If You Are Sick, Don’t Check Google I Beg You

If you have read my last post, you would already know that I have been under the weather for a while now. But things took a turn for the worse when I began to experience nausea and my urine had this amber color.

First, you have to understand that anxiety and paranoia are my middle name, and with that being said, I proceeded to google out the symptoms I noticed.

And from what I gathered, I think I am going to die, because based on my findings, it’s either I have hepatitis, kidney failure, liver failure or cancer, all of which are terrifying.

There are lots of things I haven’t achieved. There are lots of things I want to achieve,so instead of wallowing in sadness, I started planning out my eulogy and the notes I’m going to leave behind for the ones I love.

I talked to my cousin about it and he made me realize that I was freaking out. Though, we agreed that I will go see a doctor, I can’t help but still be in fear. Because, right now, I feel like I don’t have a liver or any kidney, and will probably die before I wake up tomorrow.

Moral lesson, when you are sick, go to a doctor, not google.
