This article (
) just posted in the NY Times is about a man who lost all four of his limbs to an infection. Despite this serious condition, the man says the he stayed calm the whole time – he thinks that this is what got him through it. I think this shows the impact that your mindset has when dealing with your health. For a cyberchondriac, a headache mixed followed by a web search produces more stress than the stress this man experienced when losing all four limbs – our health anxiety is caused more by our own thinking than it is by our body ailments alone.
