I used to get aches and pains and just blow them off with a little exercise or aspirin... Now I get a pain and I obsess like crazy and worry constantly. Why is it that we reach a point that we just can't seem to change that way of thinking? Sometimes I think it has to do with all of the news and warning information, deadly bugs and viruses. Bizarre infections all kinds of things. Anybody have a way to mentally rule out the worst thoughts? As example, my hip started hurting last Friday... no injury or reason I am aware of... maybe weather change. So now I think there is some infection in the joint and don't know what to do.. I don't want to run to the doctor right away... he may do nothing anyway? My wife thinks I am nuts for worrying - Stating it is no big deal. Just take some pain meds and it'll pass. Attributes it to getting older etc... But in the back of my mind I still worry about the crazy bug, regardless of how irrational.

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
