Words that Cause Worry
Here's a question for some who have some mild health anxiety:

Do you find that certain words that reflect your irrational fears cause you to "fire up" and get anxious just by reading about them? I noticed I do that sometimes, not nearly as much as I used to, but still once in a while this happens.
For example, if you have a terrible worry about your stomach being healthy and you hear of bleeding ulcers, does that cause you to get uncomfortable?

Best regards to all, thanks in advance for answering my question. ;-)

I don't personally, but I can see how it would trigger you to begin dwelling on the way you feel.  If somebody talks about having head lice or something similar, I sometimes find my skin itching, in a psychosomatic way.
