The Hypochondriac

by Jonathan Hill
Originally published by on 07/01/2013

'Was that there yesterday? I'm sure it wasn't. Or, perhaps it was and I just didn't notice it. But, if I'm noticing it now, does that mean it's got bigger?'

Before he even realised what he was doing, the most thumbed book in his house was in his hands. 'Illness and Disease: a guide for all the family'.

After hours of fruitless searching, he looked up and thought aloud.

'Maybe there is nothing wrong with me after all.'

Apparently satisfied, he made to return the book to its shelf. The heavy volume slipped through his hands and broke his foot.
