I seriously am taking a step back here, because EVERYTHING you said I do!! I look things up online and when I see that I have symptoms of something I just cry and get so scared that I have cancer or something horrible. Like yesterday I found a bump on my leg, and I rushed to go online and look up what it was. I thought I had a tumor! I always do this and I am 19 so it is common for us I guess. I am not on meds and I wish I were, I wonder if these things would go away with medication. I also worry that someone will break in my house and kill me, or something bad will happen like I will get some kind of disease. It is all the anxiety.
