I used to be what some may call a hypochondriac. The slightest ill feeling would have me rushing to the hospital because I just “KNEW” something was wrong…usually there was ABSOLUTELY NOTHING wrong with me and a simple glass of water, bite to eat, and nap would have solved my problem. But as a child I was in and out of hospitals and was always at doctors appointments getting the latest vaccinations and tests. I had pretty bad asthma and was prone to spraining my ankles so sickness was almost a mindset I had taken on. But as an adult in a different climate my asthma started to get better and luckily my ankles got stronger lol! With that said I still found myself at times believing that something was seriously wrong and adulting can be weird when you have to find a doctor that is covered under your insurance and set up appointments on your own…so in my mind it was always just easier to go the ER 👀 ridiculous I know! But we all live and learn! After a few hospital visits , about 2 years of nursing school, and a few good talks with more mature adults I stopped having such extreme reactions to every single ill feeling and am happy to say that I actually live a fairly healthy life.
Not saying I still don’t get those feelings of I need to get this looked at or that cough sounds funny because I surely do! I was recently sharing with some friends that it makes me nervous every time I come down with a common cold because I can never remember quite how long the last cold was and if I should be worried that the current one has been around for more than 5 days…my thoughts can get a little out of control and learning how to reign them in is very important for your mental health, physical health and bank account!
Even though I can be a little bit on the extreme side what I do know is that it is so very important that at the least you are getting your annual exams and check ups so that you can be aware of the current state of your health!
