Stop Googling your Symptoms!

Is there anyone else who agrees with me on this? You feel something, anything, just the smallest of pains, a smarting on your toes, what-have-you.

You google it, and within minutes, you’re already starting to sweat, you feel bile rising up your throat, and you have this sudden, desperate need to rush to your doctor (or the emergency room) at 11:00 at night.

It’s no pretty sight but it happens to the best of us. And even if you get over that panicky feeling for one night, it never leaves you. It stays in your mind day in and day out until you can’t take it anymore. Paranoia takes over you.

What is it that you have? Cancer? A tumor? How many days do you still have left to live?

The answer? STOP GOOGLING YOUR SYMPTOMS!

Stop, stop, stop—just STOP!

If it’s eating you up inside that much, and you’ve been feeling whatever it is you’re feeling for a while now, go and see a doctor! Stop being  paranoid once and for all!

If you can’t afford to go to the doctor, then talk to someone, anyone who’s in the medical field, someone who can give you free, yet substantial advice—someone who can tell you what’s going on.

But stop diagnosing yourself of illnesses that you know can literally DESTROY you! You’re going to give yourself a heart attack if you go on this way!

And remember, we’re not saying that “it’s probably nothing,” but dude, it’s probably nothing!
