"I'm not afraid to die, I just don't want to be there when it happens." - Woody Allen
Over the years this blog has charted its writer's various experiences with illness, physical injury and dental emergency. Last Thursday I managed to achieve all three in one day. I suppose it saves time. I am mostly recovered - ongoing physiotherapy aside - and the only lasting impact probably comes from something my GP said to me. "Don't worry," he reassured me "this has nothing to do with your ticker.". Naturally, I had never previously given a moment's thought to the possibility that there might be anything wrong with my heart. Cue hypochondria on a heroic scale.
