I've been suffering from HA for over a year. I'm mainly focused on cancer.
I'm scared I'll get bowel cancer because I've always had digestive issues
I'm scared I'll her breast cancer because I was on the pill for 18 years due to irregularity of periods and I'm scared I'll get other cancers for one reason or another
Generally I eat healthily and am not overweight. I used to exercise but not for past couple years bar walking but need to go to the gym soon.
My main fear at the moment is alcohol. I always associated alcohol with liver disease and only drank weekends to give my liver a break thinking this would be ok.
However I didn't know the risk to 7 cancers. I binge drank for about 18 years - drinking each weekend about 14-21 units sometimes more. I was rarely drunk as mostly with food and water and spread out but its only now I realise the damage and dangers and I'm so scared. I used to think i was fine as i controlled it but now I feel ignorant and scared as the damage will have already been done. I know now I drank because of stress and awful relationships
I've read lots on the internet about the 7 cancer risk and I'm so scared. I honestly thought because my drinking wasn't a problem i was ok
