Do you ever experience strange pains in your head (or your chest or other areas where vital organs are kept) and read them as signals of your imminent death? You are not alone! Join Mica as she recounts her history of catastrophizing about illness and spontaneously dropping dead. Mica also discusses her rather dizzying experience of being falsely diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, and she lets everyone know what recreational activities are most likely to get you killed. (Spoiler: base jumping is a very bad idea!)
