I have OCD and am always obsessing about soemthing...most the time it is health related. I know what triggered my OCD...when I was 8 , a friend of mine's mom got diagnosed with cancer....she later died too. I was always so depressed and so worried that this would happen to my mom or me. Since then it's been a roller coaster ride when it comes to thoughts about my health. I drive myself nuts. Rationally, I know I'm a healthy person and yet every headache is a braintumor, pain is cancer........................you name it...I've imagined it. Lately I've been very thirsty and am dizzy when I stand up.........must be diabetes? .....
I just had my dh take blood from me today, he's a dr, and I'm anxiousely awaiting the results tomorrow....hopefully I'm not dying.
The worst part is ...that I LOVE my life and am an EXTREMELY happy person; depsite my OCD"s attempt to rain on my parade...
