    HA Acceptance

    A good Psychiatrist Dr. Emmett Miller said, “anxiety is not something that happens to you. Anxiety is the result of what you do with what is happening to you.” You do not have to accept anxiety. I got mad, and had enough. I’ve been in therapy for 2 years and while I’m not 100%, I’m doing much better. Hang in there and get pissed and then into therapy if you’re not already.
  2. Leah, the techs and the Radiologist are the first ones to see your MRI, if they saw anything life threatening, they would have had you on the phone and in there so fast! I am almost certain nothing is wrong at all. I’ve had a CT, MRI and labs and the waiting is the worst, but you can do it. You’re fine!!

    Stopping Meds

    Only come off if you feel that you’re ready. Do it very slowly. The rate at which one comes off varies greatly and can cause you great anxiety if you don’t see the results you want right away. If there’s any issues, contact your doctor for help in getting off the medication.

    Anxiety and the stomach..

    There is a known and proven mind gut connection. Stress, depression, and anxiety can cause hell in your stomach and mess up your digestion. The Vagus nerve controls many things in the body and is also linked from the brain to the stomach. Look it up and you will see!

    Brain dead?...

    Being brain dead is not a possibility as you were lucid enough to type your post. Have you been to a Psychotherapist? I go once a week myself and I think it could help you too!!!

    Diagnosis (potential MS trigger)

    My mistake, I meant it to Liv. I should have specified. I know someone with MS and you’d never know it. He just keeps up with the doctor and is in great shape. Anxiety can make us feel like we have all kinds of things and while sometimes we do, many times it’s nothing.

    Aching Chest, left arm--plz help

    I highly doubt anything changes. Heart diseases wouldn’t just happen like that. Anxiety, stress, and even gas can cause chest pains.

    MRI on Thursday

    Very glad everything is okay! Now you can relax and enjoy the weekend!

    Diagnosis (potential MS trigger)

    You do not have MS. Trust in what the doctors are saying even though it’s hard. I would get into therapy once a week. It helps me!

    The flu

    I think the media unintentionally created anxiety. If you take care of yourself and get prompt care, you’ll be fine. Do as your doctor says if you have the flu, and for most, it clears up with no problem.
  11. Awesome job! I’m proud of you! I believe the results will be clear. I know they said it takes a week, but if something is found, they won’t wait. They’ll call you right away. You’re fine. :-)

    Terrified of variant CJD (Mad cow disease)

    Trust me, you do NOT have CJD. That is sooooooooo rare, I mean fewer than 1000 cases a year. Your issues are anxiety! You are fine!!!

    Dark stool

    The steak and wine alone will make stools dark. You're fine!!

    Melanoma is probably one of the most common things. The good thing is that the doctor caught it on time. For you, that is likely a harmless mole. My wife has a few of them and none of them are dangerous. I would try and relax

    This is nothing more than the pneumonia and the stress on top of the of being a student. Rest, fluids, and your doctors advice and you'll be just fine!
