Just last Thursday, my father passed away due to cardiac arrest caused by the tumor bleeding into his lungs and suffocating him. As unfortunate as this situation is for the entire family, we are all a little relieved that it's all over and that he no longer suffers.
However, I have now found a new psychological problem within myself. I now fear cancer like no other. I fear that I will follow the footsteps of my father. Even though I have given up smoking cigarettes for 10 months now, I have come to find out, from doing so much research, that you can very easily get cancer without having smoked a single cigarette in your life because there are so many different types of cancer. I fear that because of this fear of getting cancer and suffering like my father did, I may create a case of hypochondriac. I am now taking many vitamins, eating broccoli, berries, celery, garlic, and many other things to prevent any case of cancer.
Any psychological support to help me get over this?
