The google monster?!
« on: August 30, 2014, 04:05:59 PM »
So I'm basically wondering how you guys keep from googling all the freaking time? I know I feed my anxiety when I google but it's almost (not really but it feels like it) subconscious!! And in the age of smart phones I can be laying in bed notice a symptom and then reach for my phone to look it up! Which of course google lists the worst possible situation and then I panic!  Would love to here what you guys do!

Sadly, I haven't solved this yet. But I agree with Rileybug. Try plugging in anxietyzone or hypochondria in general if you really have to google (you probably still shouldn't because regardless, it gives us ideas).
For example "heart pain anxietyzone" or "heart pain anxiety". That way, you don't tend to get the dumb websites like webmd that say its cancer or some crap.

It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.

I don't really have a trick to not Googling, I just don't.  I do something else or find someone to talk to instead.  Of course I still do Google occasionally, but I try to remember how much I'm going to regret it in a few minutes, and it's usually enough to keep me from doing so.

Just block it out of your mind-you did fine before you knew about it.
