One of the biggest problems with my psychology and nursing classes is that I have diagnosed myself with a lot of the things we have studied. I’m sure you have probably figured out a few of the possible psych disorders just from reading my site. But thinking I might have obsessive compulsive disorder or multiple personalities was never scary. Thinking I have some of the things we are studying in my nursing courses can be pretty frightening. For example, I had a slight pain in my chest after eating dinner a few nights ago. Heartburn? Nope. I was about to have an abdominal aortic aneurysm rupture. My bad headache the other night wasn’t just a headache, I was about to have a stroke. When I didn’t have a stroke, I wasn’t relieved, because it just meant I had an inoperable brain tumor. After re-reading what I have just written, I have just made another self-diagnosis: hypochondria. See, this is never ending!!
I know I’m not the only one who does this- what have you guys diagnosed yourselves with?
Congratulations Vanita on becoming a Grandma!!
