I've been having a lot of struggles lately, with a bad headache (always in the right side of my head), some tenderness in my breasts, and endless, constant, IBS-D. Sleep has been very hard to come by, and it doesn't help that one of my brain's favorite nighttime hamster wheels is, "You're dying of cancer; you just don't know it yet!" The larger, more rational part of me knows that's not very likely. In particular, breast tenderness is likely due to hormonal changes (I'm up to date on mammograms, etc). Likewise, I've been roto-rooted recently enough that it's not likely that my colon is filled with tumors either. And headaches, really CAN just be headaches (not brain tumors).
But in the middle of the night, the little rational voice gets reall quiet, and the hamster wheel keeps on squeakin' on. I know I'm not the only one who struggles with this. I don't want to wake my husband up; I just want to sleep. I can't take medications for anxiety--too many side effects.
Please share your coping strategies with me, and prayers are also very welcome.
