    Re: My Path to Success

    Hey man, thanks for reaching out.

    Overall, I would say I am good. I am not on meds and I still have different symptoms but I am beating it by getting angry at my inner voice which starts telling me that I have x disease. Basically, I am saying "**** you" every time it starts kicking in.

    My biggest concern is always what if. What if I am really sick this time and I don't go to doctors. Also, I think I have this irrational thought that if I worry about disease it will be less likely that I have it.

    I don't want to let this disease (hypochondria) control my life any longer. If I am dying, so be it, at least I would be able to say I lived for a while. Living in a fear is not a life at all.

    Thanks for replying! Nice to hear you are able to control it!
    I feel exactly the same - sorta “ stop worrying than I definitely jinx it and disease would be real”. Totally irrational.
    I would be happy to say “if I’m dying, so be it”, but the problem is that my HA is about my daughter. But it doesn’t change the fact that I should deal with it and this is not living.

    Let’s keep fighting!

    If it is about your daughter then you shouldn't worry because she will pick that up and become like that in the future. You don't want to turn your daughter into hypochondriac.

    Yes, fully agree! That is why I'm so determined to get rid of HA. Good luck to us both!
