5. You have reoccurring dreams that the most mundane activities will end in disaster...

6. ...which makes you extremely cautious in every activity you do, even if it disrupts everyone else's life.

7. Or, well, you seriously consider not moving at all for the rest of your life.

9. You believe that a vitamin the size of your body does the same thing as any other medicine.
