You are a complete hypochondriac. Unfortunately, you can at times let your irrational fears and suspicions get the best of you, leading you to making several doctors trips and talking yourself into believing there's something wrong. Take a deep breath, lay off the WebMD, and enjoy your health!
Somewhat of a Hypochondriac
You are somewhat of a hypochondriac! While you're hardly a full scale hypochondriac, you do have tendencies. You can often get spooked by small ailments, turning them into a bigger deal than they actually are. You spend more time at the doctor's office than the average person and spend a ton of time Googling various diseases.
You have hypochondriac tendencies. You're hardly a full scale hypochondriac. Despite this, you do tend to talk yourself into believing the worst when it comes to being sick. Have the flu? In your mind, it must be cancer. Nagging cough? Lung disease. Keep a calm mind and stay logical. Things are rarely as bad as they seem!
Part Time Hypochondriac
You are a part time hypochondriac. Like so many of us, you can talk yourself into believing the worst possible outcome when it comes to health. It's human nature to prepare for the worst. As long as you don't let your irrational thoughts get the best of you, you'll be just fine.
Not a Hypochondriac
You're not even remotely a hypochondriac. You hate going to the doctor and often refuse treatment. You come from the school of "I can handle it" or "I'll fight it on my own." You're not one to run to a medical professional for help at the first sign of a cough. You're one tough cookie!
