I got my motivation letter from my gp today together with copies of Lancet's results (above!) and will fax it to chronics tomorrow and see what happens! He said in the letter they recommended I start with 60mg not 80mg!!

Thanks

Well at least I know I am NOT a hypochondriac! I took the above test and this is what it said:

17 - 26. (26) You have a reasonably healthy lifestyle and a healthy perspective on medical matters. You don't like being ill, and feel relieved when ailments disappear. You value your independence and find it irritating when others use disease to manipulate friends or family. You find endless stories about ill health boring. But if something is really wrong, you will take adequate care of yourself. You are practical and not a hypochondriac.
