I am a hypochondriac. I spend most of my time online, looking up symptoms of different diseases and as irrational as it may seem, am 100% convinced I have that disease. Over the last two years I have "had" cancer 5-6 times and have had other chronic diseases such as diabetes multiple times. It is taking over my life and I don't want it to. I'm 17 years old, this started a couple years ago, but has gotten worse over the last six months. I don't know what to do...is there someway I can cope? someway I can make myself think rationally?
Any help/advice is appreciated.
