For a long time I had thought that the pandemic had cured my hypochondriasis. Pre-pandemic I would think about checking in with my NP over any little twinge (didn't often do it but more often than the last two years). Lately I have actually worried whether I would rather die of whatever it was that I was sure was happening to me (headaches = brain mets, stomach upset = gastric mets or new primary..colon) or die of covid.
I have been really anxious. Today it is dizziness so again brain mets? I have to talk myself down which wasn't happening for much of the pandemic. I guess a more reasonable diagnosis is pandemic anxiety. *sigh
If you don't see me post for a few days I have had a stroke and am lying on my floor rotting (at least I no longer have a cat that might eat a leg or arm if his meal got missed).
