Obsess with health issues? - The People - 09-15-2017

Does anyone else kow every little lump and bump on their bodies and obsess over all of it?

Sometimes we panic over health stuff that isn't a problem because we have no idea how to rate pain or interpret it. Like today. panicking that we were getting sick because we felt hot and sweaty. Like a fever. Panicked for a few hours. Then checked the thermometer and it was 83 inside. So we were hot, just not from a fever, and once the air conditioner was on we felt fine. I think it is normal to panic when we don't know how to tell what is wrong.
