So I got an email recently from someone who (allegedly) reads this blog. That happens sometimes, and I'm always happy to hear from people and I appreciate when y'all comment or give me advice via the blog or email.
Well, except when someone tells me I'm a boring whiner. Or, in this case, implies that I and my blog's readers are hypochondriacs.
Yep. She not only insinuated that I was a hypochondriac, but that all of you are too. Nice, huh?
Mostly, I think, she was hoping I would post a link to her article that might drive up her traffic.
Can I just say it's not happening? You might be able to find it, if you want, by googling the title, "10 Signs You're A Hypochondriac." But I hope you won't because I'd hate for her to profit from her advertisers based on page hits.
She thought, and I quote, her article on identifying hypochondria "dovetails well with your (my) audience."
Apparently believing one has an undiagnosed illness/condition and going to doctors frequently are some of the top signs of hypochondria.
Of course, they're also signs of being someone who is sick with something that's challenging to diagnose, which happens to a lot of people from what I have gathered over the past few years.
