I Have Diagnosed Myself with Cyberchondria!!


Professional Article on Cyberchondria

So all of my friends at college have at some point in time made fun of me for diagnosing myself with some obscure or deadly disease due to a temporary symptom that pulled up that ailment on WebMD or the like. Sometimes it has downright stressed me out!! But now, after seeing this article, I am definitely able to diagnose myself with a disease without a shadow of a doubt.

Cyberchondria!

Apparently what I am describing from personal experience is fairly common, and can add to your stress levels, without your worries ever being the truth!! Interesting - I am glad they gave it a name!! lol!

  9. Oh wow. Proof that we are really in a technological age. The funniest part is that I have worried about this myself...very often looking something up out of curiosity and getting a ridiculous answer.
