I can not bear the thought that my parents are gonna die one day. Is this abnormal? I am very worried & scared to death. How can I become like every1?

Fears: Powerfully emotional fears that seem unspeakable may only express themselves in dreams since you'd censor them while awake. Mothers-to-be nearly always dread such a loss. Speak to your OBGYN to get facts that may reassure you or guide you to the best care for a healthy birth. Don't just worry, you have much better things to do. I hope you hear good news when you ask. ...Read more

So I'm on my menstrual cycle i only have it for like 3 days but is it normal that I bleed from my anus too? I'm kinda worried/scared.

Checked out: If you are bleeding from you anus, it's possible that you have an internal or external hemorroid that's the cause of this bleed. Even 19 year olds can get cancer, though, so it's important that you see a doctor and get a thorough history and exam. Most likely it's nothing serious, but see a doctor and get checked out, just to be sure. ...Read more

Still coughing 2 weeks after sinus infection/bronchitis. Trying to quit smoking. Worried/scared of copd?

Still coughing 2 weeks after sinus infection/bronchitis. Trying to quit smoking. Worried/scared of copd?

Silver linings: Sometimes it takes feeling ill to help people really get serious about quitting. If so, it's doing you a favor. 34 is not too old to have the changes you make be very significant — you should be able to avoid COPD (a good choice!) Worry may not be needed and once it motivates you — send it packing! Two weeks is still w/in normal range for healing, but see your Dr. if it goes on. Get a Star! ...Read more

Found a spot/lump on outer vagina, is purple/red, about half cm in width and isn't sore. Should I be worried? Scared it may be a tumour.

Found a spot/lump on outer vagina, is purple/red, about half cm in width and isn't sore. Should I be worried? Scared it may be a tumour.

Tumor unlikely: What you described suggests that h lump is a Bartholin cyst. It forms due to blockage of a gland near the opening of the vagina. There is no urgency, unless the cyst gets infected and becomes painful. You can wait to have it checked out at your next visit to the doctor. You may consult this site for info in this topic:

What illnesses can I get if I am stressed? And what is wrong with me I am so worried what can it be? And what can I do? Help me so worried and scared

Anxiety disorder: Stress itself doesn't cause any illness but I don't know any illness that's not made worse by stress. I don't know enough details but it sounds like the illness you are suffering from is anxiety itself, which can, of course, be serious enough. Various pharmaceuticals may help but so can supplements, herbs, exercise, relaxation techniques, homeopathy & counseling. I advise seeing a holistic doctor. ...Read more

Do you think I should be worried or scared about getting root canal in a few hours?

Do you think I should be worried or scared about getting root canal in a few hours?

4w3d showed a small bleed is seen anterior and right of the structure anechoic space seen no yolk sac or embryo I'm worried and scared?
