I do exactly the same thing! I never thought of it quite this way before though. It makes me wonder, if for me (I couldn't and wouldn't speak for you) it's a control thing. I am feeling out of control in 'these' areas or my life, so I will seek to control my body and it's workings. Or maybe for some people it's a level of fear (regarding health) that makes them have a need to control it, or try to.
Our bodies are mysterious and wonderful things. Both ours, and yet autonomous of it's own. Both familiar and alien. It's no wonder we are confused by them sometimes!
Anyway, just some musings-thanks for the inspiration. I'm glad that you are thinking things through-it's a healing step in the process.
Take care, and keep up the good work!
