Do you obsess about your health problems all the time?

Pretty much. Anything small has got to be a huge problem, and it never is. I've always been like that, though. Just paranoid in general.

The worst part is when I think it's going to be a problem, so I go to the doctor, and then they don't find anything. And then I have to pay the doctor's bills. :(

The way I see it, your body has an immune system for a reason. So no, I don't often go and worry about my health unless I see vital symptoms.

I used too, & while I do get worried more than I should, the pain-killers have removed most of my worries.

Nope. Don't have any.

But even if I did I wouldn't... the mind is a powerful thing,and if you own up to something then you drastically decrease the odds of you getting well quicker.

Not really. I am rarely ever sick, and if something is wrong, I'll definitely let you know, cause I don't really complain about being sick unless it's really bad or painful. Like one time, I was so sick that standing made me queasy and I couldn't even get up to shower that whole day. It was AWFUL I was all greasy and nasty and even if I started to lay a certain way, I felt queasy. So bad omg.

Well, if you consider being paranoid then yes...I tend to worry about my health problems a lot. Especially during the winter months where I get sick the most.

why was it that when i saw the title i knew it'd be you that made this thread

Anyway, no, I don't. I've got my fair share of them and if I obsessed or got paranoid or whatever about them then... yeah, I'd be an absolute wreck. Sad as it sounds, I've never honestly cared enough to be really all that bothered about my health problems unless they're serious - and even then, I don't care nearly as much as many people would (or, tbh, should).

I used to constantly worry over medical stuff. Even as a kid, I always was convinced that there was something terribly wrong with me. I:

Now I don't really care that much. I'd rather live a shorter life and have fun with it than to be 90 and constantly at the doctor for no reason. I also no longer fear this kind of thing. If I end up all sickly and die? That stinks, yeah, but worrying won't help. (:

Sometimes I get random bidy aches I can't explain but Im not a hypochondriac and dont worry about it. My sisters kind of are though and think every ache they get is an awful disease.

No, but sometimes when I'm tired I think too much.

I'll be sitting in bed and feel stomach pains and then tell myself "Oh god, this is it. Your stomach is exploding, all your fluids are going to gush out right here and result in a painful death for you".

I'm paranoid, but I don't obsess over them.

No not really. I don't get sick often, and when I do, I just sleep it off. Now other peoples' health problems I obsess over. They're more important than me.

Yeah but just because I want to make sure I am healthy. I think it is stupid that you basically have to be desperately demanding or lying that you feel ill for the UK healthcare system to do a simple blood or urine test to check your glucose levels and whatnot. IMO it should be annually mandatory.

Yeah I do. I hate going to doctors so every time I think I have something wrong with me I'll stress over it for months until I can will myself to believe that there's nothing wrong with me. I could very well have a terminal illness right now and not know it

(I don't, though. I'm fairly sure if anything I've worried about was serious I would know about it by now )

Most definately. Thing is, I don't wanna end up with something serious and die because something wasn't done previously to prevent that happening. Really frightened of the unknown, so to say.

I'm kind of the oppose most of the time. If something feels off I'll just try to ignore it or sleep it off. I'm still alive, still haven't had that many illnesses, so I'm doing okay so far.

I have a fair few health problems so to some it might seem like I obsess over them but that's just a byproduct of chronic illnesses/ailments/pain/whatever. I actually don't think about it all too often and that's bad because it means I accidentally do things that aren't good for me (like having caffeine too late or getting worked up late at night and exacerbating my insomnia)... or other things will surprise me because I wasn't expecting them although if I'd paid attention to the signs more carefully, it wouldn't be such a problem and so on.

I don't really want to get into specifics but I could probably benefit a lot from being a bit more obsessive with my health. The only problem with that is I know when I do, it gets a bit depressing and overwhelming than the apathetic/ignorant view I tend to prefer despite its consequences. I'm still trying to find a good balance.
