Dr Google

14Sep07

Dr Google is NOT your friend.

I have a doctor’s appointment next week. I’ll write more about the reasons after the appointment, once I have a better idea of what’s up.

I’m clearly not functioning 100% today, because I decided that I would Google some of the things that are sending me to the doctor. The results were astounding – pages and pages of them, everything from medical sites to news articles to personal blogs.

If you believe Dr Google, I am either normal, have an easy-to-treat condition, or should have been dead months ago.

I guess we’ll find out next week!

  1. Google makes me a hypochondriac. I have stopped looking up symptoms because even cold symptoms can convince me that I’m about to die.

    On that note … lovely finding your blog! And good luck to you too on your 5K!

    hahha i did that a few weeks ago and had myself convinced i was going to die within the hour.

    hope everything is ok!

  3. I hope it’s not the third option!

    Hope all is well with you, cous.
    Think positively and stay away from Google.

  5. try not to research your symptons yourself – the quickest way to a heart attack! Doctors are qualified not only in making a diagnosis in the way a computer cant but in delivering the news too. Good luck.

  6. internet research always reveals that i’m pregnant. which has never been actually true.

    Thanks, everyone. I’m glad I’m not the only one that Dr Google has terrified. I’ll keep you posted what the ACTUAL doctor says.
