    I an writing just to say how much damage doctors and other people can make to our brain ( besides googling)...
    One orthopedist told me that my herniated disc will worsen over time and I will probably have to have surgery. Otherwise I may even get paralyzed. I write it and I remember my fear to death... The same orthopedist 6 months later told me that there is not something really serious with my neck...
    A physiotherapist told me I had to do brain mri to see if I have multiple sclerosis... I paralyzed from fear. I had to go to 3 nevrologists, have mri and a physiatrist to assure myself that there isn't something wrong... Even now from time to time, I may think it.
    In addition, googling is really very harmful... Whatever symptom you google, you can read every possible rare disease which is not cured. No googling anymore!

    Yes - i got terrified by Doctors too. I'd see one and they would say there is nothing wrong - go back to work, then another would say 0 you have a muscular disease - maybe MS, rheumatoid arthritis or lupus - it was hopeless!!

    I just read your story. Motivating, touching. The fearful nature... It sounds like me.... Go on. Keep living. Thanks.
