(my doctor looks nothing like this though)
Well, I recently (as in today) had a minor health scare freak out as a result of my new initiative. Without going into to many details, I got the results of some bloodwork/tests I had done with the doctor and got a surprising, somewhat scary result from it. It was something that completely caught me off guard. And to make matters worse, the nurse made it sound like it wasn't serious at all and it was no big deal. She just casually dropped this bomb on me and then went about her day.
So I immediately dropped everything I was supposed to do at work and went on an internet researching binge. There is some scary stuff out there, y'all! I had convinced myself that it was the end of the world and I was dying. Clearly, I'm not dramatic at all :)
And then I remembered I had a few rational friends out there that may be able to talk me off the ledge. After a
Moral of the story-
The internet is a scary place and will tell you you're dying if you google enough things!
Go to the doctor regularly (i.e. don't wait 3 years in between check-ups)
And trust your friends. They always have your back. Thank goodness!
