Cranky Quiz # 9: Coming of Age (chapter 10) 

Scoring the Cranky Quiz 

Score 1 point for every yes and 0 for every no. Count a sometimes as a yes. Add your total: 3 points or less (Cool) means you're in good shape, 4 to 7 (Warm) indicates a need to slow down, and 8 to 10 (Hot!) indicates a raging cranky infection. You'll find anti-cranky solutions for each Quiz item in this chapter.

  4. ___ Do you put off your physical annual exams because you're nervous about what the doctor may find?
