I’m aware that this is a rain cartoon, not a hypochondria cartoon, but I cannot find the hypochondria one and it is too late to scan as it will wake the neighbours. “It is that blessed cartoonist and his 2am scanning again”, they will exclaim as they are awakened from their slumber. 2am typing is even a bit of a problem as I tend to hammer on the keys a bit to make sure the keyboard gets the message. In Eastbourne I used to keep the lady downstairs awake with my heavy typing, but she always said she didn’t mind.
I am awake as I have tingling and numbness in my arm and my leg and various other places. Last night I had the same thing along with some shaking. I have had this before as I think I have told you. I have been to the doctor, who told me that there is nothing wrong with me. This usually happens when I go to the doctor. I describe my various worrying ailments but am told that I am perfectly fine. I find it quite concerning to continue to have various worrying ailments when there is nothing wrong with me, so I become anxious. The combination of various worrying ailments and anxiety is worse than just having various worrying ailments, so I return to the doctor, who says that there is nothing wrong with me apart from perhaps some anxiety. I then become concerned about how to get rid of my anxiety, and so the process continues.
I am telling you this so that you can tell me to snap out of it and stop being so silly.
As an aside: Apologies to all the people still awaiting replies to e-mail messages. I have been suffering from various worrying ailments caused by my own concern about those same worrying ailments, so there have been delays.
