thank you for replying
its such a relief to know im not alone...people sort of laugh and just tell me not to worry about things, but as im sure you know, its easier said than done!! and of course it doesnt help that i have access to the internet...the amount of times ive looked up symptoms and convinced myself i have diseases...! i actually read a few posts on this forum last night and almost cried because i realised for the first time that i'm not alone...which is a relief
but thanks again for replying and good luck to you too.
