It's hard not to do, isn't it? Especially when you have a test looming. My issue right now is that I actually have high readings on my liver and I feel that my doctor isn't taking it seriously. My anxiety is actually under control right now, but i'm googling all sorts of liver sites now that the ER doc told me that levels were so high.
I knew they were high, and now they are higher, so freaking a bit. I googled Primary Biliary cirrohhis because my mom had that and found it is hereditary in some cases (mother to daughter)
didn't need to see that, actually.
Thing is, I have an actual concern and I'm still revving myself up in ways that aren't good for me. I can't change TODAY what is happening to me. I can only wait and see what the tests say and move on from there.
All googling does is give you the worse case scenarios and link up all the crazy stuff in our heads that is going on.
its wild, too, because nobody said I have PBC, but they did say I have a tumor in my uterus (fibroid) but still. I actually KNOW I have that and that isn't concerning me in the least....see how wacked we can be?
