I don't consider myself to be a hypochondriac, but I can be a tad panicky about some things. My father died from colon cancer and now every time I get a slight intestinal cramp I think to myself, "I need a colonoscopy!" My mother has MS and I'm always afraid I have it whenever my leg falls asleep for a little longer than normal.
I get headaches. I've been popping 800mg Motrins a couple times a day for months now. And I forget words, and call people by the wrong name, and I tell Ryan to hurry up and do her homework when I mean get ready for bed. I think I need a peace of mind MRI. I think for the rest of my life I will worry that I have brain cancer every time I get dizzy or forget something. In fact, I'm kinda worried about it already.
