Miss Honeychurch,
my story is so similar to yours! I also "had" MS, Lou Gehrig's, heart disease, cancer and several other illnesses. After lots of invasive tests my doctors convinced me I was not at the brink of death, but rather was suffering from anxiety and stress-related hypochondria. So I started seeing a T to handle stress and other issues. But I stopped going b/c the medication (Lexapro) made me feel less anxious. Now I think I need to see a T again, b/c the same issues are here. I think they'll never go away, and I need to really work on better ways to manage anxiety & stress. And face the fact of mortality, which I hate.

I see you as a success story! Have you been able to stop thinking you have diseases? Do you have entire days where you don't think about having a disease? (I wish I could!)
