1st/ 'Please... exclaimed her husband, don't tell me for the hundredth time you have a headache...' Did you know Anatole France maintained that the head was not an organ essential for a woman? but of course he is the only one binded on such assertion...
2d/ This man seems to have a bad attack cough. They are often convinced, even with a light cold, it's so serious they are going to die. Reputedly, an hypochondriac, in order to exist, needs a wife always listening to him, attentive toward him. Is the succes of the tv series like dr house a signal this pathology is increasing?
3d/ Who can fight against the flu?

This is VERY good !! You seem to have mastered the english language.

The only thing I might question is the word "pathology"  I think it could have been malady or illness.

Congratulations Veronique !!

1st/ [usually: "In the first photo, etc., but you most certainly know this!] 'Please... exclaimed her husband, don't tell me for the hundredth time you have a headache...' Did you know Anatole France maintained that the head was not an organ essential for a woman? but of course he was the only one assured of  such an assertion...2nd/ This man seems to have a bad fit of coughingMen are often convinced, even with a light cold that it's so serious they are going to die. Reputedly, a hypochondriac, in order to exist, needs a wife always listening to him, attentive towards him. Is the succes of the tv series like [Dr] House a sign this pathology is increasing?3rd/ Who can fight against the flu?

Probably "assured of such an assertion", although correct sounds a little dated, perhaps the more simple "sure of such a thing" would be better!

"was", of course because Anatole France has left us only with his writings!

Again it would be easier to say "this man seems to have a cough", but either is correct.

A hypochondriac because the h is pronounced, or aspirated. There used to be a rule to say we should write an hotel , etc, but the majority now consider this incorrect, although a small minority still disagree!

Excellent!

Did you know that Anatole France, despite his irrefutable claim to literary genius was reputed [to borrow a word from you!] to have a very small-sized brain. This was known because he donated it somewhere or other and the doctors of the time were amazed that his brain was so small and some people of very much lower intelligence had much bigger brains!

I am so disappointed you don't believe in "man flu" it's real, I have had it myself - I almost died! Alors je ne crois pas en crise de foie!

Did you know Anatole France maintained that the head was not an organ essential to a woman?  But of course, he is the only one that is bound by  such an assertion... 2d/ This man seems to have a bad attack of cough. They are often convincing, even when they have  a slight cold.   It's so serious they think they are going to die. Reputedly, a hypochondriac!   In order to exist, he needs taht his  wife always listen to him, and be  attentive towards him.

Very good, veronique!  No, what is increasing even more, is the frequency the widfe tells the husband that she has a headache!
