Hey guys. I've suffered with hypochondria my entire life, pretty cool huh.
My main concern is that I'm having a very difficult time with my recent concerns differentiating reality from what I may or may not be making up with my additional hypochondria and ability to self inflict certain symptoms based off of what I've decided may or may not be afflicting me, lol.
I went through a period of time where I was working a very physically stressful as well as mentally stressful job for sixty hours a week. I manage 500 employees and usually spend 10/12 hours a day invested in physical labor as well as quick stressful data anaysis. I recently hit a wall, 1.5 years into this job, where I suffered severe facial pain on one side, neck pain as well as stiff arm muscles and overall weakness through my entire body. My doctor has contributed all of this to tension and my recurring and horribly painful tmj. My heart wants to accept this analysis, but my brain is convincing me it's something more sinister (MS, fibromyalgia, etc).
I want to just accept that the tension and stress is causing all of this, but also my hypochondria is raging out of control. Suggestions, jokes, wisdom? Any and all is appreciated

Twice today I've gone into the restroom at home and found little stripes of toilet paper on the bathroom counter which I assume is a suttle way of telling me how much or more aptly how little to use. So I tried to order some, not available anywhere.It makes me angry to be in these times for who knows how long. Surley they will have to figure something out soon. Sometimes I just want to break...
