A is for acalculus colocystitis

I've been doing some DBT (dialectic-behavioral therapy) for my borderline personality disorder, and in particular trying a distracting technique very much like A is for apple, B is for banana, but something that actually takes some brain power.

It's the ABC's of hypochondria:

A is for Acalculus Colocystitis
B is for Balanitis
C is for Crypto-orchadism
D is for Diabetes
E is for Elephantiasis
F is for Fibroids
G is for gastroesophageal reflux disease
H is for hemophilia
I is for ischemia
J is for jaundice
K is for kidney stones
L is for lyme disease
M is for menopause
N is for necrotizing fasciitis
O is for orchalgia
P is for Peyronie's Disease
Q is for Quinquaud's decalvans folliculitis
R is for Rigormortis
S is for shingles
T is for Tardive Dyskenesia
U is for Urinary retention
V is for varicocele
W is for Wandering spleen
X is for Xeroderma pigmentosum
Y is for Yellow fever
Z is for zonular cataract

See, now wasn't that fun? The thing that was bothering me before no longer is. Yay!

Now you try.
