Internet, take heed!
If you are at all hypochondriac in your inclination (as I am), then under no circumstances should you look up your symptoms on the web that connects us all.

Courtesy of a fast-growing mole I have now convinced myself that I have skin cancer and that considering the state of my local practice by the time I get to see a doctor it will be too late and I will need chemotherapy and lose all my hair and have to wear a wig at my wedding.

Because it's all just one clear progression in my head.
Although I am always amused by the fact that in this doom-and-gloom visualising the prospect of death is never nearly as worrying as the blows to my vanity.

*sigh*
I despair at myself sometimes.

Although on the positive side the cat is cuter and fluffier than ever, which is nice.

To ease your mind...
you might not have to wear a wig, you mightn't make it that long...it could be a rapid progressive cancer.

Cheers!

I feel better already!
Hopefully if it's progressive enough that will also save me all the hassle of needing to pack and move house.

Don't worry, we'll all be dead of bird flu before your hair falls out. :)


But joking aside, get the mole checked out ASAP.

I hadn't thought of that, but it cheers me up considerably. Also, an elegant solution to the problem of where to hire a moving van and burly men and other tiresome things.

I get frequent tellings off for looking up my symptoms online...I have a brain tumor though...and the thing on my foot is cancer and my swollen glands are also cancer and I have this and that and everything...

You could have "The internet WAS right!" inscribed on your tombstone...
