I am something of a disease connoisseur. You may want to think of me as a hypochondriac, but I find that word distasteful. And upsetting. It sends me to my thermometer and Dr. Internet. At any rate, here is a list of some of the things I think I've had.
|Great. I'll probably get this, too. Damn.|
Stroke. I fear this, because who wants to suffer from a stroke? No one, that's who. I worried more about this before I learned the ways to determine if you've suffered from a stroke [Try and smile, lift your arms above your head and say a sentence. Can you do this? Yes? Congratulations! NO STROKE!], but I still find myself concerned when, say, my eye won't stop twitching.
West Nile Virus. I actually asked my real doctor about this. In my defense, I HAD been bitten by a number of mosquitoes.
Liver disease. I drank quite a bit in my early twenties. More than my share; probably your share, too. Of course, while I was drinking, I didn't think a thing of it. Now? Well, at least the liver is self-regenerating, right? Right?
Your turn - do you worry about your health? Or do you really, really think about it a lot?
