All in the mind – a Medical Limerick

A man was dying from cirrhosis,
necrosis, fibrosis and thrombosis
turns out in fact
he was a hypochondriac
under the influence of self-hypnosis!

Sometimes, it really just is all in the mind – so be careful what you tell yourself, or what others tell you to be true.

Self-help books

Self-help books typically help
sort seaweed from kelp
but those not obtuse
or without a screw loose
know better than to yelp!

Sometimes, if people are warm and happy in their pile of shit, it is better to just leave them be.
