9 etc. i have a mom who suffers from 3 different auto immune diseases, a grandmother who has 1, a grandfather who has a brain tumor with diabetes, a dad who has mental issues, another grandmother who has mental issues, a grandfather who had cancer, an uncle who had cancer, i feel like I'm destined to have something too, i don't feel like myself anymore. in reality, i could be completely fine, but in my eyes something is wrong and i probably won't live to be 22 because i can't even see myself making it passed 21. i can't picture myself in a few months, or years, or whatever being alive. i can't even picture myself alive 2 weeks from now. am i crazy or is it just anxiety? I believe that we can predict our own future and set our own path, if you want to live, feel you want to live. tell yourself every night how proud you're gonna be to meet your grandchildren, our bodies respond to our thoughts , there was an article on a girl who believed she was pregnant and she had symptoms and also grew a belly but there wasn't anything in there. tell yourself you're going to be okay, even if you need someone else to tell you. speak good vibes into the world and you'll receive good vibes, our bodies play tricks on us, and so does our minds. write on a post it "I'm going to be okay" "I will hold my grandchildren someday" "I will never leave her" things to remind yourself you're here for the long haul. I know its easier said than done, but do it for her.

Hi. I feel the same too. I will be 22 in 21 days and I'm so afraid. I have an anxiety disorder, health anxiety. But the fact is I'm in a perfect health, 4 doctors and 5 therapists convinced that. My family members are also healthy. Idk I'm just afraid something bad will happen. I have a family problem and traumatic experience when I was a child.

I also had some nightmares about person telling me I'm about to die.

Anyone please help me, I'm freaking out.

Francine23, it sounds like the family problem and traumatic experience you had as a child is surfacing now causing you to have these nightmares. People in your dreams telling you that you are about to die doesn't mean that literally. What ever this experience you had as a child is causing it to come out in your dreams. It is time for you to get professional help. If this issue was never addressed, it needs to be now. We can't sweep traumatic experiences under the carpet. It will always resurface and cause us emotional pain. Please set up an appointment to see a therapist or your doctor. I wish you well. Let us know how you do Francine. x
