so like many of you, i've had to ban myself from looking up symptoms online because i become convinced i have a terrible disease and am going to drop any minute. i've been really, really good about
not looking things up and i'm finding that i've been having fewer full blown panic attacks.
well, today i was reading the news online at yahoo, and on the right hand side they had a picture of hugh downs with this links under them about
various health issues. one of them said "the surprise symptom of a heart attack that most people don't know about
! (you may not even feel any pain!)" or something to that effect. well, my heart health is one of those "hot button" health anxiety issues for me and so i thought "oh, i have to know what this is!" then i stopped myself and said no no-no more looking up symptoms! then i thought-but! this could be really important information! i better find out what this symptom is! and clicked on the link.
low and behold, it wasn't actually a list of symptoms at ALL-it was just a link to buy a book
hugh downs has written about
health tips! lol-i was fooled by one of those "buy our product!" links and didn't find out any new information about
heart symptoms at all.
i took this to mean that God, in his infinite wisdom, is looking out for me and saying-no, no! no more looking up symptoms, danielle!
love and hugs
