  • Welcome to my demise

    Recently, I had a raging flare up of my chronic, terminal hypochondria.
    It always hits on a Friday after regular doctors’ and dentists’ hours are over, which only increases the intensity of the flare up.
    I’ve died many times from hypochondria, if only in my mind.
    This recent attack came as a result of using too many new dental hygiene products at once. I had seen a commercial that warned: If you’re not whitening your teeth, you’re yellowing them.
    Sounds ominous, right?
