Anyone else get sucked into Googling things incessantly? For the last few days I’ve convinced myself I’m going to die searching Google and Web MD even though I’ve always been pretty healthy. I think it’s all in my head like many other times I’ve rushed to the doctor. I convince myself my dogs are very sick too doing this same thing. They are always fine. Has anyone overcome this or can just sympathize?

Yes, well I do get symptoms most likely all caused by anxiaty but when I google them I then freak out and figure I have something crazy. Sucks I'm trying to not let myself google anything.

I google anything and everything. I have a serious issue with this. It isn’t productive or helpful I know, but I still do it. I can really scare myself sometimes with what I end up getting results on.

I do this all the time, and I'm a BioMed student. I know logically I'm fine but the articles make it seems like I'm on death's list!
