    Smile Medical Shows????

    This might seem dumb but I have a weird question.....Do any of you ever find yourself watching shows like 'House' or 'Medical Examiner', knowing good and well that it's going to make you freak out later but you just can't stop???????

    Yeah I do. I try not to but somtimes i just do it anyway :s
    Its annoying to try not to watch medical things though because theres so many programs with medical stuff in them, and films actualy. I went to see the will smith film "seven pounds" the other month, dont know if anyones seen it but that really freaked me out.

    lol yep! I am addicted to grey's anatomy. Why I do this to myself I do not know.
    Courage does not always roar. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow".

    As an ex-nurse I used to watch them, but had to stop as it was like Googling!! Just a mention of Heart attack, Stroke etc set me off thinking I would have one soon!! Long time ago now but I never watch anything remotely medical now. XXXX

    I really really hate the embarrassing illnesses one. I convince myself I have at least one of the conditions every time I watch it but unfortunately my mum already thinks I am a hypochondriac of epic proportions and it is her who gets to choose what we watch on TV, so I daren't tell her it is freaking me out, I just sit through it in silent panic then let it ruin my life for the next week! Fun fun fun! :S

    Dontcha just LOVE health anxiety?! Maybe not!

    I have found the antidote though... Just come on here and see how many other people do that exact same thing and suddenly everything seems a lot more trivial and you realise it is all just your health anxiety. Phew!!

    I have a phrase for programmes like that. I call them 'car crash' programmes because when they come on you can't help watching them, even though actually, you know you will regret it afterwards!

    Stay away guys! Get yourselves a jigsaw and don't watch any more health programmes!!!!

    NO i avoid them at all costs. first - i hate those shows. i like watching tv in some ways for its aesthetic value, shows with great fashion, great backdrops, etc. are fun and add to the interest of the show for me. seeing people schlomp around in scrubs all day in a fluorescent lit white hospital set makes me itchy, also i hate going to the doctors office so why would i watch it on tv? i have this theory that when ER became popular way too many producers thought to replicate the formula and my thought is - WHY!!!!!!!!!! why do i want to see two residents or a nurse and a doctor make eyes at each other over an ebola virus victim? why? i don't! i hate these shows. i hate that all of my friends watch them. ok i am going to end my tangent now.
    I pack my trunk, embrace my friends, embark on the sea, and at last wake up in Naples, and there beside me is the Stern Fact, the Sad Self, unrelenting, identical, that I fled from. -Ralph Waldo Emerson
