i know this sounds silly - but i worry that i am becoming paranoid about my health!I have a really nasty ulcer in my mouth at the moment - round the back - it hurts to talk, eat and swallow - i went to the dentist today fearing it was the beginnings of oral cancer - especially as i have recently fallen off the non-smoking wagon!i have a mole on my leg which sticks out a bit - and i constantly worry it is skin cancer and watch it closely for any growth! i am so paranoid about everything! I think the only thing i am no longer paranoid about is IBS!! i really believe i have ibs and nothing worse! I used to worry it was worse but i have accepted it now. I have a test in October which should confirm it for me - but i sometimes wonder why i am going as i am happily convinced now that it is classic ibs.I don't understand why i get so worried and panicked it is so silly and really annoying! how can i snap out of it!i think step one is to stop reading so many health magazines!!! any more suggestions!!??it comes to something when you worry about your health so much that you actually worry about being a hypochondriac!!! These things are all very real to me! I don't want people to think i am just making a fuss all the time!!!
