I love the internet. I love learning about anything and everything without having to go to the library as much anymore. One problem that stems from this love is that anytime I feel like I am getting sick, I begin to research my symptoms and then rush to the doctor's office thinking I have something much worse than I do. Last time I had a sore throat I was convinced I had throat cancer. It turned out to be just a cold. I also once had a skin condition that I self-diagnosed as psoriasis that turned out to be just a reaction to a new soap I was using. I created this blog to remind others that even though the internet is a great place to learn general health care advice, they shouldn't self diagnose specific problems without visiting an actual doctor. They are still just as important as ever!
