I think I am a hypochondriac

In addition to being SZA, I think I am a hypochondriac. Do you ever get a little disappointed when your test results come back negative? When I hear that it is nothing, it takes the wind out of my sails a bit, and I have to adjust my panicked mind.

I raise concerns that the doctor thinks are nothing. They are not always correct. They thought my brother had an allergy. It turned out to be a severe blood disorder. So yea I fight to be taken more seriously in my concerns

@anon90843118 I hear you. My mother recently died of cancer and she saw doctors every week. She had the best care (my father and her CNA’s) but the doctors were all just incompetent!

‘Somatic Concerns’ are item 1 on the Brief Psychiatric Rating Scale (BPRS), or in other words, worries about health.
