Do you have Cyberchondria?

The news is reporting on this new illness... LOL! It's where you try to diagnose your own illnesses via the internet.

  • I've been doing it all day. I think I can rule out pancreatitis, intestinal blockage, colon cancer, liver cancer, intestinal strangulation, ovarian cancer, appendicitis with what ails me. I now think I have a touch of a food borne illness because I had to eat nasty ass chick fil a. Nobody else in my family is sick. I just want to be squeezed and have this bloat hiss out of me.

  • Noooo did it twice and got the same "advice" both times - "go directly to the ER you're dying" or something to that effect. Pshaw.

  • i wonder if its related to psych-chondria...ya know when ya take a psych class and think every mental illness "totally sounds like me!"

    i am pretty bad about checking web MD for any and every little thing. i do draw the line at myself...i WILL NOT check it for anything my kids have, i cant go there!

  • That is almost always bad. There was only one time ever that researching online made me feel better about things. I had one boob that was super sore and I felt a knot. I immediately decided I was dying of breast cancer and went online to confirm. I was surprised to find out that I was not dying, that breast cancer doesn't generally hurt or feel smooth. And then I went shopping.
    Every other time, I felt a little shitty and the internet decided I was dying.
