So, I may be a hypochondriac.

But, you'd freak out too if, after eating some potentially undercooked pork, remembered that trichinosis was a particularly disgusting infection involving parasitic worms burrowing into your muscle, heart, and brain (for fun photo google helminth, trichinosis, and calcification).
Or, if in a completely unrelated situation, was told by a shocked "Instacare" nurse that your blood pressure was unusually high for someone in their 20's and subsequently and repeatedly draw "pre-hypertension" using the grocery store arm cuff.
Or, if occasionally you feel a pain in your chest and the muscle covering one of the ribs running to the base of your sternum is tender to the touch.
Yeah, you'd freak out too.
I need to go see a doctor.
