I'm sure everybody out there has gone and asked Dr. Google about some symptoms and finished by predicting their ultimate demise, but how many of you do this on a regular basis and have become a hypochondriac? In fact, isn't there an actual medical term named"cyberchondriac", just for us lot?
I do it so often it's a wonder how I don't just snap out of it and say "hey, there's no chance in hell you have suddenly developed all these diseases, all at once and somehow they've mystically escape detection and dodged all the latest medical technology and to top it off, you have almost no symptoms of any of them!".
Indeed I do say that to myself, on a regular basis. It may help in the short term but almost never convinces me in the long run. Then I go and get tests done; the tests show nothing and I'm okay for a little while. Then a few months down the line I start to wonder: "what if it just hadn't been far enough developed to be detected and NOW it's getting worse...".
It's amazing that one day I can be convinced I have some nasty disease and the next, it's gone and I'm worryi... no, fearing, something new.
Stupid mind. Stupid thoughts. Anyone else?
