    Sometimes I slip back into this kind of thinking. Having experienced some fucked up tragedies, I lived for many years waiting for the "other shoe to drop", I've gotten much better, but this morning I slipped

    I convinced myself I have kidney cancer :facepalm: my pee was the color of #6

    This, coupled with a faint pain I had in my side, I leaped to the conclusion I'm going to die.
    Of course I drank a good amount of water and eventually when I peed, I achieved #2

    So, do you consistently jumped to the worst possible scenario, or are you cool as a cucumber?

    Unfortunately, I'm always in anticipation of something horrible happening, but it's usually about losing the ones I love. I don't really worry about my own health.

    Meh, I'm trying to be cool.
    Had an MRI last week. Got the results today.
    Until I speak to the doctor, I am trying not to think about it.
    Just googling for a couple of minutes made it worse.
    Not gonna google, not gonna google, not gonna google...

    I experience it for other people. Like, "How awful would it be if so and so and such and such developed amoebic dysentery? That would be SO AWFUL."

    Everytime I feel a pang of bloat in my liver area I keep telling myself I cant drink anymore and then I get the sads. Because I love IPA's

    Mlaw would you calm the fuck down and just go see your doctor? If he thinks its anything he'll send you to a urologist.

    You can overcome it, it really takes a whole change of attitude and effort

    I used too, not much anymore.
    I was worried about a CT scan last week- seriously worried. And it's nothing, so I'm back to blissful ignorance.

    i know. i have a great wife who supports me and the best kids, a great job and i'm doing well, but i still can't shake the feeling that something terrible is going to happen to fuck it all up.

    People here is Ireland are seemingly so care-free generally and it does my head in. No one seems worried about anything!
