Health Anxiety Support
Founded: 16-November 17
This is a place for health anxiety sufferers who need more support than they are finding in real life. Feel free to vent here; type out your worries for listening ears, without fear!! Anyone can join, but please try to observe the following rules:
- No judgement... even if a fear seems totally irrational or involving what you consider a minor issue
- No negative anecdotes [My husband's cousin twice-removed had something like that, didn't get it treated in time, and died]
- No "helpful" online diagnosing [it could be x (horrible), y (terrible), or z (you don't even want to know)]
- No consulting the Google and reporting back here
- Limited recommendations of specific medical tests or remedies, whether OTC or prescription or "natural". Please recognize that these recommendations may worsen a person's health anxiety.
Also -- there is no such thing as TMI (too much information) here. You can talk about topics you consider embarrassing, gross, anything. Only group members can see posts.
