    Hi to all.

    This weekend I realized that I've had a strong fear of being ill or injured since I was a little girl.

    I know where it came from, but it's my first run reaction to any possibility of being injured or falling ill.

    I'm wondering if this is a big common denominator between TMS people. Is it true for you?

    Hi Marcia. I know that I had a a morbid fascination with illness from a really young age. I remember going directly to the 'disease' section of the Readers Digest and reading it when I was 11 or 12. I would do this with each edition. The fear of getting any of these illnesses horrified me. My obsession with sickness just continued throughout life. I know way too much about disease considering I'm not a doctor and believe me this is NOT a good thing.

    I don't follow any interests that have a high chance of injury
    so I'd say it's true for me.
