Hypochondriac

an officemate of mine happened to read my profile in friendster (which i happened to copy-paste from a VIRGO zodiac sign description) and asked me what is being meant by HYPOCHONDRIAC.
In common language hypochondriac indicates a person who «thinks he is ill» or merely «imagines that he has symptoms».

Very true indeed...for there was a specific span of time when i imagined myself being terminally ill...my head was aching like hell and i imagined having a very big tumor on my head..i insisted on having a CT scan...
...i can't help but laugh right now on how i pressed on the doctor to have my brain scanned...well, she suggested i had my eyes examined first (i have a minor astigmatism and have to wear glasses when reading) and then wait for further advise...
....the opthalmologist found test results inconclusive of the symptoms i had...and recommended a consultation from a Neurologist...
...i didn't feel bad at that instant though,,, i was quite excited to finally be under the care of a neurologist....and i was so disheartened when he just advised for an EEG...a test that would measure the signals on your brain by frequency to suggest any signs of epilepsy and other brain wave abnormality. it was very diappointing to hear that tests delivered normal results....
...weird, but true...i kept imagining i have a tumor on my brain...

....there was also a point when i imagined i have a bad tumor on my right breast...had to undergo a mammogram test, and was disheartened when the specialist informed me during the testing that there is no abnormal tissue or bad lumps on my breast, and i did not bother to go back and get the exam results...too disheartening that I'm perfectly healthy....

......that's really funny...or should i say, WEIRD....

i am really a Hypochondriac....


.....I never place my cellphone too close on my right head for a very long time coz I feel pain on the right side of my head when I do that.....It's been like that since then...and I imagine there is something inside my head that the EEG did not see...

....HYPOCHONDRIAC indeed....



on this note, you might as well take this test:ARE YOU HYPOCHONDRIAC?
So are you a hypochondriac? Answer the following questions as honestly as you can:
1. Do you worry about your health more than most people do? Yes/No
2. If you've been ill and someone tells you you're looking better, do you feel annoyed? Yes/No
3. Are you bothered by many aches and pains? Yes/No
4. Do you think there is something seriously wrong with your body? Yes/No
5. Do you spend most of your time thinking about yourself and your health, rather than other people or things?
6. Do you feel that other people are not paying enough attention to your illnesses?
7. Do you think the doctor is lying when he/she tells you there is nothing wrong with you? Yes/No
8. If you hear about a disease, are you afraid of getting it? Yes/No
9. Do you worry often that you may have a serious illness? Yes/No
10. Do you have many different types of symptoms? Yes/No
If you have answered yes to three or more of these questions (especially 5,6 and 7), you could be a hypochondriac. Ask your family what they think, and consider making an appointment to see a therapist to deal with your anxiety levels. – (Susan Erasmus, Health24)
