    I would have to say I’m similar when it comes to knowing when something’s not right.  Luckily I don’t have a lot of ailments, so when I do say something’s wrong everyone knows there is.  Your article reminded me of when I broke my arm.  It was a Sunday, so I didn’t want to go to the ER but knew I had to.  When the doctor looked at the x-ray he just said, “Yup, it’s broken, but you already knew that didn’t you?”  I just smiled and nodded.  Being attuned to my body and my aversion to doctors and hospitals can be a bit tricky though.  I usually push it until I have no other options.  Sometimes to my detriment.
