    Re: Why am I so afraid of my body?

    I am sorry, I did not even know my other post was almost the same. I am just in such panic and don't know what to do with myself. I get confused. This fear is overwhelming. Thanks for replying. xx

    I totally understand the bowel obsession. Been there, worn out the toilet. And bowel woes are a BIGGY with HAers (unsurprisingly as anxiety directly affects the digestive system)

    I'm so sorry you're struggling. You're not on your own though. Maybe have a read of the excellent IBS threads on here?

    P.S, you would be in IMMENSE pain with a bowel obstruction. You're clearly pooing, albeit loose. Just go with the flow (sorry) and adjust your diet to firm stools up and to soften them accordingly...

    Drink lots of water. Try magnesium (I do because I get constipated) and try not to worry because it will affect the bowel...

    Apologies to all, but it is my forehead now

    So days ago I felt like a tiny dent on top of my head, tried to to overcome it, could not, saw my doctor. Your skull is normal, he said. Felt OK for a few days, last night while watching a movie, started rubbing my forehead, now I think there are irregularities and small bumps/ a dent there too. I simply cannot take this anymore. These things on forehead are normal, right, everyone has them.

    I am truly desperate, cannot take this anymore. Just cannot.

    I do not know. I am so sad and just crying. I just want this feeling to disappear.

    Trying to find a different doctor to go to, because I am too embarrassed to go again to my doctor for this. Dear people, any kind piece of advice and comforting words are more than welcome. Please

    I don't know whether this will be kind enough, but you need to learn to accept that bodies are weird, probably by engaging the services of a mental health professional.

    I think the problem is that our attempts to reassure you don't work. You need to learn to reassure yourself but this will be of no comfort to you now.

    You could go to a hundred doctors and get reassurance from all of them but it wouldn't be enough..Would it?

    You will probably think I'm being mean and intolerant but I just want to help you get a grip on your HA and I think the only way now is via a therapist specialising in HA/OCD.

    You've gotten advice and opinions and they turned out to be the case as confirmed by your doctor. The best advice would be to seek real life help for your mental health issues.
