Have you met Google? We are pretty tight these days. I pretty much go to him daily for advice. He is well educated on things from diaper rashes to recipes and has helped me self diagnose dare I say..HUNDREDS of diseases I have accumulated just over the course of the last three years. Yes, I exaggerate. I am fairly certain I have never actually been diagnosed with any disease, but Google would say otherwise.
Today I woke up with a red rash, in place of what I had thought to be a mosquito bite. I called my mom, and the words she uttered “why don’t you Google it” literally made me laugh out loud. If I Google it I know the outcome in the end with be an unavoidable death from an unimaginable disease that even House himself could not diagnose. But alas, I listened to my mother. You know what I found out!? I have a lyme, flesh eating, bacterial disease that will…most certainly…end in an unavoidable death!
Why? Why did I listen to my mother?- LOVE YOU MOM I’ve truly got to stop depending so much on my Pal Google and start calling the doctor more often! I can hear the conversation now:
“Ashley, it’s just a bug bite”
“But Google said…”
Do you do this too? Or am I the only crazy that believes the internet to be a viable source of diagnosis?
