My Boyfriend Is a Hypochondriac

"My Boyfriend Is a Hypochondriac"

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

I'm at a loss. My boyfriend is a hypochondriac, and I just don't know what to do. In the past two months, he has been convinced that he has lymphoma, skin cancer, rectal cancer, etc. He has been to the doctor seven times. After being assured that he does not have any of these ailments — by several doctors — he refused to believe they are correct. He believed they were not actually looking and they had missed something and that he is smarter than them. After a month or so, he has been doing a lot better. He was no longer afraid and finally accepted my help and the doctor's help. This lasted for three weeks.

This morning, he told me that he's sure he has cancer on his back. My heart dropped into my stomach. Here we go again! I said the same things I always say. Over and over again. It seems to never help. I've asked him to see a therapist about it, and he did, but he told me today that they didn't even touch on the subject. I'm beginning to get angry. I want to yell at him, but I can't. I want to cry, but I need to be strong for him. Does anyone else struggle with this? If so, I'd appreciate some support.
