RE: What do you worry about?
I try not to worry about things too much, but when I do, this is what I worry about:

I worry about tornadoes every time it storms outside.

I worry that there are nuts in any cookie I don't make myself - so I don't eat cookies very often.

I worry that my parents will find out about my deconversion before I'm ready to tell them myself and I'll lose their support with raising my son and I'll rarely be able to see him until I finish grad school and have family friendly hours.

I watch these sweet old couples at work and worry that I'll never have that, that I'll be alone - that I'll be another statistic after the first divorce, any subsequent marriage has an even higher likelihood of failing.

Any time I've been sexually active I worry about getting knocked up until I have monthly confirmarion otherwise.

I worry that my brother is going to die of colon cancer because he's not getting his colonoscopies routinely and has an extremely high likelihood of developing it thanks to his ulcerative colitis and family history (just lost a cousin to it a few years ago, lost an uncle to it when I was six). There's not much incentive for him to stop smoking because he probably won't live long enough for it to be the thing that kills him. Sadcryface

Re: What do you worry about?
I worry about my mom dying. I mean, she IS dying. But when she goes I'll have to deal with so much more shit.

I had a heart attack in my early 20's and there's permanent damage, according to my last doctor. She advised that I might walk out the clinic and die, but didn't recommended a specialist or anything. Now anytime something feels off, I get ill from worrying. It's not that I might die, it's that my kids and cats wouldn't be taken care of.

I really worry about how well I'm preparing my kids for life.

Do you still see a doctor to monitor your heart?

Re: What do you worry about?
No. I go to the ER when there's a problem. So far it's only been heart-related twice. I get treated and released.. that's one reason I went to a regular doc, to get a referral to a specialist. She's in her 60's, I'm in my early 30's. She said, "I fully expect to live longer than you do. You could walk out of here and die."

I get treated like a second class citizen when it comes to medical issues, physical or mental. I will go to another doctor next time there's a problem and ask for a specialist.
And I've been worrying about seeing a new doctor, too. The first heart attack was drug induced; once that's out, I seem to lose all worth in their eyes.

RE: What do you worry about?
I worry that I'll never figure out what to do with my life, and that if/when I do it'll be too late to do it or I'll be too stupid/bad at it to do it for a living. This kind of thinking causes me not to do much, and worry all the more about never figuring things out.

I worry that I'll end up working way too much at a job I don't like to support a lifestyle of living way too little, like almost everyone in my family.

I worry about being forever alone.

I worry that my parents think I'm going to hell, that they worry themselves sick about it, and that our relationship will continue to decline. We used to be so close.

I worry about my little brothers. One of them just graduated high school (online school) and is so unprepared for the real world. Even less prepared than I was/am and that's saying something. He might not get to go to college. Then again, he's much more social than me so maybe he'll be okay. He wants to be a writer (he's working on a book) and a voice actor, and I worry about him not fulfilling his dreams and being unhappy. I worry that he'll always be limited by the stupid beliefs we were raised with, or that if he does ever stop believing, how hard it will be on my parents. My other little brother is still in middle school, and he can be difficult to get along with. As a result, a lot of people don't like him and the ones that do aren't always the best influences. Even my parents can be really rough on him, when they aren't super busy with their new jobs. They've changed; he doesn't get the loving, involved parents that I had. On top of all that he sucks at school. I sometimes wonder if there might be a way I can get him interested in science or something.

Ugh, that got sadder than I expected. I feel kind of bad complaining when some of you guys are dealing with serious health issues or dying loved ones. I feel for you.

I'm off to watch something funny.

Bloody hell. If a doctor did that here in Australia there'd be hell to pay!

In the US isn't health care a business, not a service? As such shouldn't doctors take better care to keep return customers?

Notice I did not use the word "patients".

Seriously, what the fuck? She says you can die soon and still makes you leave, with nothing? I'd say complain to the medical board/whoever oversees that doctor.
