When a Double Ear Infection is actually a Good Thing

Before having cancer touch your life, little aches and pains go mostly unnoticed or can be put out of our minds with the help of a little ibuprofen.

 

After having cancer touch your life, every feeling is a "What if" or "Maybe I should be worried". 

 

My husband started getting bumps up and down his neck a while ago.  He had neck and throat pain and felt run down.  We were both assuming the worst. I had thought on many occasions to ask you guys about it on this forum but I was somehow afraid that it would make it real, that it would make it be something bad.  I know that doesn't make a lot of sense but OCD is not a stranger to me!!

 

He finally saw the doctor today and he has a double ear infection.  Not a pleasant thing but he will gladly take it.  Thanks for listening and for always making me feel like a I have place to fall apart if I need to.  You guys are the best!!

    Hypochondriac...or no?

    I mentioned to my doctor once that I was a hypochondriac, and he said "if you think you're a hypochondriac, you're not a hypochondriac."  I had to think about that for a minute but it made sense.  Now I just think I'm an over-thinking worrier.

    But, of course...

    If you ever think that you're over thinking I think you're not really over thinking but maybe I am under thinking.
