Speaking of which, I have had a massive shooting pain right up my left leg for at least a day now. But I mustn't grumble.

It's such a shame that today's man has 1000000000000000000%* evolved away from the hunter/gatherer type of yesteryear to the whinging office boys of modern life, ain't it DeeGee ;)

*conservative estimate.

Of course there is a stereotype that men have to be dragged kicking and screaming to the doctor while women can't stay away from the place. Not my experience, I have to say, but perhaps one of the GPs among us could comment on the truth of this?

I would say that hypochondria is not gender-specific, perhaps not even gender-related. It's like most things: it's how you use it that counts.

I count myself fortunate that hypochondria is the one ailment I don't suffer from.

Got something to say?
