    Yes all the time. It’s aweful for my quality of life and I know I have to work on having a more realistic and calmed attitude. If anything will shorten my life and diminish its quality, it’s all of this over-hyped stress. I have to constantly tell myself ”you are young, you are healthy and you have no real reason to believe otherwise”.

    I have to tell myself and believe that if something was really wrong, I would know… My body would show real signs and REAL symptoms.

    Hope this helps

    Oh, and yes I google stuff for that all the time… And I really shouldn’t, it only aggravates things. If I am really worried, I am trying to skip googling and see a real doctor about it.

    Google = more stress

    Doctor = piece of mind
