So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.

Is it really paranoia if someone is after me?

I'm such a hypochondriac.

It comes from living with one (my bi-polar mom) and from being a kid who did, indeed, have some health problems. After having a rare form of cancer and being told you only have three months to live, my mom freaked if I sniffled.

So, subsequently, I'm very in tune with my body. Maybe TOO in tune.

As I sit here - about three days late and having a severe pain in my lower right side - I'm convinced I must have an ectopic pregnancy or some organ about to explode. Maybe it is internal bleeding. *sigh*

I know it is stupid, but I'm paranoid. Off to take some Alleve, read Angels and Demons and relax. Oh yeah, and have horrible dreams about an ectopic pregnancy. Maybe there will be some hobbits instead.

    Thanks for the pregnancy stats so all of us with tubal ligations can freak out along with you! I thought I had a tubal pregnancy once when I was about 4 weeks along and was told it was too early for it to be causing pain, turned out to be a burst cyst because I had been on fertility meds. I hope everything works out for you!

    'preciate it there Ma'!!!

    Hope you get to feeling better.

    Gadly, I sense some sarcasm there.

    *pouting*

    Turns out that about 30 seconds after I took a pregnancy test and it was negative, my body relaxed enough for me to start. Go figure.

    By the way, you can get a pregnancy test for $1 at Dollar General. You just have to ask for it. FYI.
