Anyway, what I wanted to do with this is: do you think this sounds like me? That hypochondriac thing might be kicking in for me and I just want to say there's something wrong with me. Is this something that I should be looking in to or not?
 I read that whole article now...the last paragraph reminds me of EXACTLY how I felt when I was grounded for three years with nothing to do. Except that, instead of failing classes, I passed, just not with as high of marks. I don't think I've ever read an article that sounded like I could have written it-save for the failing English thing.
