This past week has been crazy and so fast paced.
Hey, you know when you’re feeling kinda sick and you decide to check up your symptoms on Google. Then Google blows it out of proportion, then you get it in your head that you’re terminally ill- to the point of exhibiting other symptoms you saw on the internet. I have been a victim to that several times. Hey, I know that’s it’s in my head, it’s quite psychological but still, I’m none the wiser. There was a time that I had a mild urinary infection but got it into my head that I was pregnant (this is where I yell an internal “I’m not dramatic”). I consulted my old friend, Google and “confirmed my fears” (eye roll) Excessive peeing, nausea, spitting, I did all of that. Even when I saw blood stains on my panties, I convinced myself that I was spotting (was on my period, I know, you can roll your eyes again). Yeah, I got over my it when a godawful itching started and got myself checked.
I’m sure that at one point in our lives, we’ve been victims of an overactive imagination. It isn’t strange to feel that, although in some cases, it can be extreme, like we have in the case of those suffering from the “factitious disorder”. I’ll talk more about this in my next post.
P.S. Not saying you shouldn’t consult Google. I mean, it’s the best website to use if you want to stay informed.
