Does anyone worry excessively about their health?

For the last couple of years, I started to worry excessively about my health. A cold was lung cancer, the headache last week was a brain tumor, maybe the diarrhea I had is a colon problem. I think all this worrying is actually starting to make me sick for real. Has anyone else had this problem?

    Your problem is this…You are afraid to die… So to compensate your worry about your health to the extreme.. That in turn is going to cause real and serious health problems….
    I suspect you want a answer.. well here goes
    1. when you truly realize that you are going to die no matter what you do you can start to relax and enjoy the life you have.
    2. the day you were born you were that much closer to death and every second you are alive you are still rapidly approaching your ultimate destiny.
    3. you asked if anyone else had experienced your problem ..? my only answer is yes I did for years. That is I did until I realized sickness and health…. life and death is all part of who we are …
    I now embrace life as my lord wants me too. In Jesus Christ I no longer fear death . In fact I even look forward to the day of my ultimate destiny

    Yes, I suffered from severe anxiety some years ago. I worried incessantly about my health. After some counseling, I discovered that worrying about my health was actually a distraction from other things going on in my life that I didn’t want to deal with: a bad marriage, overworking, family illness (that was always a big one – always reminded me of my own mortality) My suggestion: turn off the t.v. and read uplifting things, listen to relaxing music. Make sure that you get plenty of sleep at night (sometimes I take Tylenol PM) Avoid caffeine at all costs. Also, limit your sugar intake. Make time for social interaction with people you enjoy. Walk or exercise for at least 20-30 minutes each day. Seek counseling if you are having family difficulties. Sometimes we supress our emotions and they exhibit themselves in anxiety and depression.
