It is addictive but it makes you feel worse. Welcome to the club. Take care

Good for you, I know it's going to be hard and I might need support but I'm going to try

Along with googling do most of you have problems with believing your doctor. I go out of the surgery happy but in a few hours I am back to square one

Yes Ive recently lost a bit of faith in my doctor and previously I trusted him............. not good feeling xx

I try so hard to believe them but it is so difficult. I realise they are the experts but that doesn't seem to help

I'll join you Holly.

I'm trying hard not to Google but did today for reassurance and of course found none!

Hows about googling something really nice as a diversionary tactic for your brain........ maybe some hobby youd like to take up, your favourite gorgeous hunk....... gossip magazines??

Only a thought hun, but sometimes we have too much time to think!!

Hope youre ok today xx

Hi Holly

I have been on here about 9 months & was like you before , always on google , scaring myself out my wits

It was suggested then , that a non googling ban was an idea , I joined & I have slipped just twice since , which is very good for me

Each time I did , it had not changed one bit , so I soon realized , dont slip , bad idea

When you feel yourself just about to put something in , jump on here instead & see whats happening , post , answer a few posts , till that urge passes , let everyone no , you have gone a day or 2 days without googling & let people tell you how well you have done , as you will have & it encourages you to keep of

You can do it , i was terrible with it & if I can , i no you can as well :-/

love
