Hypochondriacs often live the longest
When I did my ECDL course in 2007, on it was this guy whose favourite topic of conversation was his illnesses, and all the operations that he had. He sat next to me, and mostly, he said his back hurt, his neck hurt, he had stomach pains and whatever else. Another thing he often said was how much he did for charity, and what a great guy he was, despite his suffering. Yet he went to the gym three times a week. If he could do that, he wasn't exactly at deaths door was he? It is actually often the case, that hypochondriacs live to be 104 years old and die in their sleep of old age. Whereas, those who really are ill in life suffer in silence.
