In brief: That depends...

Since you "think" you're a hypochondriac, you seem to be open to understanding your "worry" about being sick as something that could be understood in some way other than being "certain" that you are sick.
Since you don't say anything about why you think you're a hypochondriac or how and what you are thinking about "too much", i'm not sure what else to offer.

In brief: Identifying with

symptoms isn't necessarily marching forward with the belief or intense fear that you have a particular condition.
