Do you have cyberchondria? Do you skip your doctor's office - I mean why waste the money for a copy and the time to sit around a waiting room - and head straight for Dr Google to figure out what is wrong with you? Yes I'm talking to you. Stop denying it! Do we need an intervention? We are all guilty of it - whether we hit up Dr. Google or just our train of thought, for that offline version, down that evil road - cyberchondria that is.
This is where we self diagnose something usually fairly evil. Its not a head ache, its a brain tumor. WE ARE ALL GUILTY OF THIS!
And now to prove it, there has been a study done. Yes a real study to show the effects of cyberchondria. What a waste of time and money. This is like a study to decide if goldfish feel stress, a weed hurts when yo pull it up, or if a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it does it make any noise. Seriously. Cyberchondria is a normal person playing doctor on themselves. Why do we need a study? Self induced anxiety if you ask me (not that I have done it much myself...).
Now it must be a real ailment if there was a study. I wonder if its covered by my insurance?
