Ok, who wants to admit it?

  1. Ok, I will admit it.

    Since starting nursing school, I am one of "those" who thinks I have every disease in the book...LOL. :uhoh21:

    I have learned soooooooo much about the human body, and of course, of all disease and their processes, only to look neurotically at myself. LOL.

    Am I the only looney tune who is kinda....ummmm...self obsessed with diseases since allllllll this knowledge I learned the 1st yr of RN school?!!! :smackingf

    I will have agree with you. The more I learn the more I say "If I'd a known that's what it did to me, I wouldn't have done it". This past weekend, we were studying for a psych test and while I was reading, I was labeling the diseases with the names of family members or friends!!! :chuckle

    I started getting neurotic back in A&P............LOL

    I already warned the nurses at my daughters' pediatricians' office that I'm starting nursing school in the fall. I just know I'm going to think they have every disease I study. The nurses all laughed and said they've been there!!

    Taking A&P I and Developmental Psych has made me realize how blessed we are to have two healthy little girls. It just seems like so much can go wrong from conception on, that I thank God each day for what He has given us!

    I am the queen of hypochondria. I never go to the doctor and I have been like 4 times this semester. Everyone makes fun of me cause I am always thinking I have terminal illnesses!

    Right now I have hypertension, CHF and varicose veins. I only REALLY have varicose veins (oh, and most of they time I'm tachycardic!).

    This is SO funny, but true!! :chuckle
    I was pregnant when we were in Maternal/Child class. (All about prenancies and what can go wrong, etc). I was SO anxious after attending that class. Every day brought a new problem up and Lord knows, I always was thinking that was happening to me that very moment!! Talk about Nerve-wracking!! It was kinda' funny, because the instructor would talk about the disorder, symptoms and causes and then say directly to me "...and, no, this is not happening to you." Fortunately for me, we had a very close class of only 15 or 16 students and everyone was friends. :heartbeat

    Ha! I had heartburn when we did GI. I had pregnancy dreams during OB (thank God, I wasn't pregnant!)! Now we're doing psych... :uhoh21:

    baaaahaha !!! :chuckle

    Yep.. think we've all done that, for sure. It's just really makes one quite AWARE, doesn't it?

    Don't worry, it WILL pass.

    Good, I am glad I am not alone.

    I have been driving myself nuts...my latest was a bump on my upper arm, and I swore up and down I had cancer, and prob only 6 months to live.
    (this was after our huge lecture on oncology). :uhoh21:

    Turned out to be a darn mosquito bite.....damn mosquitoes! LOL!!

    Conversely, once you become a nurse, you know nothing could happen to you - lol. Good luck.
