SPOILER ALERT:
Okay, it's fake. Had a minor attack after initially reading it, so thought I'd share.

There isn't even a drug called Tetrahypochondrilin. Why and how do people publish fake stories like this that could really affect others? Cruel....just plain cruel.

OH. MY. GOD.

Okay, I admit, when I first read this I wasn't even worried about cancer. My thing at the moment is heart disease. Well, the thoughts crept in about cancer so I looked back on that article after a day and WHAT DO I FIND? "Oh yeah, you might also get heart disease."

You know that state of sheer terror and complete alertness when you realize something tragic right before you start going apeshit and bouncing off the wall in a state of panic? Well, that's where I was!

After thinking about it for a while, I thought, "I wonder if the drug is legitimate. Come on. If they're going to advertise an effective drug as a 'miracle pill' then I should see if it's real and how to get it."

Well, I went back to the article, wary of its contents, and got the name of the drug. When I saw "hypochon" in the name, I was pretty sure it was fake; sure enough, it linked me back to these comments where my fears got put to rest and I started laughing. Whew.

In short: YOU ARE CRUEL, LEILA! LOL
