The Diary of a Ginger Hypochondriac

Fear is a Luxury…..but so is insanity



Shoot me with the Magic Bullet….

pills0011I have learned today whilst trawling through the Internet mindlessly searching for some illness to match with my list of symptoms when i came across an exciting bit of news…

A cheap pill containing a cocktail of potentially life-saving drugs could halve rates of heart attacks and strokes, a major trial has found….

Click Here for Magic Bullet

Hallelujah…..I’m saved……for the cost of 50p a day i could prevent any major illness and therefore live to a hundred.

“It’s a ‘proof of concept’ study that shows the five ingredients do what they should – ie reduce blood pressure, cholesterol and so on”

Its a miracle…sign me up now and give it to me….Among my many pills and vitamins i consume daily i think this pill will be the most easy to swallow….i have already contacted my GP to obtain further information into this life saving little smartie…

However,after reading further down the page i discover that there are many more trials to be done and may not be released for some 5 years……

I am Devastated…how can they possibly justify holding back….how dare they, don’t they realise that there are people who need this now, me more than anyone…I’m at deaths door….

I have now written a letter to my Local MP complaining of the situation and how they are risking my life….50p a day i tell you……..

Not a good day…..i resume my search……

un café décaféiné et pas trop chaud……


retro-coffee-funny12I woke this morning normally:

  1. Checked i was still alive
  2. Looked in mirror for any abnormalities
  3. Had a good shower (approx 15mins scrub time)
  4. Checked sky news for any major events
  5. Made a cup of  hot tea……………..

Whilst enjoying my cup of hot tea in front of the news and perusing the morning tabloids i read the headline: “Piping Hot Tea Can Give You Cancer”……….

After dropping my tea and giving myself  Third degree burns i composed myself..reading further i discover…..

“Researchers found drinking tea with a temperature above 70C increased the risk of oesophageal cancer eight-fold. But if you let your cuppa cool for five minutes it should be safe to drink, experts have said”

So following this devastating news and one more blow to my sanity…i find myself  surfing the Internet for any reported fatalities of tea drinking, i also booked  in for another GP appointment to have my mouth and throat inspected, and i have decided to invest in a thermometer (digital).

 I have now switched to coffee on a permenent basis……decaf coffee…..definatly decaf coffee….decaf coffee due to palpitations and twitching…..

If you still fancy and nice cup of hot tea visit: Tea Drinkers BEWARE

“un café décaféiné et pas trop chaud……….one decaf coffee not too hot….”
