I am good TY Mumof2000.

Off to meet an internet contact of 2+yrs in the flesh at 11.

It is the week as i meet a MNer on Wednesday.

Why are you feeling low today?

Any worries we can help you with?

mumof2000 Fri 14-Aug-09 10:25:04

thanks , im worrying about a health issue getting myself in knots and googled that doesnt help ...

i have had cloudy mucus thing in mornings for a while now and sometimes in day , along with feeling like i need to swallow alot ... this im sure is made worse by me stressing ....also i saw on tv a thing about oral & throat C and this has sent me spinning ...also checking for lumps spots in my mouth ,i can see a few thigs but to be honest i dont know if they are ok or not ..
i have suffered with health Anx for sometime now and am bad at moment ...

i spoke to doc this morning who was nice said she doesnt think it could be anything like that but will see me tomorrow to try and put my mind at rest .

thanks for listening

Glad i could be here.

Read you 'cloudy mucus' and thought downstairs not upstairs

Hope Dr can reassure you.

hmm googling isn't advisable unless you have the facts and are just confirming them or looking for more 'life experiences' to be honest.

not depressed me

mumof2000 Fri 14-Aug-09 10:46:42

thanks ruby , just feel so sad tearful ....anx is a horrid thing ...

IsItMeOr Fri 14-Aug-09 10:49:14

Hi mumof2000, that sounds a bit like my disgusting mouth/throat. I always seem to have disgusting lumps on my tonsils and the arch bit in front of it - sorry is that tmi? - and it's hard not to worry about them, isn't it?

Does it hurt at all? Because, if it does, and you're not pg/bfing like I am at the mo, I've always found that gargling with soluble aspirin really helps to kill the pain (swallow it afterwards for max benefits obviously).

Can you do something to distract yourself today? Have you got little ones at home with you? Trip to park? Coffee shop?

it is hard specially when i get a thought in my head like this and it just wont go away till i get it checked out ...

IsItMeOr Fri 14-Aug-09 10:50:53

Can you try the breathing in through your nose then exhaling very slowly out through your mouth thing? That does help me when I'm having anxiety.

mumof2000 Fri 14-Aug-09 10:55:11

thanks all , no pain in throat or mouth , just swallowing feeling and under tounge by lower veiny but i noticed whitish thing as i said may be nothing but googled and said poss mouth C sad so now in rears with worry ...and no physical illness , H anx triggered a few years ago by cyst i had on hand i think and since then any thing i get i worry and think WCS i have IBS and of course worried was something els till had lots of tests to rule things out ..

IsItMeOr Fri 14-Aug-09 10:59:29

I get the swallowing thing when I'm anxious too, so could that be the same for you?

Do you have any strategies that help you to relax when you're feeling anxious?

Would chatting about something else help?

mumof2000 Fri 14-Aug-09 11:01:45

i dont know , i feel so worried cant think what els to do , maybe i should call dentist ....but in tears cant talk ..

mumof2000 Fri 14-Aug-09 11:03:16

going to see doc bout throat thing tomorrow will she no about mouth c things to?

IsItMeOr Fri 14-Aug-09 11:08:29

I'm sure GP will be able to give you a referral if you need one. Have you ever talked to them about your anxiety? They might be able to help with that too.

Do you have a garden you can go into and just breathe? Or a balcony, or open window and lean out? Try that now for 5 mins and then come back.

If I'm not here when you get back it will because ds has woken up and needs feeding btw.

mumof2000 Fri 14-Aug-09 11:09:34
